The federal government has been daredby pro-Biafra group, Indigenous PeoplesOf Biafra (IPOB), to attempt a re-arrest of its leader Nnamdi Kanu.
According to Sahara Reporters, IPOB brazenly stated that the federal government can never arrest Kanu, while accusing the Buhari administration of playing politics.
The group’s challenge comes on the heels of an appeal filed by the Attorney General andMinister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, asking a court to revoke its earlier order granting bail to the IPOB leader.
Citing the fact that Kanu had flouted hisbail conditions, Malami advocated for his re-arrest and detention, pending trial.
The group stated:“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 things that will happen if he is rearrested.”
Recall that we previously reported that the Nigerian government asked the court to order there-arrest and detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement released by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, the government demanded thatKanu be arrested again for flouting his bail conditions.
