Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been arrested and extradited to Nigeria to face trial.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami(SAN), announced this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, June 29.

He revealed that Kanu was arrested and brought back to Nigeria on Sunday, June 27. He said the arrest followed a collaborative effort between security agencies in Nigeria and the Interpol.

Malami further disclosed that Kanu would be taken before the Federal High Court in Abuja for continuation of his trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

The IPOB leader had fled the country after a Federal High Court in Abuja granted him bail in 2017.

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has opened up on why he escaped out of the country in spite of the criminal charges of terrorism and treasonable felony slammed against him by the Federal Government.

Speaking before a Federal High Court in Abuja, on Tuesday, June 29, Kanu said that his house was invaded by security men with his life seriously threatened.

The self-acclaimed Biafran leader further stated that he would have been killed along with others on the day of the invasion if not for the wisdom he applied to escape out of the country.

Kanu said this, after the Federal Government through its counsel, Shuaib Labaran, said that he ran out of the country thereby jumping the bail granted him by the court to escape trial.
