I was explicit when i discussed the title "BEFORE KANU IS TORTURED TO DEATH" i took advantage of the torture that was visible all over him in his last public appearance in the court. Kanu is a strong hearted man, but he might have been broken as a result of prohibited torture and fallen ill. Denied his doctor and any form of care, continued detention and torture might actually cause his death.
No court order is holding Kanu and as a matter of fact, Buhari is personally holding the leader of over 38million people. Buhari, Biafrans and Nigerians down to those Nigerians that rant everyday on social media for Buhari to murder Kanu for them, nobody might live to tell the story of untold aggression.With a man that can command over 38million people without money, there is every reason to fear nor treat such man with caution. Kanu is held for broadcasting radio Biafra, for possession of dual passport and then for demanding Biafra within the ambit of law. The magistrate court and high court had both discharged all charges against Kanu and ordered for his immediate unconditional release in a dictator-like manner, Buhari flouted the orders.
I can understand why Kanu is being persecuted, illegally detained and tortured. Nigeria as a country do not understand the language of civilization, dialogue and peace. Nigerian government is begging and looking for Boko haram for dialogue, had Nnamdi Kanu chosen arms, he would be pleaded and lobbied for dialogue. The consequences of his death for lawfully agitating for Biafra will be overwhelming that had we known would be the case afterwards. Biafrans are not terrorists neither are they thoughtless Almajiris, Biafrans are freedom fighters that will stand incursion after the armed forces of Nigeria had been sent packing. As a result of Nnamdi Kanu, the fiercest aggressive war unknown to mankind shall be launched. Nigerians shall die, Biafrans shall die but in the end Biafra shall live as independent state. Let me categorically state here, the death of Nnamdi Kanu is an express-way to Biafra restoration, his death will spark the existence of Biafra but such existence will be a threat to his murders and everything within them. Biafrans love Biafra but love Nnamdi Kanu's Biafra more.
Nnamdi Kanu's death will be a deprivation Biafrans cannot live with and at all time his murder shall be avenged. The deteriorated health of Nnamdi Kanu needs urgent attention, Buhari must understand that he is personally holding Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans shall take it seriously personal even as Nigeria will entirely pay should anything go wrong. The slow movement of a tiger might have been misinterpreted as cowardice and so the resolve of Biafrans to be civilized should not be taken for granted. All Biafrans want is the law to decide the fate of their leader and not a man to decide the fate of their leader. In 1966 this same Buhari with his brothers killed over 37 Biafran sons in what they described as coup. His brothers staged pogroms that cost thousands of Biafran lives.
In 1967 this same Buhari commanded soldiers into owerri that killed millions of Biafrans. It is important for Buhari to know that enough is enough and the murder of this one (Nnamdi Kanu) or his imprisonment will he and Nigerians pay for the millions of Biafran lives he has murdered. This class of Biafrans is the class that did not see the 1967 genocide, born after the war of extermination and they heard all that was done to their fathers. There is hunger for vengeance and they are fearless and have learnt from the mistakes and failure of their fathers. 2015 is not 1967, the world has moved on and Biafrans scattered all over the world. Before Nnamdi Kanu loses his life, let him be released and taken to hospital and let DSS cease torturing an innocent man.
