The Northern Consensus Movement, a coalition of 75 northern groups, has declared a reward of N100 million for anyone who can deliver Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, for the continuation of his treason trial.
The groups accused Kanu and the Eastern Security Network (IPOB’s militia wing) of masterminding the recent wave of attacks on Northerners in the Southeast via what they called “hate speech” at a news conference in Abuja, the nation’s capital, on Thursday evening.
Dr. Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu, speaking on behalf of the Coalition, requested the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and the European Union to make it easier for Nnamdi Kanu to return to Nigeria and face the allegations against him.
“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 champion 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,” Aliyu said
“These guys should be investigated how they came about N100 million Naira inside this buhari hardship. That’s my only concern. The rest is kunu talk.”
“This is too little, at least 500 million dollars. That guy is worth more than a billion dollars right now.”
“The Money is too small na, you people can make it 15billion to show how serious you are . Also, don’t forget to put the same bounty on Boko haraH and herdsmen. You people also ought to put the same bounty on the federal government for releasing Boko Haram all in the name of repentant Boko Haram members.”
“Suddenly, they forgot how many southerners their Boko Haram and Herdsmen, bandits killed all these years, not mentioning our military personnel from the southern zone that has been killed by terrorists of the north. The fact is when you protect your own and want others to be killed. F””k all the northerners”
“Nnamdi Kanu had become a headache to Northern Taliban group for telling his people to defend themselves against state-sponsored Terrorist herdsmen.”
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a hero who comes from a long line of industrious, intelligent, and entrepreneurial people. Through him, we will one day declare to the world the reborn Republic of Biafra. If South Sudan did it, Biafra will too.”
“Animal talk… Lazy northern cattle looking for Nnamdi Kanu when hunters are the only option left as guards for school in their desert north”
“Did you place that on Boko haram leader and herders? Instead of you people seeking for apology overall, you have caused in this country you still continue to seek more damages. Complete it 2billion dollars you will have him in the northern part. You know he doesn’t use Naria now but dollars. So make it in dollar ok.”
“These fools did not place any bounty on Boko Haram. This underscores that Hausa and Fulani groups are the ones sponsoring Boko Haram that has been ravaging their land in the north. Break this freaking union.”
“How many bounties have been placed on the Fulani Kidnapper herdsmen rapists or Boko Haram and their collaborators? Under their watchful eyes, a group of bandits killed students in Kaduna and took nearly 100 million Naira as ransoms . Where were these twats?”
