Biafra: Nigerian Army opens up on Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts



-Nnamdi Kanu’s followers are in a “one-chance vehicle”

Brig. Gen. Sani Usman

Relatives of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu are aware of Kanu’s hideout, the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, has insisted.

Usman called on Nigerians to question Kanu’s younger brother and legal adviser, Ifeanyi Ejiofor of Kanu’s location, while emphasising that the IPOB leader is not in the Nigerian Army custody.

The Director asserted that the IPOB leader is one without a means of living, but used “propaganda” to gain the sympathy of the public. He added that followers of Kanu were in a “one-chance vehicle.”

He made the disclosure in Abuja, while bringing to a close, a two-day media conference on the military’s improvement of human rights.

According to Usman, “There was an allegation that somebody (Kanu) went into hiding. Now, I can’t remember the day but in an interview on Channels TV, one of Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brothers said that he was in hiding and he knew where he was.

“And one lawyer came up that he has taken the Chief of Army Staff to court. Now, who gave you the brief? You said you do not know where he (Kanu) is. Now, who gave you the brief?

“And the media is asking us where is Nnamdi Kanu? Why not ask the man that said so who gave him the brief to take people to court when he does not know where the man is?

“That is why those people following him have entered into a one-chance vehicle. This is somebody standing trial in a criminal case. Sometimes, whether we like it or not, we want to stand against the truth.

“But no matter how long, the truth will come to pass on October 17. This is an individual without a means of livelihood.

“I can speak eloquently. So what? If I can speak like him; I can also have my own group, that’s exactly what is happening. So, what is the essence of our education as a people? You know that somebody is in a criminal case, and you believe in him.”
