Bishop Kukah Says Govt Persecuting Nnamdi Kanu Only Serves To Strengthen The Biafra Movement

Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, expressed his belief that neither a military nor judicial solution to the Biafra crisis is tenable.

Bishop Kukah made this statement in reaction to the fresh charges recently filed against Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader and Radio Biafra Director Nnamdi Kanu. It will be recalled that SaharaReporters recently published a story concerning the six new charges, including treasonable felony, filed against Mr. Kanu by the Federal Government.

“A military and judicial approach would not work. We are in a democracy where dialogue, diplomacy and patience are the hallmarks of good leadership.

“The Federal Government should open a backdoor channel to get Kanu to renounce alleged hate speeches and violence,” the Bishop told Punch Newspaper.

Bishop Kukah did not, however, advocate that Mr. Kanu was “innocent”, but rather that his continued persecution by the government only serves to strengthen the nascent Biafra movement.
