Nnamdi Kanu Reacts To Closure Of Nigerian Borders, Blasts Buhari

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to a government decision on the closure of Nigeria’s borders.

Kanu who berated the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Hameed Ali, stated that Nigeria was disrespecting the Economic Community of West African State, ECOWAS, treaty which it’s a signatory to.

Recall that Ali had explained that the country’s borders were closed to checkmate three issues; importation of arms and ammunition, smuggling and human trafficking, adding that the borders will remain closed until border countries agree with Nigeria’s terms.

He said since other neighbouring countries are not helping Nigeria in solving her problems, the country must find a way to protect its citizens.

He said “If neighbouring countries are making income through taxation of smuggled goods to our country, we will continue to shut down our borders until they agreed and signed all the protocol documents that will allow for the relaxation of the borders.” 

However, Kanu In a tweet faulted Ali’s comment, he wrote: “Hamid Ali’s declaration (in defence of the border closure) that national security trumps human rights underscore Nigeria’s institutional disrespect for Rule of Law. From breaking its own laws, it’s now breaching its Treaty obligations. As the Zoo turns rogue, Biafra beckons.”
