2 Major Offences Buhari Said Igboho And Nnamdi Kanu Committed During His Independence Day Speech

It is no longer news that president Muhammadu Buhari had on Friday morning, addressed the entire nation to mark the Nation's 61st year of independence from British rule.

Buhari who appeared concerned during his speech, talked about a lot of issues affecting the country ranging from the challenges of Insecurity down to the agitations for secession from separatist groups led by embattled Activists, Sunday Igboho (Oduduwa Republic) and Nnamdi Kanu (Biafran nation).

During his speech, President Muhammadu Buhari highlighted two major offences which the duo committed while agitating for secession with their respective groups.

This article will take a look at these offences and the likely impact it may have on their respective trials.

Firstly, president Muhammadu Buhari accused Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu of planting the seeds of violence in the heads of their people through their words. And by extension, causing the deaths of many innocent Nigerians as well as the destruction of their properties.

Secondly, president Muhammadu Buhari accused the duo of abandoning their national leadership positions for their selfish gains. And instead of preaching unity, they misled and funded the youths to carry out criminal activities that has led to the loss of lives of Nigerians as well as the destruction of their properties. After which they ran away leaving them behind to cause harvoc.

These offences Buhari accused the duo of committing may not be far from the truth. Although Sunday Igboho never at any point in time incited his followers to commit any criminal activities in the South West, Nnamdi Kanu is as guilty as charged.

Not only did the embattled Activist incited his followers to cause harvoc, his group has been alleged to be behind the various destructions in the South East. Although the truth is yet to be established, these offences may go a long way to affect the outcome of their trials in court.
