Ask Nnamdi Kanu’s sureties his whereabouts, not govt – Buhari’s aide

The Presidency has advised those seeking the whereabouts of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to direct their inquiries to the people that signed his bail bond in April.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu offered the advice on Thursday.

He said: “I am surprised that someone would ask this question. Look, some people went to court and obtained his freedom, they signed his bail.

“I believe that a high profile group including a Senator of the Federal Republic signed in a court of law and obtained his freedom. So, if you are looking for him, why don’t you ask the people who bailed him?

“Nobody has informed me that Nnamdi Kanu is in the hands of any institution of government. But if I was looking for him, I would ask the guy who bailed him because that is the deal he has with the court of the land.”

Uncertainty over Kanu’s whereabouts heightened following an alarm raise by his counsel, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who alleged that the activist was missing in the aftermath of the September 14 soldiers’ invasion of his home in Umuahia, Abia State.

Indeed Mallam Shehu gave his advice cognisant of the circumstances of Kanu’s bail after the Federal High Court in Abuja had granted him bail on April 25.

The Senator representing Abia South, Dr. Enyinnaya Abaribe, reportedly signed Kanu’s bail bond.
