Breaking: Nnamdi Kanu arrested, extradited to Nigeria

Nnamdi Kanu

According to The Cable, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has been extradited to Nigeria to face treason trial.

The details were still unclear at the time of writing, with no information of when and where he was arrested.

Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman, denied the news of the arrest while Frank Mba, police spokesman, is yet to respond to TheCable’s enquiry on whether the police was involved in the development.

Kanu is facing charges bordering 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 granted bail in April 2017 for health reasons but skipped bail after flouting some of the conditions given to him by the court.

He has also been on the run since then after soldiers raided his father’s residence in Abia state.
