Omokri stated this in a alive Facebook video on Wednesday.
He said until Buhari arrested Kanu, he was “a nobody”.
The former presidential aide also said if Buhari had equitably distributed his appointments, he “would have just won the hearts and minds of people from the south-east”.
“President Muhammadu Buhari actually created this mess, did you know who Nnamdi Kanu was before President Muhammadu Buhari had him arrested? He was a nobody and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful manner, you IPOB people you are very good with the media. Don’t come after me I don’t mean that in a bad way.
“Until he was arrested by Muhammadu Buhari he was a nobody, the president actually created Nnamdi Kanu, made him a celebrity and gave him the power he has right now.
“Right now you have empowered the young man to do a lot more damage to you, what was he doing? Radio Biafra? How many people were listening?
“I was watching somewhere and a Turkish diplomat had actually gone to pay Nnamdi Kanu’s house to pay a courtesy visit to him. That is how big you have made him", he said.
