Reports reveal that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra was lured, Kidnapped in Czech Republic and then extradited to Nigeria to continue his trial.
AUTHENTIC NEWS GIANT learnt that he was lured to the country to receive a donation of weapons to IPOB’s Eastern Security Network (ESN).
“He was lured there to come and take a large donation of arms”, the sources said.
Kanu is a UK citizen and he holds a UK passport. To go to Czech Republic, holders of UK passports do not require a visa.
And it takes less than two hours to make the journey to Prague, the capital.
The Czech Republic is a major arms supplier to Nigeria.
Out of the $91.65m Czech’s exports to Nigeria in 2020, arms and weapons accounted for $32.69m, according to data from tradingeconomics.com.
In disclosing the dramatic arrest on Tuesday, Attorney-general and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami said Kanu was arrested after some ‘recent steps” taken by the Nigerian government.
He did not mention Interpol, but said he was intercepted through the collaborative efforts of “Nigerian intelligence and Security Services”.
“He has been brought back to Nigeria, in order to continue facing trial after disappearing, while on bail regarding 11 count charges against him”, he said.
Why Kanu fell for the Czech Republic trap was clear. From his supposedly safe haven in England, he imbibed the belief that a Security Protective defence was necessary to actualise and protect his Biafra dream.
“#IPOB remains the only constant obstacle on the path of the Fulani conquest of the rest of Nigeria”, he wrote.
Now, the duty of Safeguarding Biafraland remains our sole focus & responsibility. This Is why #ESN was created to put an end to the unchecked atrocities against innocent Biafrans”, he added.
