The Nigerian Government has alleged that there are countries that are sponsoring the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.


While addressing the press on Friday, the attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, made the allegation insisting that some state actors aided Kanu after he escaped from the country.

“We have also established that Kanu is not alone in his subversive activities. He has accomplices in Nigeria and abroad, individuals and groups as well as state and non-state actors who are aiding and facilitating his campaign against the people and state of Nigeria.


“Some of the state actors aided Kanu, even as a fugitive, in his destructive mission, ignoring the terrorist nature of his activities.


“We call on these countries to desist from aiding subversive acts by Kanu and IPOB against the state of Nigeria and its people.


“Conversely, there are some friendly countries which, recognising the status of IPOB as a terrorist organization, have either banned the activities of IPOB or placed Kanu on Stop List.


“To these peace-loving countries that have put Kanu on their Stop Lists and banned IPOB from operating in their territories, we express our appreciation,” Malami stated.



The AGF also stated that President Muhammadu Buhari had inaugurated a Presidential Ad-hoc Committee to investigate activities of the IPOB, after Kanu’s arrest and repatriation in June.


According to him, the 24 members of the committee were drawn from the Federal Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Federal Ministry of Information (MoI), Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Department of State Services (DSS), National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA).
