Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu on the run: Nigeria Army

Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu on the run: Nigeria Army

Nigeria

Nigerian military officials say the leader of Nigeria’s secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is currently on the run.

He reportedly went into hiding after the military declared IPOB as a terrorist organisation.

His whereabouts became unknown since the South East Governors Forum declared the activities of his group as proscribed.

The federal government also filed a suit before the Abuja Federal High Court seeking the revocation of the bail granted to Mr Kanu, who is standing treason trial along with three other people.

Some sources hint that that Kanu might have gone underground and security officials are contemplating about following the legal process by holding his sureties responsible.
