The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been rearrested by the security operatives.
The development was hinted by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
He said he was intercepted on Sunday, June 27, 2021.
Malami said the leader of proscribed IPOB will be rearraigned at the Federal High Court for continuation of his trial.
At a joint press briefing on Tuesday with the State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja, Mr Malami disclosed that international collaborative efforts with security agencies led to Mr Kanu’s arrest and repatriation to Nigeria.
Mr Kanu and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Mr Kanu fled the country in September 2017 after an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State.
The Nigerian government obtained a court order on September 20, 2017, to designate IPOB a terrorist group and to proscribe it
