What seemed like a suspense to some was put to an end when the presidency on Tuesday, October 23, made its first statement in reaction to the reappearance of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Independent People of Igbo (IPOB). Garba Shehu, the media aid to President Muhammadu Buhari, spoke on the development in a recent interview with BBC.
“If it happens to be true, the video footage showing Mr Nnamdi Kanu; the truth has been revealed about his alleged assassination against Nigerian government,” Shehu said. Kanu’s disappearance started in 2017 after clashes between his supporters and soldiers ensued in a military exercise in Abia state. A huge number of his supporters at the time claimed that the military had killed Kanu.
His trial for felony was also stalled due to his absence as his lawyer insisted he was either killed or kidnapped by soldiers who attacked his family house during the military exercise.
