Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Blasts Buhari Govt Over Enugu Airport


Biafra: Ejimakor Unveils 3 Debts President Buhari Owes Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has berated the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari over plan to shut down the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu over alleged congestion of shops.

Naija News recalls that the Federal Government announced plans to shut down the Akanu Ibiam International Airport due to security reasons.

The minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, who made the announcement on Friday, stressed that the reasons for the closure include bad runway, proximity to a market and the wrong location of the state radio mast.

Apparently displeased with the development, Kanu took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, where he wondered why the government did not consider shutting down “airports in the far North, especially Maiduguri, Yola” over the ongoing insurgency in the region.

Kanu wrote: The present and imminent danger posed to civil aviation by Boko Haram & Fulani terror never led to a consideration of shutting down any of the airports in the far North, especially Maiduguri, Yola, etc. But a nearby market is enough to shut down Enugu airport. #IPOB is alert.”

Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
