Okwu Kanu, father of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that the federal government was planning to assassinate his son.
Okwu, in an interview with The Sun, said that the re-arrest order issued by the federal government against Nnamdi Kanu is aimed at eliminating him.
Okwu asserted that his son did nothing wrong against Nigeria’s constitution.
“When they talk of re-arresting him, it means they want to kill him, but God will not allow them because my son has done nothing wrong,” he said.
“I am using this opportunity to call on the United Nations to call the Nigerian government to order because they are planning to kill my son.
“Why will they want to re-arrest him? Did he kill anybody? Did he flout the constitution?
“Some people are saying that my son, flouted the bail condition given him by a Federal High Court in Abuja, but the question remains, what type of bail condition was that? Is it possible that a person of my son’s standing in the society could stay without meeting up to 10 persons in a day or week?
“So, the said bail condition was against his fundamental human rights.
“The court in the first place never restrained him from moving about. So, in the course of going to see one or two of his friends and those people would organise reception for him, I don’t think there is anything wrong with that to warrant his being crucified.
“The question I have been asking since I heard about this planned re-arrest is whether Nnamdi is running away from the country? There is no way he would do that. Any day they want him to appear in court, he will quietly do that,” he added.
