Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in the Czech Republic and not the United Kingdom.

Kanu was arrested by the Federal Government, in collaboration with the Interpol.

Contrary to reports making the rounds that Kanu was arrested in the UK, ComoassNG can report that he was actually arrested in the Czech Republic

A very competent source, who craved anonymity revealed that Kanu left England for Singapore, before heading to the Czech Republic on Friday.

It was revealed that the Czech Republic officials tipped off the Federal Government, leading to Kanu’s arrest on Saturday in Prague, the Czech Republic capital.

Nigeria’s Attorney General and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami has also disclosed that Kanu would be taken before the Federal High Court in Abuja, for the continuation of his trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

Recall that Kanu was granted bail in April 2017, the Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court, on health grounds, but he jumped bail, after flouting some of the conditions given for his bail by the court. He had since then been on the run. Justice Nyako later revoked Kanu’s bail on March 28, 2019, and issued a bench warrant for his arrest in any part of the country.
