The last may not have been heard of the rift between the Nigerian Army and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), as the group has dragged Chief of Army Staff, Lt- Gen Tukur Buratai, to the Federal High Court, Abuja Division, asking the court to compel the army chief to produce its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in the suit, filed, today, Wednesday 27th Sept, said Kanu’s known whereabouts was with the military personnel who attacked his premises in the course of their Operation PYTHON DANCE II, on September 14.
There have been speculations that Nnamdi Kanu and his parents might have been arrested and dumped in some undisclosed prison in the North, in order to remove them from the eye of the public and to silence him.
This also will set his bail condition squarely on the shoulder of the federal government, whose duty it is now to produce him.
This will now put the federal government on the defensive, by either producing Kanu or tell the public what happened to him during the invasion of his family home on that fateful day
Both Nnamdi Kanu and his father, who is a traditional ruler of his autonomous community, and his mother have not been heard from or seen since after the attack on their home. Their family dog was killed during the attack on their family home, and wanton destruction of their home and his father’s palace.
