Junaid Mohammed, Second Republic lawmaker, criticized Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for declaring his intention to return to Nigeria and continue his trial.
Mohammed said Kanu should “go to hell and burn to ashes” for trying to return to Nigeria after being bailed out.
Kanu had recently expressed his willingness to return to Nigeria and continue his trial only if his security was guaranteed by a federal high court in Abuja.
However, Mohammed rejected the call of the IPOB leader and urged the federal government to ignore the conditions provided by Kanu.
Speaking with Independent, the former lawmaker insisted that the IPOB leader committed a crime by jumping on bail.
Mohammed pointed out that Kanu had no right to give the federal government any conditions for his return to the county to face trial.
He said: “First and foremost, who is he? What is IPOB itself? One, he jumped bail which is a criminal offence. Now he is saying his mother is dead and he must be allowed to come home.
“He is now giving the federal government conditions for him to return to the country. Let him burn to ashes and go to hell.
“I don’t know why the media is giving unnecessary coverage and attention to scoundrels who are just agitators whipping up sentiments to destabilise the country.”
