Federal Government has attested that security and intelligence agencies trailed Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra for two years before his re-arrest.
This was disclosed by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture at a media briefing in Abuja today. He also said that Nnamdi Kanu was living a “five-star life across several countries.”
“He was travelling on chartered private jets, living in luxury apartments and turning out in designing clothes and shoes,” he said.
“Of course, as we all saw, he was wearing an attire made by Fendi, a luxury Italian fashion brand, when he was arrested.”
The minister said Kanu’s re-arrest and repatriation were made possible through the collaboration of Nigerian security and intelligence agencies.
He described the re-arrest and repatriation as “one of the most classic operations of its type in the world’’.
“What we can tell you, once again, is that the re-arrest was made possible by the diligent efforts of our security and intelligence agencies, in collaboration with countries with which we have obligations,’’ he continued.
“We will continue to respect and honour the obligations.”
