A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Joe Igbokwe, has said the federal government has enough evidence to jail the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria on the 27th of June, 2021.
He was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date which is July 26 and 27.
Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.
Speaking In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, Igbokwe, the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said the IPOB leader perpetrated several crimes.
“He tok on Radio Biafra, say if dem see me, im boys, make dem behead me and kill all my children, destroy my home,” he said.
“Dem (FG) get big evidence..wetin im tok and wetin hapun. You tink say dem go blame these boys for South-East for di destruction, killing of policemen, and burning of police formations?
“Na dia leader, dem go bring dis tins before am. Dem go bring Gulak case before am, so many tins. E go see imsef dey tok, so na evidence. You sell yourself out, dat na how e go-go.”
Igbokwe noted that the available proofs are weighty and unbelievable.
He accused the IPOB leader of inciting murder, arson and promoted “Jubril from Sudan”, a reference to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Asked if IPOB can continue to function with the secessionist in government custody, the APC chieftain said the proscribed group has been “overtaken by events”.
