Biafra: Minister explains why Nnamdi Kanu has not been re-arrested 

The Minister of Interior, Lt-Gen Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd), on Friday claimed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has violated the bail conditions granted him by the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Dambazau said this at a news conference in Abuja, where he explained that it was left for the court to determine what steps to take on the IPOB leader and to what extent he violated the conditions when his trial resumes.

He also added that the Federal Government had no immediate plan to re-arrest Kanu.

“The issue is that yes Nnamdi Kanu violated bail conditions, but it is not time yet for him to go back to the court for trial.

“We have this assumption but I think it is left for the court that gave those conditions to determine whether those conditions were violated or not.

“If those conditions were violated, the court knows what to do. We cannot assume that those conditions are being violated.

“Yes the public knows those conditions were given, but the determination of the extent of violation will be left for the court.

“It is not like the police will go after Kanu to arrest him on the grounds that he violated the bail conditions.

“Kanu will have a day in court and the court will determine his fate because it is the court that gave those conditions.”
