Senator Shehu Sani, has lashed out at the Northern groups that declared Nnamdi Kanu wanted and placed a N100m bounty on his whereabouts.
Recall the bounty was placed by the Northern Consensus Movement (NCM), a coalition of 75 Northern groups and that made this known during a media briefing in Abuja.
Speaking on behalf of the coalition, Dr. Awwal Aliyu said:
“The Northern Consensus Movement, an amalgamation of more than 75 civil society groups of Northern extraction, has taken it upon ourselves, as active citizens of this country, Nigeria, to state in unequivocal terms that:
“We are declaring Nnamdi Kanu wanted for crimes against humanity and for instigating the killing of innocent Northerners in the southeast via his hate speech.
“We want him to answer for the killing and destruction of Northerners residing and undertaking lawful businesses in the southeastern part of Nigeria.
“So, we are placing a bounty of N100m as an offer to anyone who can produce him alive, hale, hearty, and uninjured to us for onward delivery to the security agencies for the continuation of his prosecution.
We call on both the US, the UK, and the EU, a champions of democracy, rule of law, and freedoms of speech and expression to kindly and humble respect Nigeria’s sovereignty and facilitate the repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria so that he can face his treason, and possibly a fresh terrorism and genocide charges against innocent citizens of Nigeria.”
In a swift reaction to the news, Shehu Sani has fired the group calling for the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu as he told them to make efforts to solve the insecurity plaguing the north before they set their eyes on a different zone.
He wrote: “We have terrorists and bandits here up north, killing and kidnapping our people; why not the Northern groups place a price tag on the heads of their leaders instead of placing them on someone far abroad,
