In last night's media chat, President Buhari revealed why the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and leader of the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu have not been  released, in spite of court orders.

Buhari said that those responsible for serious offences against the county cannot be granted temporary freedom because they could take advantage of it and jump bail. In other words, the president claimed that the severity of their crimes did not permit their release.

Referring to Sambo Dasuki, the president said: “Technically if you see the kinds of atrocities those people committed against the country. If they jump bail, see the former President wrote to the governor of central bank and said give N40bn to so so and so, and then he gives account and you release him to go and see his doctors in London, while about 2 million IDPs who don’t even know their parents; what kind of country is that?

And the one you are calling Kanu, do you know he had two passports, one Nigerian, one British, and he came into the country without any. Do you know he brought an equipment into this country and was broadcasting, Radio Biafra; which kind of government do you think should harbor that kind of person? There is a treasonable felony against him and and I hope the court will listen to the case.”

Mr President promised to prosecute and jail the looters and recover government fund.
