Security Probes Kanu To Uncover IPOB Financiers
A “comprehensive investigation” of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu is ongoing, highly-placed sources revealed on Wednesday.
It involves rigorous screening of his call logs and social media handles by security agents.
The objective is to uncover the financiers of IPOB, the source said.
According to the source, the screening of the call logs and social media handles is a major task being carried out by a crack team of detectives.
The source explained: “After Kanu’s arrest, his phones were collected and demobilised. He has no access to any form of communication since then.
“Detectives are fishing for his backers at home and abroad, the foot-soldiers and his strategists.
“Personal and discreet accounts linked with Kanu will be blocked pending the conclusion of the ongoing investigation.
“Of interest to detectives is the operation of IPOB especially sources of arms to the proscribed organisation and the modus operandi of Radio Biafra.
“Beyond all these steps, the Federal Government is interested in unraveling how the secessionist agitation was conceived. At the end, vital facts will be released to the public and the diplomatic community.”
Recall that Kanu was “intercepted” in a concerted operation by security operatives collaborating with International Police (INTERPOL).
The IPOB leader was whisked to Abuja on Sunday. He was taken back to court on Tuesday and the court ordered his remand in Department of State Services (DSS) custody.
On Wednesday, Igbo leaders, IPOB and other ethnic nationality groups like Afenifere, the Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum, among others, urged the government to ensure a fair hearing for Kanu.
