Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu is not in government’s custody - Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has refuted the claims that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, is in government custody.

The minister however said that Nnamdi Kanu could be on the run or in a hiding place in order to dodge arrest and prosecution.

The minister affirmed that, “He is not being held by government at all.”

The secession ring leader has not been seen in public for over a week after the military allegedly invaded his father’s home in Umauahia, Abia state capital, during military’s Operation Python Dance II

His diehard supporters claim that he has been abducted by the government just as his pro-Biafra group was branded a terrorist organisation by the government.

Meanwhile, his brother named Emmanuel has challenged the government to tell Nigerian military to release the corpse of his brother, Nnamdi Kanu, if they have killed him during their operations. Report says he has not shown up to the public since the military raided his house in Umuahia, Abia state.
