Kanu's Lawyer Confirmed Apology to Buhari

Lawyer to Biafra leader, Kanu has confirmed apology to Buhari

Obetta noted ‘there is nothing irregular’ about the Kanu’s apology over his ‘uncomplimentary’ comments.

The Punch reported that the lawyer explained that what he denied on behalf of his client was speculation that the leader of IPOB had written letters of apology to Buhari, Jonathan and Igbo elders.


He further confirmed that Kanu tendered the apology in his statement to the Department of State Service when he realized that some of the things he had said against Buhari and others were uncomplimentary considering African society culture of respect to elders.

Kanu’s counsel said: “I denied the ruse making the rounds that my client apologised via a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, former President Goodluck Jonathan and some Igbo elders.

“I also challenged any reporter to forward to me a copy of the written letter addressed to the President et al. I still maintain my ground that my client Mazi Nnamdi Kanu did not address any letter of apology whatsoever to Buhari, Jonathan and Igbo elders.


“However, I am aware that in the course of making his statements to the SSS (DSS), he acknowledged the fact that certain words he used on these persons/elders during his broadcast were ‘uncomplimentary’ considering the culture and values of the African society to which he belongs.

“He further stated that he might write a letter of apology to the President to express his regret over the use of such words on him. But up until this moment, such letter, to my knowledge, has not been written. And I challenge anybody that has a copy of such to make it public.”


This disclosure was made by the managing director, Johan Jemdahl, in a signed statement. Jemdahl explained that the transmitter had been confiscated and the authorities had been informed.
