The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has expressed regret for referring to President Muhammadu Buhari as a terrorist, evil and a paedophile in his radio broadcasts. Kanu, who has been charged along with two others by the Federal Government before a Federal High Court in Abuja on six counts of treason and other ancillary offences, said he intended to write a private letter to Buhari to express his apology to the President.
He also apologised to former President Goodluck Jonathan and Igbo elders for "some uncomplimentary things" he said about them. Kanu who is, however, unapologetic about his demand for a Republic of Biafra, tendered the apology for his comment against Buhari and others in a statement which he made to the DSS on October 23. The IPOB leader said IPOB’s secessionist agenda was informed by the “incessant hardship, lack of holistic development in the socio-economic landscape of Nigeria, lack of youth employment, corruption in high offices and economic regression.”
