It was learnt that he disclosed this in reaction to the protest that was staged by some northern youths calling for his rearrest on Wednesday, August 9.

He said: ''But why will I be re-arrested and nobody is going to arrest Tanko Yakassai or Ango Abdulahi because of what they have been saying?

''Is it because they are Fulani? They own Nigeria? They are immuned to arrest? Is arrest only meant for Biafrans and not for Fulani?.

''Who will arrest Lawal Daura of DSS for flouting court order to release Bright Chimezie Isinwa of IPOB? The Fulanis say whatever they like and go free and nobody holds them accountable because they own Nigeria''.

According to him: ''I go to anywhere I want to go. I don’t listen to threats. They motivate me rather than dampen my spirit.

''That thing people say I cannot do is what I love to do. When the time comes, I will go to Lagos if I have to go to Lagos.

''I completely disagree with them. They are the pioneers of hate speech. Go through the text of speeches made by Ango Abdulahim, Tanko Yakassia or the ones made by one Abubarkar.

''Are those ones not hate speeches? Unfortunately, I blame the deplorable state of education in Nigeria because they don’t know what hate speech is all about''.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Arewa Youth Assembly on Wednesday, August 9 held a protest to demand for the arrest of Kanu over the unity of Nigeria.

The group who took to the streets under police watch said unity of the country was non-negotiable.
