Release Nnamdi Kanu Now To Save Nigeria From War, Acting President Osinbajo Urged

Since the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested in Lagos on 14 October, 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari-led government and held in prison since, many notable Nigerians have been calling for his release to avert needless war in the country.
In his article, Adigun Emmanuel Sunday writes an open letter to the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Oshinbajo on why Nnamdi Kanu should not continue to remain in detention.
Dear President of Nigeria,
I am very much aware that few people would be groaning by this very letter. I also understand that some cabals in Aso Rock would questions my position to address you as the President of Nigeria.
Let me make it clear to you that I am not writing this letter to you as your subject; I am doing so as a citizen of Biafra, Nigeria did not give me anything or did anything for me, I have never collected anything from Nigeria, so it is obvious that nothing concerns me with Nigeria.
Going with what Presidency has been telling Nigerians, all is not well with President Muhammadu Buhari’s health and that is the price of not listening to God. This will show Buhari that the God of Nnamdi Kanu is alive; that God that divided the red sea, God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, and Joshua should he eventually come back alive; let it be that God warned him for the last time but I strongly feel God is angry that he might not have a second chance.
Let me make it clear once more; Nnamdi Kanu has become an institution or rather an ideology. Nnamdi Kanu is not a political leader and should anything happen to him; not only shall violence or war overwhelm us; over 70 million Biafrans would fight to death, your children might not be affected because you will take them out of this shore.
You might not as well die because you will have much to die before you do; but hence the blood of those that died will be upon you, God will not let the wicked have peace.
But in the end; like the ‘Mossad’ of Israel; Biafra shall hunt down the perpetrators of the genocide against her and those that killed her wards. Should anything happen to Nnamdi Kanu, Biafra shall defend or avenge their ideology or institution.
This war of aggression will never end even though Biafra comes because the agitation will no longer be for Biafra but for vengeance. It is therefore time for Nnamdi Kanu to be released from prison and his peaceful agitation fairly addressed.
The court should be allowed to administer justice and you as the President of Nigeria either on acting or substantive capacity should direct the court to embrace justice.
I bet you; the more you try to fix Nigeria is the more it worsen, God is angry because of the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu. As I have said; it is one thing to oppose Nnamdi Kanu but a different thing to detain him. Whatsoever the case maybe; you are now the President of Nigeria and God took Buhari away to make a name for Himself.
Buhari’s death cannot be a testimony to me; everything good or bad is working to the restoration of Biafra. Without Buhari’s order for the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu; Biafra would have not come up to this point of certainty and his continued detention likely to ensure total destruction of Nigeria. I wish Buhari long life but the wish of God Almighty supersedes; I also thank Buhari for everything he has done, for God hardened the heart of Pharaoh and same goes to Buhari.
I write to you because you are also at the risk of same fate with Buhari unless Nnamdi Kanu’s agitation is approached with the right/Godly strategy. Before God and before man; it is unholy to incarcerate Nnamdi Kanu for simply asking for self-rule. His demand can be addressed by various ways without involving detention and killing.
His call can be turned down wisely and lobbied with alternative solution to the foundation of Nigeria, illustratively, restructure but we have all made mistake, Biafrans have died in thousands and thus cannot go back on total independence.
There is yet a golden opportunity to addressing this issue, release Nnamdi Kanu and campaign that people vote against Biafra in a referendum or debate him on why Biafra is not the right option and he would eventually succumb to superior reason.
A Christian would have seen the handwriting on the wall. Nnamdi Kanu is prepared by God and any standard against him will be absolutely obliterated from the face of the earth if proves too stubborn. It is understandable to share opposing view to whatsoever Nnamdi Kanu was prepared for but to lock him up for his view is another thing.
You would understand me perfectly when I make some illustrations because you were once a pastor before politics proved more important than your heavenly call. You might as well have been called to service in politics to enable you discharge that call through directly touching lives, it is left for you to understand where you are coming from and where you are going.
If you quickly turn to the Bible and take a glance at the history of Moses; you would be well convinced that Egypt vs Israel is playing out in Nigeria. Nnamdi Kanu said: “let my people go’ and Buhari said “I won’t let your people go” Buhari went even further to detain Nnamdi Kanu that he would not go because he delivered a simple message.
Vice president Osibanjo; I need not to start stating everything that supernaturally have been taking place since Nnamdi Kanu was detained. There is famine; there is death, there is confusion, and everything that happened in Egypt when Moses was fighting with Pharaoh had taken place in Nigeria.
What is happening to Muhammadu Buhari today is nothing physical but spiritual and you of all people know this more than I do. The biggest problem confronting Muhammadu Buhari is the fact that he is not a Christian; he doesn’t believe in the prophets and neither does he believe that God of Abraham is real.
He sees Biblical Moses as a tale and Nnamdi Kanu as ordinary man; he doesn’t believe in spiritual aspect of things. If he does, he would have known that heaven is angry for the continued incarceration of
Nnamdi Kanu and everything happening in Nigeria today is spiritual implication of detaining a God sent. You have the right to give it a spiritual check. I strongly urge you to look beyond and know that this is a fragile time to continue to detain Nnamdi Kanu.
The detention of Nnamdi Kanu has not stopped Biafra agitation and neither has it negatively affected the struggle but instead lifted the agitation
The cabals holding Nnamdi Kanu want nothing both religious/ethnic war and we must do everything possible to overcome the devil. But should you be opposed to this letter; let heaven prevail and the will of God come to pass. God can’t speak to you from heaven; he can use my pen and can use any man but in the end, a wise man knows when God speaks.
