“If he’s allowed to go, he (Kanu) will come out boasting that he didn’t beg to be launched. He’s not remorseful and there’s nothing to point out he regrets his actions, and anyone can do such and get away with it; we’re not in Banana Republic for God’s sake.”

“The legislation should take its full course and I hope it’s not what I’m considering as a result of no person has completed the sort of injury this man has completed to this nation; and up until date, now we have not recovered from the results of what he has completed to this nation, we’re watching.


“If we permit him to go unpunished, then we’re saying that the nation ought to produce tens of millions of him. With him alone, have a look at the injury he has completed to his area, however for us within the North, we might guarantee he has no sympathizer.

“No one is saying he must be handled with out committing any crime, but when he’s discovered wanting; then he must be made to face the results of his actions for the reason that matter is in courtroom,” he added.
