Nnamdi Kanu Will Work With Us To Defeat Buhari – Fani-Kayode
A former Minister of Aviation and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, says the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, called him and discussed a few things with him.
He said Mr Kanu agreed to work with him and other members of the PDP to vote President Muhammadu Buhari out by 2019.
Mr Fani-Kayode shared the information on his Twitter page on Saturday.
According to him, Mr Kanu called him from where he was and gave the assurance.
"I just received a call from my brother Nnamdi Kanu. I am delighted that he is alive and well. I commend his strength and courage even as I marvel at the loyalty, resilience and commitment of his lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out," he tweeted.
Mr Fani-Kayode and the leader of IPOB had developed a relationship when they were both detained by the Federal Government over allegations of corruption and felony respectively.
Mr Kanu had disappeared after the military launched an operation - Python Dance - in the south east meant to contain cessation agitations, kidnapping issues and other forms of criminal activities.
He resurfaced a few days ago in Jerusalem.
Mr Fani-Kayode had in July 2018 said Kanu was kept on a naval warship far off the coast of Bayelsa and accused Buhari of wanting to keep him there until 2019.
"Intelligence reports suggest that my friend and brother Nnamdi Kanu is being kept on a Nigerian naval warship far off the coast of Bayelsa and that Buhari intends to keep him there until 2019 and then drop him in the Atantic ocean after “winning” the February election" he tweeted at that time. ’
