Wike to FG: Don’t Discriminate … investigate bandits like Nnamdi Kanu

Go after bandits and boko haram the way you are active on Nnamdi Kanu case.



Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has urged the federal government to investigate bandits and other characters who are causing problems in different parts of the country as it did for Nnamdi Kanu .

Kanu, leader of the banned indigenous population of Biafra (IPOB), was arrested on Sunday after almost four years in self-exile and extradited to the country.

Newsvillepost reported how he was lured to a location in an African country with a promise to donate millions in cash and then arrested.

Wike urged the government to give bandits and other elements causing security problems in the country the same amount of attention it has given Kanu.


Said this when speaking to Arise TV on Thursday. The governor said although he disapproves of Kanu’s methods, authorities should avoid extrajudicial punishing the IPOB leader for being from a certain part of the country.

“Let people know that you are not prosecuting because you are from a certain part of the country. You also need to take steps to say that all of these people who caused the security crisis in Nigeria are also being prosecuted, ”he said.

“Let’s not make a fuss about the persecution of Nnamdi Kanu.

Gov Wike

I don’t believe in his principles. I came out and said that you cannot annex my state to be part of yours. But that doesn’t mean he will not allow it. ” the law to represent his cause.

“Just as you arrested Nnamdi Kanu, so should everyone else you meet should be led to the book to face the wrath of the law. You cannot discriminate.

I can don’t say why Nnamdi Kanu comes from a certain area, let’s do that. The same principle should apply to bandits, Miyetti Allah and others. “
