IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu’s Family Raises Alarm, Alleges Financial Gain In His Continued Detention



Family of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, weekend, said it suspected that the continued detention of their son was not unconnected to the N800 million the federal government has continued to spend each time the IPOB leader appeared in court.

Giving a new dimension to the federal government’s refusal to free Kanu, spokesman of the family, Emmanuel Kanu, said the family was aware of claims that the FG spends that much for each of Kanu’s appearances in court.

The huge amount was said to involve provision of logistics, including adequate security around the movement of the IPOB leader from the DSS facility to the court and back.

Emmanuel noted that with the amount of money alleged to be involved, Kanu’s detention has become a lucrative business for “a cabal in government” hence the difficulty being encountered in securing his release.


“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has finally become a money-minting venture for a few corrupt individuals in the corridors of power,” adding that, “government should tell the people who collects and spends the money, and on what.

“Our fear is that if it’s true that such humongous amount of money were spent on bringing him to court any time he is to appear, then it may be impossible to grant him bail any time soon,” he said.

This, according to him, is “because the cabal benefiting from his continued incarceration may not be willing to let go of their oil well.”

Meanwhile, the family has raised fresh concern over the IPOB leader’s health issues, saying he needed urgent medical attention to avert a looming health crisis.

“We got information this morning that he is critically down. He has not been granted access to his personal doctors, and he urgently needs cardiologist. He should not be allowed to die in DSS custody,” the family spokesman lamented.
