He noted that it was absurd for Kanu to have money to buy equipment for radio stations thereby putting the lives of Igbos at risk.
He said: ''Buhari missed it immediately he won and the whole world was giving him the accolade. The money stolen during the PDP time was so much.
''The money in the hands of individual is so much and you do not expect them to just fold their hands at the rate President Mohammadu Buhari is going, looking at his antecedents, looking at his records, he wants to set up special court to be trying corruption.
''What you are seeing right now is corruption fighting back, nothing more, nothing less. It just that we are a country of very many unserious people. This thing could have been tackled in a way that nobody would even know that such a thing happened.
''We made Nnamdi Kanu important. A 36 years old boy who never saw the Civil War. I saw war. I know what war is and I am sure none of you here saw war.

''When you see war, mother will deny her child, father will be running to different direction while the children will be running to different direction.
''You people do not know what is called war. Children like Kanu and his cohorts are talking rubbish because people are pumping money to them, even people that are supposed to be enlightened.
''All these agitations here and there, they are being sponsored and stage managed to distract the APC federal government led by President Mohammadu Buhari of getting to where he wants to get Nigeria to''.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that president sent northern governors to the southeast in a bid to secure peace after riots broke out in Abia state over deployment of the military to the area.
