Nnamdi Kanu has continued to remain under arrest and close monitoring after he was repatriated to Nigeria in July. Nnamdi Kanu allegedly fled Nigeria in 2017 in other to escape trial in the court of law.
Sahara Reporters stated that Nnamdi Kanu was charged with many criminal charges in 2017 but he escaped trial after he was granted bail by a recognized court of law.
Also in 2017, IPOB was proscribed as an illegal group under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Due to the ban on the group, the federal government has identified members of IPOB as a terrorist and the Nigerian Police as well as the army has been given the order to arrest and detain any member of the group.
Also, Sahara Reporters alleged that IPOB immediately adopted a policy known as ” Sit- At- Home Order” after Nnamdi Kanu was repatriated to Nigeria. Before the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, he was said to be funding the IPOB from abroad.
Meanwhile, a new report has revealed the statement made by the lawyer of Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
