Reading Time: < 1 minute

The pro-seccessionist IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has been re-arrested in Europe by Nigeria through international collaborative efforts (Interpol), and face pending treasonable felony charges including allegations of terrorism, money laundering, treason, etc preferred against him at the Federal High Court in Abuja. 

The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, revealed that the Nigerian Security Intelligence Agency intercepted the separatist leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Kanu.



Kanu has been taken to court already as Justice Binta Nyako has ordered that Kanu should be detained until July 26, 2021 for continuation of trial.

Kanu’s rearrest, being a British citizen, has polarised opinions in Nigeria. Opinions are that he was kidnapped. Others have it that his arrest is a product of international collaboration.



Another issue sparked by the IPOB’s leader arrest is that the present Federal Government of Nigeria has all it takes to address the unpatriotic rantings of Sheikh Gumi, terminate banditry and resolve the Boko Haram/ISWAP menace in the country. That they have not done it is perceived to be a deliberate on the part of President Muhammadu Buhari and his handlers.
