Former Director, the Department of State Services (DSS), Mike Ejiofor, has expressed shock over the rearrest and extradition of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking to Channels Television, Ejiofor stated that the law should prevail on the matter of the pro-Biafra activist.
The former DSS boss stated that though he had nothing against the IPOB leader, he should have come back to Nigeria to led agitations for the Biafra Republic.
The secret police ex-boss commended the collaborative efforts of Nigerian security agencies over Kanu’s arrest.
“Well, when I got the news I was shocked. Shocked in the sense that we were not expecting this kind of arrest and that shows the collaborative efforts of our security agencies. And the issue of his arrest is a major one,” he said.
“We must commend our security agencies because Nigeria, we must all agree that Nigeria is drifting to the crevices. We have a lot of security challenges and nobody is against Nnamdi Kanu’s agitation for Biafra.
“But, do it in a proper manner, not for criminality. He led a lot of people to lose their lives innocently with this agitation, and then he is outside the country propagating Biafra.
“So the main thing for him, I believe is to come to Nigeria and lead his people, so that they follow him. but, not that you’re outside and people are losing their lives. I abhor criminality, that is the most important thing.
“Even though, it must be noted too that Nnamdi Kanu has said that they are not responsible for the killings in the East, we should have right to life. sanctity to life.
“He opened his mouth to call Nigeria a zoo. And he said that he had placed a N100 million bounty on a sitting governor. These are reckless statements. And I believe that the law should take its course,” Ejiofor said.
