Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has rejected claims that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is being held by the Nigerian Government.
Mohammed’s claim is coming days after the Nigerian army, under the ‘Operation Python Dance II’ invaded home of the IPOB leader and clashed with members of the group in Umuahia, Abia state capital.
Ever since the clash, the whereabouts of Kanu has remained unknown. Read also: JUST IN: Kanu’s lawyer takes Buratai to Court
Reacting to the claim, Mohammed told reporters that, “He (Kanu) is not being held by government at all.”
According to him, Kanu has “crossed a line” with his agitation for Biafra and that he (Mohammed) suspects the IPOB leader could be hiding.
