After he was arrested, the kidnapping didn't stop in the north; many students were kidnapped in Kaduna last week.  Where were our security agencies? Why can't they use the same temerity to arrest all those people doing this thing (killings)? Arresting Kanu will not solve the problem." "There is "herdsmenism," people have abandoned the villages, and there are no jobs. Peoples' farms are ravaged and they are kidnapped and killed. His arrest aggravates the problem. "Has anybody seen Kanu kill anyone? Kanu is not a murderer. Have you caught him with guns? Why arrest someone who has never kidnapped anyone? Our land must yield an increase. Kanu is not herdsmen, kidnappers, or bandits, or Boko Haram. He does not carry ammunition and he is not even an unknown gunman. My job is to say what the spirit asked me to say.
