Nigeria has arrested the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Attorney-General and Minister of Justice of the west African nation Abubakar Malami(SAN), on Tuesday disclosured to journalists that Kanu was arrested and brought back to Nigeria on Sunday.

Kanu and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. He also faces charges on unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

He had fled Nigeria in September 2017 after the military invaded his home in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State, in the southeast of Nigeria.

Malami described the arrest as the result of a collaborative effort between security agencies in Nigeria and Interpol.
