The Nigerian government Thursday directed those asking for the whereabouts of leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, to go to those who signed Kanu’s bail in April.
Garba Shehu, President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity was quoted by DAILY POST to have made the remark.
Shehu was quoted to have said “I am surprised someone would ask this question. Look, some people went to court and obtained his freedom, they signed his bail.
“I believe that a high profile group including a Senator of the Federal Republic signed in a court of law and obtained his freedom. So, if you are looking for him, why don’t you ask the people who bailed him?
“Nobody has informed me that Mr Kanu is in the hands of any institution of government. But if I was looking for him,
I would ask the guy who bailed him because that is the deal he has with the court of the land.”
Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had been speaking on behalf of his client since his Umuahia home was raided by soldiers in its Operation Python Dance II exercise.
The IPOB leader was granted bail by the Federal High Court on April 25 and Senator representing Abia South senatorial district, Enyinnaya Abaribe had signed the bail bond which helped Kanu’s release.
