The Nigerian Army has described the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a man with no means of livelihood , who simply uses propaganda to garner followership while Nigeria army champions truth with equity and justice.
This statement was made by the director of army public relations,Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, at a media conference on the military’s enhancement of human rights in Abuja that lasted for two days.
He furthermore stressed that Kanu’s followers were in a ‘one-chance vehicle’ and that “There was a speculation that somebody (Kanu) went into hiding.”
“Now, I can’t remember the day but in an interview on Channels TV, one of Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brothers said that he was in hiding and he knew where he was.”
“And one lawyer came up that he has taken the chief of army staff to court.”
“Now, who gave you the brief? You said you do not know where he (Kanu) is. Now, who gave you the brief? “
“And the media is asking us where Nnamdi Kanu is ? Why not ask the man that said so who gave him the brief to take people to court when he does not know where the man is? “
This is somebody standing trial in a “criminal case”.
“Sometimes, whether we like it or not, we want to stand against the truth. But no matter how long, the truth will come to pass on October 17.”
“I can speak eloquently; so what? If I can speak like him, I can also have my own group, that’s exactly what is happening.”
“So, what is the essence of our education as a people? You know that somebody is in a criminal case, and you believe in him” the army chief stressed.
