Radio Biafra Director “Nnamdi Kanu” was reportedly arrested by Nigeria secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS) on Saturday, at Golden Tulip Hotel in Lagos, as he flew into Nigeria from his base in the UK has been granted bail by the Abuja Municipal Council Magistrate court.
The Indigenous People of Biafra’s lawyer said, Mr. Egechukwu Obetta, “Nnamdi was put in the same cell with terrorists. He has a health challenge which is life threatening. He is sensitive to delicacies. He told us that he will never eat any food served by the Federal Government of Nigeria.“
The President of the Diaspora Igbo group in a telephone interview with Vanguard, yesterday, said that every Nigerian has freedom of speech, adding that the Nigerian government should tell the whole world the offence Kanu had committed.
The Public Relations Officer of WIC, Jimmy Asiegbu also had said to newsmen via a telephone interview that the reasons for the arrest should be made clear.
Mr. Okorie Kalu, described Mr. Nnamdi Kalu as “a freedom fighter.”
In his considered opinion, “the arrest of the freedom fighter by operatives of the DSS, would rather strengthen the resolve of Ndigbo to continue angling for the Republic of Biafra.”
He advised the Federal Government against tampering with Kalu’s cherished freedom, adding that it was best for the government to avoid doing anything that would heat up the polity.
