Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has said he was happy about the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Asked about his reaction to Kanu’s arrest during an interview with BBC Pidgin, the Kaduna governor said:
“I was very happy. I was very happy for two reasons. First, the man was on trial and he jumped bail. That in itself is a crime and no legal system should accept that. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Nnamdi Kanu or Nasir El-Rufai.”
