Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has once again defended Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).
Abaribe who spoke as he was being questioned on Channels Television, said the IPOB leader is not a criminal but an unarmed and nonviolent activist.
The lawmaker’s statement followed after the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, claimed that Abaribe stood for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, whom he considered as a thief.
In the interview, Abaribe made it clear to him that a judge said a senator was expected to stand for Nnamdi Kanu as a shortie and he(Abaribe) did, then he (Nnamdi Kanu) was assaulted by the military and tried to run, and Garba Shehu turned around and named him a thief.
He went on to say that Nnamdi Kanu was not a suspect. He further asked to know what made Nnamdi Kanu a convict in fact. Nnamdi Kanu never bore any AK-47s or threatened.
He made it clear that Nnamdi Kanu was just holding flags and calling for a new republic.
On many occasions, Senator Abaribe has shown that he is a courageous and articulate guy who is never ashamed to speak out, and that is why many Nigerians love him.
