Bight News – Few days after the gruesome killing of the immediate past Chief of Defense Staff, late Alex Badeh, the self-styled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has yesterday revealed details of a brief discussion he had with him (Alex Badeh), while in Kuje prison.
Daily Post reported today 23rd December 2018 That while speaking on the murder of Badeh during a special worldwide broadcast from Israel, Kanu alleged that the late Chief of Air Staff was murdered on the instructions of some persons in the government.
The IPOB leader, quoting a popular national newspaper copiously, said close associates of the late CDS claimed he (Badeh) met with Mrs Aisha Buhari recently to seek help with his corruption cases pending in court because it was taking huge emotional and financial toll on him.
But the wife of the president reportedly told him only Abba Kyari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, could help him so she took him to Mr Kyari who was non-committal. Afterwards, Kyari reportedly told Badeh to call him later. The late CDS did call back but never got a response.
Against that background, Kanu said Aisha Buhari’s reference to Abba Kyari as Badeh’s messiah only “confirms that President Buhari is not alive and Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani does whatever Mr. Kyari says. I told you ab initio that the main culprits in this (Badeh’s killing) are Abba Kyari and Mamman Daura,” he alleged.
On the rationale behind Badeh’s assassination, Kanu said: “Badeh died because he threatened Aisha Buhari and Abba Kyari with what he knew about Mr. Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani.”
The IPOB leader went further to say as reported by Daily Post, that during his discussion with Badeh while at Kuje prisons in Abuja, he told the late Air chief that Nigeria cannot work but he (Badeh) insisted that Nigeria will work.
His words: “I met Alex Badeh in Kuje or he met me in Kuje prison and we had a brief discussion. Those that were there know what I discussed with him.
“I told him Nigeria will never work, but he told me no, Nigeria will work, your senior brother is my friend. My senior brother is Air Marshal,” the IPOB leader said.
That Kanu added: “Alex Badeh is dead and nobody is investigating his death. Nobody is calling him a hero. Alex Badeh was brave.”
Recall that late Alex Badeh was gruesomely killed along the Abuja – Kaffi highway last week Tuesday, though he was provided with the full compliment of personal staff and security personnel commensurate with his status as a former Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), CDS and a 4-star general in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
However, as mentioned by the CAS, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, on 19 December 2018, the NAF said it’s working closely with other relevant security agencies to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of the former CDS with a view to ensuring that the perpetrators of the heinous act are brought to justice. Adding that a substantial progress has already been made in the ongoing investigation and details would be communicated at the appropriate time, as contained in a statement signed by Ibikunle Daramola, Air Commodore, Director of Public Relations & Information on the 20th of December, 2018.
