The Nigerian government says it has more pressing issues to tackle instead of talking about the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu who reappeared after the Operation Python Dance in Abia State in 2017, had threatened to unleash “hell” on Nigeria.
However, Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed has said that no serious government would feel threatened by such utterances.
Mohammed said Kanu’s issue is not something to “dwell too much on” as it may lead to the distraction of the government.
“This is the same man that was claimed to be held by the military and I remember at the height of this saga, some many people wanted to hold the federal government responsible for the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu,” he told AIT.
“I remember saying that the military did not kidnap him, he wasn’t killed. All these are just distractions frankly speaking.
“I don’t think it’s something we should dwell too much on. There are other pressing issues of the nation we should discuss.
“No government will waste too much energy or effort. I think the government will be making sure that the country is safe.”
