The Nigerian Government has replied to those calling for a fair trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Nnamdi Kanu was rearrested by the Nigerian Government during the week and has been detained at the Department of State Service, DSS.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, promised that the IPOB leader will receive a fair deal of what he denied victims of the violence he allegedly caused in the South East.
According to him, “It is interesting that many are suddenly calling for a fair trial for Kanu as if he didn’t get one before he decided to jump bail and flee.
However, I can assure you that the fair deal that Kanu denied many of the victims of the violence which he willfully instigated through his broadcasts and tweets will not be denied him.
“Finally, there have been speculations on how this re-arrest was pulled off and in which country the hitherto fugitive leader of the proscribed IPOB was nabbed.
What we can tell you, once again, is that the re-arrest was made possible by the diligent efforts of our security and intelligence agencies, in collaboration with countries with which we have obligations. We continue to respect and honour the obligations.”
