Adamu Garba: No difference between Kanu, Igboho, Shekau

Adamu Garba: gives a solution to the herdsmen crisis
Adamu Garba

Former Presidential Aspirant, Adamu Garba, says there is no difference between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu; popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemi well known as Sunday Igboho; and leader of Boko Haram terror group, Abubakar Shekau.

“There is practically no difference between Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho and Abubakar Shekau except that Shekau started much earlier than the rest two. Plain and simple,” Garba wrote on Twitter.

Tweeps, however, disagreed with Garba.

@DavidChia20 exclaimed, “What a docile comparison! You know they are incomparable. The later (Shekau) is a serial killer, while the rest are just clamouring for freedom from their oppressors.”

“Nnamdi Kani doesn’t kill anyone in the East and Sunday Igboho hasn’t also. Can you say the same about Shekau?” @amtgbanks asked.

“Has Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho abducted any Nigerian citizen?” @OfokansiH queried.

Reacting to questions raised by his comment, Adamu Garba stated that: “Nnamdi Kanu ordered killings & destruction. But he is an agitator & should be left alone.

“Sunday Igboho ordered killings & destruction. But he is a freedom fighter & should be celebrated.

“Yet Fulani should be condemned as a terrorist!”

Another commentator, however, asked Adanu Garba about Sheikh Gumi.

“You have forgotten to mention Sheikh Gumi who is the comptroller general for Banditry and yet to be arrested,” Manjay @jinadu_lekan stated.

The ex-presidential aspirant, replied that he initially supported the style of famous Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who had been seen hobnobbing with bandits in the forests of Zamfara and Niger State of late.

“I like Sheikh Gumi’s initial approach I was in supported of him. However, it turned out he’s very critical of government while seeking for peace. This is contradictory. As a peace negotiator, he should seek level playing field than outright condemnation of one against the other,” he noted.


  1. Adamu Garuba is very stupid to ever contemplate such comparisons. If he can compare Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday igboho and his Terrorist brother, then he should also not forget Muhammad Buhari who incited so many killings during his campaigns in 2011 and 2015 respectively. A man who swore to make Nigeria ungovernable for Goodluck Jonathan and immediately GEJ was sworn in as the president of Nigeria, boko haram emerged from the blues and has continued to terrorise northern Nigeria, giving birth to other terrorist groups like fulani herdsmen and the bandits. So if Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are terrorists, then Muhammad Buhari is also a terrorist.

  2. No sane person can ever compare the three people because it’s their motives that can determine whether or not they are criminals as been alluded here.
    Kanu’s people, the Igbos have been marginalized in a supposed country that ordinarily should be fair to all the federating tribes
    Adeyemo’s tribe, the Yorubas are continuously been kidnapped and decimated by the Fulani herdsmen who are officially allowed to carry AK-47 around while the Yorubas are not. Adeyemo decided to resist this humiliation.
    Shekau is a blood-sucker fighting of a religious war of supremacy.
    And so, where is the basis for comparison here?
    Any southerner who begs the north to bring cows for sale in the south should be mad. He or she should have his/her head examined immediately.

  3. We knew it that the North created Boko Haram and Shekau is their own just like NDIGBO and Yoruba can proudly claim NNAMDI KANU and Sunday Igboho. But the difference is that the world doesn’t see the three from your perspective. NNAMDI KANU and Sunday Igboho are freedom fighters while your Shekau is the most wanted terrorist in the world right now. Where does that pit you and your Northern Nigeria region? A region that is home to three most dangerous terrorists groups in the world. Shame on you. Call NNAMDI KANU and Sunday Igboho whatever names you like the point is that Igbos and Yorubas seem to have woken up to tell the North pointedly that the unholy marriage fabricated by the British is over. NDIGBO and Yoruba are saying in unison that BIAFRA and ODUDUWA Republics are theirs so go with your hero Shekau and his Boko Haram Republic. Bye.
