Pro-Biafra group, Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has challenged the Nigerian Government to attempt to re-arrest its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The secessionist group made this known less than a day after a document of an appeal by Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, asking for the revocation of a court order that granted bail to Mr. Kanu was made available to the public.
The minister also advocated the re-arrest and detention of the IPOB leader pending the determination of the charges against him.
He said Kanu’s conducts have violated his bail conditions and as such the secessionist agitator should be arrested.
The IPOB leader has in furtherance to the offence he was charged, inaugurated Biafra Security Service adding that such an act was a grave threat to national security and unity of the country.
However, in reaction to the minister’s position, IPOB accused the Federal Government of playing politics, adding that Mr. Kanu could never be rearrested.
In a statement issued, the group also vowed that many tragic events would happen if Nigerian authorities ever rearrested the IPOB leader.
It read: “IPOB is not doing anything about the order of [the Federal Government] through the Attorney General to revoke [a] court order and arrest Nnamdi Kanu again. We are just watching and waiting to see what is going to happen and how it will happen.”
“Think about what his re-arrest would cause in Nigeria. The FG is just playing politics. They cannot arrest Nnamdi Kanu. This is not the first time they would be calling for his re-arrest. Nevertheless, a lot of people have written articles stating the tragic that will happen if he is rearrested.”
