Former spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party, Deji Adeyanju has alleged that the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was tricked into a peace meeting and subsequently arrested.
PlatinumPost reports that Kanu was arraigned in court on Tuesday afternoon by Nigerian authorities after being on the run since 2017.
Adeyanju wrote on Twitter: “Someone high up in Govt told me they used a guy, a politician Kanu trust to deceive him to come for peace talks & arrested him in one of the African countries.
“You will recall Buhari even made comments that IPOB should give peace a chance.”
According to Nigeria’s attorney-general, Abubakar Malami, Kanu was arrested by Interpol and Nigerian security agents.
Justice Binta Nyako remanded the fugitive secessionist leader in DSS custody until July 26th for a continuation of his trial.
