Kanu, who was caught in Kenya in June this year, had escaped Nigeria in 2017, bouncing bail after his Afaraukwu home in Abia State was attacked by officers.
The IPOB pioneer is being pursued for conspiracy.
Buhari had as of late said he would consider the interest of Igbo pioneers for Kanu’s delivery.
Yakasai said Kanu ought not be conceded acquittal having announced conflict on Nigeria and prompted the killings of numerous security agents.
He said assuming that he were Buhari, he would not absolve the secessionist gathering’s chief,
Yakasai said: “Buhari is the president, he has the ability to excuse and exculpate whoever he wishes. I won’t prevent him from doing that (exculpating Kanu), I don’t have the ability to stop him, however I would not do it in case I were him.
“I would not excuse or excuse someone who proclaimed conflict against this country.
“I’m a serious patriot, I battled for this country, I went to jail ordinarily for this nation… What commitment did Nnamdi Kanu do to Nigeria or even to Igbo individuals? He didn’t bring Biafra, he met Biafra, he was youthful at the time Biafra was announced. Thus, it is up to President Buhari, he is the leader of this country”.
As indicated by Yakasai, individuals Nnamdi Kanu detests the most are northerners, the Hausa-Fulani specifically.
“I’m not Fulani, but rather I’m Hausa. Thus, I have no ability to prevent Buhari from exonerating Nnamdi Kanu, it is his ability to do it, yet I’ll not help it”, Yakassai said.
For IBM Haruna, delivering without preliminary is likened to undermining the sacred arrangement of the job of the legal executive.
He said: “It’s demoralizing that the law isn’t applied similarly to all. See this occasion: as an officer who battled war, ensuing to the conflict, we had upset creators, they were attempted and they were shot.
“Be that as it may, today, episodes and quick battling to treachery are being messed about as a political game to squander others’ lives. Kanu is a model. Is it not exceptionally current?
“The (Igbo) pioneers are asking that he ought to be delivered without a preliminary and undermining the sacred arrangement of the job of the legal executive as it should be in the leader.”
On Buhari’s promise to consider Kanu’s delivery, IBM Haruna said: “Indeed, he’s the president. He’s a lawmaker.
“I’ll possibly caution that assuming he doesn’t do the right things, where we have the difficulties of injustice, we’ll return to the encounters we had in 1966 which prompted common conflict, loss of lives, wastage of financial powers.
“Eventually, we needed to return and proceed with the game which these individuals need to re-establish now. It’s extremely disillusioning.”
He depicted the contention that exonerating Kanu and different secessionists is a method of rejoining the country and tending to the supposed Igbo minimization as an off-base discernment, saying “we can’t proceed with that way. What individuals will need is to have to an ever increasing extent.
“While, assuming that we stood stringently by the law, rigorously by the principal interest and track for government assistance of the country, it would not emerge. These things keep on emerging on the grounds that legislatures like either the power or the appropriate utilization of the stick way to deal with assembly individuals around the basics of developing and fostering our country state.
“The motivation behind why some unacceptable solutions are made is on the grounds that the administration has been accused. First and foremost and likely, they’re foolhardy to brace their position which they accept that maybe they didn’t justify.”
