Archbishop of Enugu Province, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev Emmanuel Chukwuma, on Tuesday, while reacting to the arrested of the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, described it as good development.
Recall that Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the federation, Abubakar Malami, during a media briefing said the IPOB leader was arrested on Sunday due to “the collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and security services”.
The cleric accused Kanu of jumping bail, adding that he was not pleased with the Minority leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe and others who secured his bail.
Chukwuma said, “Rather when he was abroad, he was instigating people to cause confusion. We warned him several times to stop that. It’s not only that; we felt that if you are a leader and you are part of the problem of Nigeria, you should come down here, so we can discuss with others how to solve the problem.”
The cleric who described the IPOB leader as a weak leader alleged that Kanu, “played into the hands of Nigerian Intelligence Agency, who set him up with a woman from London to Brazil, where he was arrested and then tranquilised to the point of bringing him to Nigeria.”
“That shows irresponsibility. How can a woman and tranquiliser be a way of catching you if you are really a very strong leader? I feel disappointed in him because they lured him out of London to Brazil with a woman. It’s a shame.”
