A forensic investigation carried out so far into the activities of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has revealed a treasure trove of information on the proscribed group and its leader Nnamdi Kanu, according to the Nigerian government. 

Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, affirmed the government’s stance on Thursday afternoon during a press briefing over the rearrest of Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader.

“We can tell you that the forensic investigation carried out so far has revealed a treasure trove of information on the proscribed IPOB leader and his collaborators,” he said.

“While the investigation continues, we assure you that none of the collaborators, irrespective of their standing in the society, will be spared. 

“They will all face the full wrath of the law for their activities that challenge our nation’s sovereignty and threaten its unity. No one, no matter how highly placed, is bigger than the country.”

FIJ had exclusively reported how Kanu was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria last Sunday to resume his trial on Tuesday.

While Kanu’s family had raised concerns about his arrest and re-arraignment, Lai mentioned that the detainee would be given fair hearing although he had violated court orders after his last release in 2017.

“I can assure you that the fair deal that Kanu denied many of the victims of the violence which he willfully instigated through his broadcasts and tweets will not be denied him,” the Minister said.
