IPOB: FG Arrests Nnamdi Kanu

It has been reported that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has been arrested and brought to Nigeria.

This was reportedly confirmed by Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation, and Minister of Justice, at a press briefing on Tuesday.

He made it known that, Kanu was “intercepted” on Sunday, but he did not disclose the location.

According to reports, Kanu is facing charges centred on treasonable felony instituted against him at the federal high court in Abuja in response to years of campaign for the independent Republic of Biafra through IPOB.

He was  earlier arrested and was granted bail in 2017 due to health issues, and he has remained abroad, and once said he jumped bail to pursue the cause of Biafra.

Kanu earlier disclosed in a broadcast.

“Their problem is Nnamdi Kanu and the solution to their problem is referendum. They gave me conditional bail to cage me and IPOB but I refused.”

According to further reports, Kanu was asked to appear in court, but he refused. Due to this, Binta Nyako, the judge who granted him bail, revoked it and ordered that he should be arrested.

Kanu, reportedly dismissed the arrest warrant issued against him and vowed to remain abroad to continue agitating for Biafra.

In one of his broadcasts, he disclosed.

“The bench warrant against me is merely academic. It will surely be ignored by an international legal and diplomatic order that has voiced its disapproval of what is happening to IPOB in Nigeria.”
