Femi Adesina has disclosed what ex-President Muhammadu Buhari told a delegation led by a First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, regarding the incarceration of Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.

Amaechi had led a delegation of Igbo leaders under the aegis of Highly-Respected Igbo Greats to visit Buhari and demand Kanu’s release toward the end of his tenure.

During the meeting, Amaechi had urged Buhari to order Kanu’s release to forestall insecurity in the Southeast.

However, Adesina, who served as Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Buhari, said the President informed the delegation that the request was extremely difficult due to the implications.

Quoting Buhari in his book, Adesina said: “You have made an extremely difficult demand on me as the leader of this country. The implication of your request is very serious.

“In the last six years, nobody will say I have confronted the judiciary. We are developing a country, and we have to go through the pains.

“The demand you have made is heavy, but I will consider it. I am glad to know you closely at this time.

“Please, accept my sympathy once again on the loss of your wife. May her soul rest in peace.”
