Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria to face his trial, Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has said.
At a joint press briefing on Tuesday with the State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja, Malami disclosed that international collaborative efforts with security agencies led to Kanu’s arrest and repatriation to Nigeria.
Kanu and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Kanu fled the country in September 2017 after an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State.
The Federal government obtained a court order on September 20, 2017, to designate IPOB a terrorist group and to proscribe it.
The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
He was produced in court on Tuesday by the operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS).
Kanu, who was brought to the court amidst tight security, arrived at the court at about 1:40pm.
