Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria to face his trial.
Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami disclosed this on Tuesday at a joint press briefing with the State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja.
Malami said Kanu’s arrest and repatriation was achieved through international collaboration with security agencies.
The IPOB leader and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the federal High Court in Abuja.
Recall that accused fled the country in September 2017 following an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State.
A court order was obtained by the Nigeria government on September 20th, 2017, to designate IPOB a terrorist group and to proscribe it.
