Contrary to widespread speculation that leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, may have been held by the military, the Army Defence Headquarters (DHQ) said yesterday that it had no knowledge of the whereabouts of the secessionist campaigner.
Defence spokesman, John Enenche, who addressed journalists in Abuja categorically declared that DHQ could not be held responsible for the missing IPOB leader.
He also denied that the military invaded the country home of Kanu in Abia State. He said: “I watched the operations live. I also got first hand information from our men on ground. For the records, Nnamdi Kanu was never taken away by the military.”
The IPOB leader’s whereabouts remained unknown since the soldiers executing the second phase of military operation code-named, “Python Dance or Egwu Eke” allegedly invaded his house.
He is due to appear in court this October for the continuation of his trail.
