The Northern Elders Forum, NEF has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari not to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra from custody.

This is in reaction to a meeting held by the president with the Southeast elders, Wherein Buhari promised to consider releasing Kanu.

NEF in a statement signed by the Director of Publicity, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed said: ”Nnamdi Kanu’s release will do serious injury to Nigeria which is already threatened by security and other challenges,

The statement partly reads: ” We have carefully studied the request of Igbo Elders for President Muhammadu Buhari to terminate the trial of Nnamdi Kanu and release him unconditionally. It has also noted President Buhari’s response which both raised very weighty issues related to the request and his commitment to consider it.

“The Forum notes that there are no safe, constructive or informed grounds for granting the request, and advised that President Buhari will do serious injury to a country already threatened by multiple challenges to its security and territorial integrity if he delays announcing the only responsible response, which is that the judicial process in the case of Kanu must be allowed to run its course.”
