Why not Nnamdi Kanu in presidential amnesty list? Why only e-x-Govs Dariye, Nyame? Fr. Mbaka questions



Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), has questioned why Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, was excluded in the list of President Muhammadu Buhari’s amnesty programme as he did to former Governors Joshua Dariye and Jolly Nyame, stating that, as a matter of fact, Kanu should have been first in the list.


Mbaka said this would have been a motivating factor to end the ongoing southeast Mondays sit-at-home programme set in place for unconditional release of the IPOB leader, thereby giving peace a chance in the region.

Mbaka who disclosed this in his Easter message, at the weekend, lamented: “the sit-at-home programme is costing us millions of money, especially to business people. We cannot pretend not to know the solution.

“They should release our brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. If he is released, the sit-at-home programme will definitely stop. You can’t stop it by force.

 “Soludo (Anambra governor) tried to use force to stop it. He is feeling the heat today. So, let them release our brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and sit at home will stop.

“He is our brother. We lifted our hands up to God to pray for his release. We can’t run away from it.

“I heard the names of some people that were granted presidential amnesty, but his name was not there. I wonder what his crime was. Why?/SHARE THIS
