Metropolitan Archbishop of Enugu Anglican Province, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, criticized Kanu for the manner he was arrested.

 

He said: “I think his extradition is a good development, which will bring a little bit of calm and peace to the boys he has been instigating and to Igboland so that we can have a peaceful atmosphere.

 

“Nnamdi Kanu jumped bail. He did not appreciate Senator Abaribe and others who secured the bail for him. Rather, when he was abroad, he was instigating people to cause confusion .

 

“We warned him several times to stop that. It’s not only that, we felt that if you are a leader, you should come down here so we can discuss with others on how to solve the problem. First of all, settle this case for which you jumped bail.”

 

In his view, Kanu showed poor judgment as a leader by being lured to Brazil, although security agencies have not confirmed how Kanu was arrested.

 

 

The Archbishop said: “He played into the hands of Nigerian Intelligence Agency, who set him up with a woman from London to Brazil where he was arrested and then, tranquilised to the point of bringing him to Nigeria.

 

“That shows irresponsibility. How can a woman and tranquilliser be a way of catching you if you are really a very strong leader?

 

 

“I feel disappointed in him because they lured him out of London to Brazil with a woman. It’s a shame.

 

“Let him face the music and then, come out and let us know what his view about Biafra and agitation is. We will then, do it with dialogue and peace, instead of all this violence and killing which I condemn.

 

 

“We don’t want violence. We don’t want killings and destruction of our properties.”

 

On fears that Kanu may be eliminated, Archbishop Chukwuma said that would amount to looking for the trouble of the Igbo.

 

He added: “We will not allow him to be eliminated. Let him face his trial and judgment.

 

“They cannot eliminate anybody like that. If they eliminate him, then, they are on a looking for more trouble.”

  1. Provide evidence, ex- Eagles coach replies minister

    The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has accused former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia of being economical with the truth in the wake of his life ban by FIFA, The PUNCH reports.

    World football body FIFA’s life ban Siasia in 2019 for allegedly agreeing to “receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches” was on June 28 reduced to five years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, with the court also canceling a fine of $50,000 imposed on him.

    Siasia, in a press conference in Abuja, on Friday disclosed that he met Dare after the ban, but alleged that “all the minister could say was that there was no money.”

    But Dare said the 53-year-old coach was given cash, adding that details of the transactions would be made public soon.

    “Siasia is not telling the truth and the ministry and the government will come out with the facts of the cash he collected and the efforts we made. He is not telling the truth,” Dare said in an audio made available to The PUNCH.

    Also, a statement from Dare’s media office on Tuesday said, “The minister stayed on top of the case by pulling all strings to assist Siasia. In addition to the governors of Edo, Delta, and Lagos, he made an appeal to the Chairman of the Governors’ Forum, the Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi. In another instance, the minister took Siasia on a visit to the then Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson to appeal for support for him.

    “Siasia’s claim that government did nothing to assist him is untrue, deceitful, and misleading. While there are no budgetary provisions for such incidents, the ministry and the Office of the Minister gave Siasia all the support that led to the mitigation of his life ban from football-related activities.”

    Siasia said, “If he (Dare) has any proof of how they (the government) helped me, they should bring it out, I’m not running away. It’s not a problem. I said the government didn’t help me. I met with him (Dare), he’s a nice guy and he was trying to help but he could not. What did I say that was bad there?

  3. In his view, Kanu showed poor judgment as a leader by being lured to Brazil, although security agencies have not confirmed how Kanu was arrested.

    1. I don’t understand. KANU jumped bail KANU jumped bail, Let be realistic , I you were to be him , won’t you run, in fact if you were him, by now you are dead already , Govt of a country invaded you house with armoured cars to kill you and you see a means of escaping , you stayed back to face them and you know they are there to kill you , if animals know that some one wants to kill them they will run away is it human being that won’t run for his life ?
