Real Reason IPOB Leader Kanu Has Remained In Detention – FG Reveals


The Federal Government, yesterday, told a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, why it was not in a hurry to release the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, as it claimed that its investigations revealed that Kanu, who is seen as the brain behind recent clamour for the creation of ‘Biafra Republic’, had already received huge sums of money to purchase weapons.

In a counter-affidavit before the court, the FG said that prior to his arrest, Kanu, had already made enquiries about prices of all the weapons he intends to buy. A senior officer with the Department of State Services, DSS, Mr. Ayo Ibitoye, insisted that it would be in the interest of justice, peace and order, to allow the IPOB leader to remain in custody of the security agency.

Kanu, who is also the Director of Radio Biafra and Television, was on October 17, arrested in Lagos by security operatives, shortly after he arrived Nigeria from his base in the United Kingdom.

He was later arraigned before a Chief Magistrate Court in Abuja over allegation that he engaged in criminal conspiracy, managed and belonged to an unlawful society. He pleaded not guilty to the charge on October 19 and was granted bail in the tune of N2 million and a civil servant of Grade Level 16, to stand as his surety.

However, the DSS has failed to release him from detention despite the fact that he had met the bail conditions.

While the matter was pending before the Magistrate court, FG had secured an order from the high court to further detain Kanu for 90 days.

Following an application by Kanu before the high court, seeking to enforcing his fundamental right to freedom, government filed a counter-affidavit, explaining why he will not been released, despite the clear orders of the court.


  1. He met all the bail conditions and they are still keeping him in detention. The FG ve to face a criminal charge for infringing the right of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra. Now the FG is taking human right law into her hand she should also knw dat if justice is not done on the illegal detention of our leader, we the IPOB would cause a total break down of law and order in this country. FG must face ICC for this inhuman and foolish act and Biafra must emerge even if u detend Nnamdi Kanu forever. Biafra is an ideology that no man can defeat so FG shouldnt think that detening or even killing Nnamdi would stop Biafra rather, it makes us even more stronger, radical, fearless, brave and even more resolute than 1967-1970. Is beter they let him go now or face the wrath of our anger at the appointed time!

  2. @Eke what the hell are you waiting for. Bring out all your families to cause breakdown of law and order and see weather ur generation will exist again. Facebook warrior.
