It has reportedly that The Nigerian Police Force placed Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, under surveillance.
From the reports made, this is to prevent him from fleeing the country, thereby stopping his re-arrest immediatly the Federal High Court in Abuja grants the Federal government’s the right to revoke his bail.
Lets recall that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, last week, wrote an application to the court asking for Kanu’s bail to be revoked. The federal government in the application said the secessionist group leader has repeatedly flouted his bail conditions.
Kanu in his reaction has said that anyone who plans to rearrest him will die while trying to.
However, the police seem to be undeterred by his threats as they have reportedly placed him under surveillance to prevent him from fleeing the country once his bail is revoked.
The police has also reportedly increased the number of its officers in the South East and South South regions. The move is to help prevent any breakdown of law and order following IPOB’s threat to disrupt the Anambra state November 18th governorship election if they don’t get a referendum for the creation of Biafra.
Among the police officers that have been increased in the South South and South East are those in the Counter-Terrorism unit, the Intelligence unit and the conventional policemen.
