Sources disclose that the statue is to be erected somewhere in Owerri, Imo state. Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), tends to have become very powerful following his release from Kuje prison.
Buhari aided Kanu’s popularity
Reno Omokri, the former media aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of making Nnamdi Kanu popular. Omokri, in a tweet he made on Friday, May 26, claimed that if the president had not order the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, he wouldn’t have become one of the most popular men in Nigeria at the moment.
“The worst thing PMB could have done was jailing Nnamdi Kanu. He is responsible for making him one of the most popular men in Nigeria today!”
Recall that plusmilang.com reported that Nnamdi Kanu was arrested on October 14, 2015 in a Lagos hotel.
The order to arrest Nnamdi Kanu came from president Buhari, and Kanu who was incarcerated for almost two years become more famous among pro-Biafra agitators during his stay in prison.
Popular Nigerian politicians, leaders have visited Kanu in his Abia home since he was released on bail from the Nigerian prison.
