The Abia State Police Commissioner, Ene Okon has vowed to arrest the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, if he ever returns to the state.
Kanu has been on the run since he was granted bail by the Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja few years back.
The IPOB leader had escaped out of Nigeria shortly before men of the Nigerian Army invaded his residence in Afaraukwu in Abia State few years ago.
However, the Abia commissioner of police, in a chat with The Sun, said if Kanu stepped into the state he would be apprehended and handed over the court for his trial.
Okon also rubbished Kanu’s style of struggle for secession, stressing that the IPOB leader was “carrying out hard, subversive tendencies”.
According to Okon: “Kanu? Those ones were merely nationalists, Nelson Mandela fought apartheid, which apartheid is Nnamdi Kanu fighting in Nigeria?
” There are no bases for comparison what happened in India and South Africa with what Nnamdi Kanu is doing. Mandela fought against apartheid, but Kanu is carrying out hard, subversive tendencies.
“He is already a wanted man. You and I knew how he escaped; he is standing trial already, so, any time he steps in here and he is seen, he has to be arrested and handed over to the court to face his trial.”
