It is no longer news that Buhari has promised to consider the request for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed IPOB group who is standing trial in Abuja on charges of treasonable felony and terrorism.

Buhari made this promise during a meeting in Aso Villa with a group of highly respected Igbo leaders from the Southeast on Friday. Mbazulike Amaechi, the only First Republic Minister alive who led the group begged Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu to him and to also apply a political solution to resolve the Biafra agitation by IPOB in the Southeast

Buhari who had nothing but respect for Amaechi stated that the group's request will be extremely difficult for him to grant, however, he would consider it.

Reacting to President Buhari's remark that he would consider the release of Nnamdi Kanu, a northern group known as Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) has outlined a host of reasons why releasing Nnamdi Kanu will be a very big mistake which we will all regret. In this article, we will be discussing two strong points the Arewa group made that is worth taking note of

1. The AYCF through its national president Yerima Shettima noted that Kanu is not remorseful and if he is released, he may boast of being begged

The feelings of guilt and remorse can serve as a springboard to positive behavior. From all indications, Kanu still believes that he is fighting a just cause, hence he doesn't regret any of his actions which have led to unnecessary hardship, insecurity, and the death of hundreds of people in the Southeast.

2. If Nnamdi Kanu is released, millions of 'Nnamdi Kanu' will emerge to further complicate the insecurity situation in the Southeast

Recall that in 2005, Ralph Uwazuruike the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) was arrested by former president Olusegun Obasanjo for leading a violent agitation for a Biafran nation. Several MASSOB members engaged in violent protest against Uwazuruike's detention and this led to insecurity in the Southeast during that period. Uwazuruike was later released after two years in a move analyst hailed as a diplomatic approach to the region's problem by the government, but he did not end his violent agitation for Biafra. (source: Wikipedia)
Uwazuruike's MASSOB gave birth to the likes of General Innocent Orji the leader of Biafra National Guard (BNG) and Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB. Nnamdi Kanu and General Innocent Orji were once members of MASSOB. With this one can argue that if Uwazuruike was made to face the full wrath of the law in 2005, there would have been nothing like IPOB or BNG today

One can also argue that if Nnamdi is not made to face the law, more like him will emerge tomorrow to threaten the peace and unity of this country.
