NNAMDI KANU ARREST: WHAT NEXT?

Oladeji Showunmi

Many Nigerians were taken aback yesterday, June 30, 2021, when Attorney General Abubakar Malami stated that Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, had been detained. It was even more surprising because the federal government made no indication that it was trying to re-arrest him, partly because he is a British citizen, and we all know how extraditing someone from the United Kingdom works.

Now that he has been apprehended, one could question if this would put an end to the instability in the country’s southeast, where he enjoys the most support. Will the Eastern Security Network simply throw down the towel?

There’s also the issue of the international communities; it’s no secret that Nnamdi Kanu has some international clout, and some people support his cause. What does this signify for Nigeria? The events of the next few days will determine the outcome.

Whatever happens, the Nigerian government would be well to heed the advice of Arewa elders to be careful and Second Republic aviation minister Mbazulike Amechi in giving Kanu a fair.
