Soyinka: FG Kidnapped Nnamdi Kanu — His Arrest Was Wrong by HonNL: 1:17pm On Jul 05, 2021
Wole Soyinka, Nobel laureate, says Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped by the Federal Government.

Kanu was on Sunday extradited to Nigeria to face trial after he jumped bail and fled the country in 2017.

Speaking with BBC Pidgin on Monday, the literary icon said there would be an uproar in the country if the truth of how Kanu was arrested becomes known.

“It’s not for me to tell the president to prepare itself because it’s going to be a huge squawk when the truth about how Kanu was arrested comes out. People are alleging this or that. That is one phase whether Nigeria has acted outside international law,” Soyinka said.

“The second issue, however, has to do with Kanu’s conduct outside the nation. There’s been a level of hate rhetoric which has been unfortunate, from Kanu. Hate rhetoric is an issue that can only be judged by the laws of any nation.

“Was it right ‘to have been kidnapped?’ You can say intercepted as much as you want but I think Kanu was kidnapped. That is wrong internationally and morally.

Commenting on the reactions that have trailed the swiftness with which the federal government arrested Kanu, the Nobel laureate said the federal government has not shown the same eagerness in going after bandits and insurgents.

“The Government can not wash itself clean on what seems to be a kind of comparative energy in pursuing the destabilised forces in the nation,” he said.

“If we take ourselves back, once when I threw a challenge to Buhari, what I expect from a true leader is to issue an order, give a deadline that any illegal occupant of any villages, farms is given 48hours to quit after which the mighty forces of the nation will be unleashed on them. It was ignored.

“Years later, he came to say ‘we will respond to these people in the language they understand’. This is what I expected him to have said years ago, at the beginning of the insurgency.

“Their leadership–the Miyetti Allah — should have been arrested years ago, long before IPOB was declared a terrorist organisation.”

He said rather, the Miyetti Allah group has continued to act unchecked while the federal government has refused to “mount the same energy against them”.

“So people are right to say there has been an unequal and irregular approach to security and enforcement in this nation,” he added.

He advised the federal government to stop the blame game and take action.

This administration owe Nigeria the responsibility of telling us how the presumed fugitive was arrested/ kidnapped before we get the details from elsewhere. I just hope they did this right based on international standards or else SHAME

Hehehe.

Tell them senior man.

The zombies will soon come for you sir. They will term you enemy of the state. Forgetting the fact that you once believed in the project called "CHANGE", before you realized how empty and misleading their Promise's are.

Most of the supporters of our darling daddy are like chameleons,they change the narrative once you are against their Messiah.

Nnamdi Kanu deserves to be in jail for a long time. For every innocent soul killed in SE, let it be a year added to his jail term.

An Igbo proverb says that he who is surrounded by enemies employs eternal vigilance. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu broke the code of eternal vigilance. The deed has been done. He has fallen into the hands of his foes. IRONICALLY, he is securely kept in an underground cell like an animal in the ZOO.

International law is blurred by international trade and interests of developed economies. Kanu offers LITTLE compared to FG. Kanu can only rue now and take what follows with equanimity.

useless assertion. It doesn't help the captured man in any way. Those hoping that FIFA or Adidas will intervene are just wallowing in wishful thinking.

He was enticed with cheese and Kenyan Bakassi.The kidnap specialist,Major General Buhari, knew the two vital things needed to lure Nnamdi Kanu based on his antecedents out of hiding was money and women; then trapped him like a rat.

Re: Soyinka: FG Kidnapped Nnamdi Kanu — His Arrest Was Wrong by CamusMidas: 1:32pm On Jul 05, 2021
This headline is wack, it would prevent most people from actually reading the numerous point he stated from the article. For instance the quote below.


“If we take ourselves back, once when I threw a challenge to Buhari, what I expect from a true leader is to issue an order, give a deadline that any illegal occupant of any villages, farms is given 48hours to quit after which the mighty forces of the nation will be unleashed on them". It was ignored.

Was there any reason for not adopting this strategy? Even if the government have no intention of sending anyone there, the proclamation alone would have been awesome.

His running away from the Nigerian court was also wrong. If Kanu was wise, he would not have come to Africa continent.
