The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has reportedly fled the United Kingdom over the fear of arrest by the INTERPOL.
According to a report by The Will Nigeria, the IPOB leader is reportedly on the run following a major move taken by the Federal Government of Nigeria led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Nnamdi Kanu, who doubles as director of Radio Biafra, is allegedly on the run; following the official request by Nigeria’s government for his arrest and extradition from the United Kingdom; with the international police (Interpol) on his trail.
The application of Kanu’s arrest was made by the government about two weeks ago; through the official diplomatic channel at the ministry of Foreign affairs.
Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu has denied allegations that the group is planning to attack Lagos State.
Kanu in a statement on Monday evening accused the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu of lying by the alarm he raised; that IPOB is planning to launch an attack on Lagos State.
Meanwhile, an Igbo Group, Ndigbo Lagos, on Tuesday, May 11, criticised Joe Igbokwe, the Lagos State Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources; over claims that some Igbo youths who he believes are IPOB members are scheming to attack public infrastructure in Lagos.
According to the group, the claims by Igbokwe are “mischievous, false, baseless and inciting.”
This was also contained in a statement issued by Prince Tony Eze, the group’s Director of Communication and Strategy; which came in the aftermath of a refutation by Nnamdi Kanu about allegations of an IPOB threat to attack Lagos.
The Ndigbo Lagos, who claimed to be the umbrella body of all Igbo organizations in Lagos stated; “governments of the South Eastern States of Nigeria and various security agencies in the country have initiated investigations; to unravel the persons behind the killings as well as destruction of properties in the South East.”
