Former ex-President Muhammadu Buhari spokesman Femi Adesina has revealed that the president prevented Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, from being killed in his hiding place.

Adesina claimed the previous administration would have removed Kanu, but Buhari stopped it.

Adesina’s book, “Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023),” was released in Abuja last week and included this information.

He claimed Buhari had done him a favor by permitting Kanu’s extradition to Nigeria.

According to Adesina, the former president revealed this information when he met with a delegation of Igbo people under the auspices of “Highly-Respected Igbo Greats.”

He quoted Buhari as telling the delegation: “In the past six years, I have developed a system where I don’t interfere with the judiciary. That was why, in the case of Kanu, I said the best way to subject him to the system.

“Let him make his case in court instead of giving a terrible impression of the country from outside.

“I feel it is a favor to give him (Kanu) that opportunity. Government could have mobilized to eliminate him where he was, but we did not do that.”

Kanu underwent an extraordinary rendition from Kenya in June 2021 in order to proceed with his terrorism prosecution.

This came when the IPOB leader decided to break his bail terms and flee Nigeria.
