Nnamdi Kanu: Buhari was a tyrant, dictator – Adeyanju

An activist, Deji Adeyanju, on Wednesday said surviving the Muhammadu Buhari administration was tough because the ex-President was a tyrant.

Reacting to the claims by Buhari’s former spokesman, Femi Adesina, that the immediate past administration attempted to eliminate Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Adeyanju described the former President as a dictator.

In his book, ‘Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023)’, Adesina said Buhari opted for Kanu’s arrest while some government officials opted for his elimination.

Reacting to the matter, Adeyanju recounted how he was arrested 11 times during Buhari’s administration.

Posting on X, Adeyanju wrote: “So Buhari contemplated killing Nnamdi Kanu? We will know how many times they tried to kill some of us one day before sending us to prison several times.

“But Buhari got me arrested 11 times during his 8 years term. They opened fire at us when I led a protest to DSS headquarters at Unity Fountain several times as well. Attacked me at Human Rights Commission, etc. History will always vindicate the just. Buhari the dictator is gone.

“It was not easy surviving Tyrant Buhari regime. On many occasions, we were almost killed at protest venues but many #EndSARS protestors were not so lucky. It was just God that saved some of us from losing our lives. We will never allow cretins like Adesina to rewrite history.”
