The Federal Government has vowed that it will not spare anyone who collaborated with arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to launch assaults on Nigeria and its people no matter how highly placed such elements may be.
This came as the federal government assures Nnamdi Kanu of fair trial in his 11-count treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms charge, which is pending before a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made the position of the Federal Government known at a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday morning, July 1.
“It will interest Nigerians to know that for over two years, our security and intelligence agencies were on the trail of the proscribed IPOB leader as he lived a five-star life across several countries, travelling on chartered private jets, living in luxury apartments and turning out in designing clothes and shoes.
We can tell you that the forensic investigation carried out so far has revealed a treasure trove of information on the proscribed IPOB leader and his collaborators. While the investigation continues, we assure you that none of the collaborators, irrespective of their standing in the society, will be spared.
They will all face the full wrath of the law for their activities that challenge our nation’s sovereignty and threaten its unity. No one, no matter how highly placed, is bigger than the country.
However, I can assure you that the fair deal that Kanu denied many of the victims of the violence which he wilfully instigated through his broadcasts and tweets will not be denied him,” he said.
