Kanu ‘under surveillance’ as police deploy more personnel in south- east

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been placed under surveillance.

This is to prevent him from fleeing the country if the court revokes his bail and order his re-arrest.

Last week, the federal government approached the court to seek the revocation of Kanu’s bail for flouting the conditions given to him before he was released.

Binta Nyako, a judge of a federal high court in Abuja who set him free, ordered Kanu not to grant media interviews or to be seen in a crowd of more than 10 people, but he has since violated the bail conditions.

The prosecution had said that instead of using the opportunity of his bail to attend to his health needs, Kanu had gone ahead to inaugurate a security outfit, known as Biafra Security Service.

The prosecution said this constituted a threat to national security.

Reacting to the government’s move, Kanu said anyone who tries to arrest him will die.

He has also vowed that the November 18 governorship election in Anambra state would not hold if the federal government fails to conduct a referendum on Biafra.
