Like Jonathan used Tompolo, Tinubu can use Nnamdi Kanu to handle insecurity – Isaac Fayose

Isaac Fayose, brother of former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose, has proposed an answer to the continued insecurity in Nigeria’s South-East area.

In a video assertion on Monday by way of X, Fayose recommended that President Bola Tinubu might probably resolve the safety disaster by releasing and collaborating with the chief of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Drawing a parallel to former President Goodluck Jonathan’s method within the Niger Delta, Fayose acknowledged, “If President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan can give contract to Tompolo to have peace in the Niger Delta… why can’t we do the same in the South East?”

Government Ekpemupolo popularly often known as Tompolo is a former militant commander of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta and was reportedly engaged by the Jonathan administration to assist safe oil installations within the area.

Expressing his views, Fayose argued that releasing Kanu might probably scale back safety spending within the South East by half.

He stated, “If we are spending so much money on security in the south East, the money will be reduced by 50% releasing Kanu.”

Kanu, the chief and founding father of IPOB was arrested by the ex-president Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Fayose emphasised the potential for reconciliation stating, “At least me releasing Kanu can make some of them (south easterners) to say oh this man has a good intention.”

He recommended that Tinubu might method Kanu saying, “My son you know what I need your help to restore peace in the South East, I will give him all it takes.”
