Nnamdi Kanu: Security Agents Go After IPOB Financiers

Ade-Ade Bosun


In a bid to uncover the financiers of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, security agents are digging into Nnamdi Kanu’s call logs and screening his social media. Detectives are keen on unmasking the organization’s sources of funds and arms, the modus operandi of Radio Biafra not least.
Sources say the procedure is a routine aimed at unraveling nocturnal faces behind clandestine organizations including IPOB. In particular, a crack team of detectives are alleged to have been assigned the responsibility of unraveling the Kanu/IPOB case.
“After Kanu’s arrest, his phones were collected and demobilised. He has no access to any form of communication since then. Detectives are fishing for his backers at home and abroad, the foot-soldiers and his strategists. Personal and discreet accounts linked with Kanu will be blocked pending the conclusion of the ongoing investigation.
Beyond all these steps, the federal government is interested in unravelling how the secessionist agitation was conceived. At the end, vital facts will be released to the public and the diplomatic community,” a credible source said.
Though Kanu has been re-arraigned in court upon his arrival in the country, there are indications that fresh charges, with serious consequences, may also be laid against him and a number of his arrested allies.
Among others, he will have to contend with charges emanating from his alleged involvement and implication in the coordination of attacks and killings in the south east. One possibility is that the charges against him may include premeditated murder.
”Definitely, Kanu and his arrested commanders will be charged with murder. They have to account for the mass killings in the Southeast,” a source volunteers.
Kanu may not be the only one billed to face the full wrath of the law. There are indications too that his younger brother, who allegedly masterminded the coordinated attack on some Nigerians abroad, including the former deputy senate president, Sen Ike Ekweremadu, who was heckled in Germany, is also billed for prosecution.
Kanu was “intercepted” in a collaborative operation by Nigerian security operatives in conjunction with International Police, Interpol. He was subsequently shuttled to Abuja on Sunday where he was immediately taken back to court, the latter ordering him to be remanded in custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, pending his next appearance scheduled for July 26.
