The Biafra leader is neither missing nor held by the Nigeria Government rather he is only hiding according to Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
Mohammed’s claim is coming days after the Nigerian army, under the ‘Operation Python Dance II’ invaded the home of the IPOB leader and clashed with members of the group in Umuahia, Abia state capital.
Ever since the clash, the whereabouts of Kanu has remained unknown.
Reacting to the claim, Mohammed told reporters that, “He (Kanu) is not being held by the government at all.”
According to him, Kanu has “crossed a line” with his agitation for Biafra and that he (Mohammed) suspects the IPOB leader could be hiding.
