Biafra: Presidency breaks silence on Nnamdi Kanu’s reappearance

The Presidency on Monday said the reappearance of the leader of the
Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has vindicated the
Nigerian government.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and
Publicity, Garba Shehu, in an interview with BBC Hausa Service, said the
Nigerian government has been vindicated of accusations of assassinating
or kidnapping Kanu.

Kanu was last seen in September 2017 when military men invaded his residence in Afaraukwu in Abia State.

Following his disappearance, the Nigerian government was accused of kidnapping and even killing the IPOB leader.

However, the IPOB leader last week resurfaced in Jerusalem where he was seen praying.

Reacting to Kanu’s reappearance, Shehu asserted that Kanu’s trial will definitely continue.

He said, “If it happens to be true, the video footage showing Mr Nnamdi
Kanu; the truth has been revealed about his alleged assassination
against Nigerian government.

“This fairy tale went up to United Nations General Assembly where some
IPOB members staged a protest accusing Nigeria government of kidnapping
and even killing of Mr. Kanu.”

Shehu also stated that with the re-appearance of Kanu, “people will know
who lied between the government and those that made accusations.”
