Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, in a surprising twist, has tendered an apology  to President Buhari, ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and Igbo leaders.

He said he regretted calling Buhari a paedophile and terrorist.

He also apologised to Jonathan for the rude comments he made against him and other Igbo leaders,

Punch Newspapers reports that Kanu, in a statement made available to the Department of State Services (DSS), said he was rude to his elders.

He said “Reference to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a terrorist, evil and a paedophile is regrettable and uncalled for and for that, I unreservedly apologise and will be doing so in a private letter to the President.

“Before PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) there was the administration of Goodluck Jonathan. I also said uncomplimentary things about him and Igbo elders as well, which I now recognise should not have happened because it is un-African to be rude or insolent to elders.”

Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) in his hotel room.
