How can a country who is owing almost every country including Ghana be able to pay 1billion to Mazi Nnamdi KANU? Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is innocent. Nigeria committed the crime of extraordinary rendition and must release him unconditionally. Amaka_Ekwo Choi!!! I no buy I no sell no be wahala na peace the people are speaking government should listen to the people conduct a referendum for peace to rain 🌧️🌧️🌧️👉🥴😁🙉

Why not put the Court’s name in the headline? Very clear your motive is sensationalization. My leader is guiltless.. He is innocent and free Buhari to get extra loan to pay Nnamdi Kanu ₦1b. I wish the court could know how Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB have wantonly trampled on the rights of ndi-Igbo with impunity. Their sit-at-home order is illegal, & the enforcement even more illegal & criminal. Many Igbos have been wantonly killed &/or their properties destroyed or burnt.
