Nigeria probing Biafra activist for 'terrorism': lawyer
By AFP

PUBLISHED: 13:53, 23 November 2015 | UPDATED: 13:53, 23 November 2015


An activist campaigning for a separate state of Biafra in southeast Nigeria is being investigated for "terrorism and terrorism financing", his lawyer said on Monday.

Nnamdi Kanu, whose arrest last month has sparked a wave of protests, is already charged with criminal conspiracy and intimidation as well as membership of an illegal organisation.

Kanu is the director of Radio Biafra, which the government has accused of being "seditious" and of broadcasting "hate speech", and a founder of the banned Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) group.

He was brought to a magistrates court in the capital on Monday following a ruling last week when Nigeria's secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS), failed to produce him.

But proceedings were adjourned until December 1 after the prosecution asked for the case to be tried in a higher court.

Kanu's lawyer, Vincent Egechukwu, told reporters the DSS had secretly obtained an order at the Federal High Court on November 10 for his continued custody.

The order enables the DSS "to detain (Kanu) in its custody for a period of 90 days pending the conclusion of an ongoing investigation of terrorism and terrorism financing", he said.

Kanu has denied the original charges and was previously granted conditional bail but the DSS refused to release him, arguing the conditions for his release had not been met.

Kanu, who has emerged as the new figurehead for Biafran separatists, came to court dressed in a light-blue shirt with a white collar and sleeves rolled up to his elbows.

He was surrounded by dozens of armed security men but waved and smiled to well-wishers outside the court. Afterwards, he was whisked away in a security vehicle.

Pro-Biafran activists have renewed their claim for a separate state, arguing the southeast region has been neglected by a succession of federal governments since the end of the civil war.

The conflict from 1967 to 1970, which left some one million dead mainly from starvation and disease, was sparked when Biafran leaders unilaterally declared independence from Nigeria.

Buhari should release Nnamdi ASAP! Since arrest a handful protest have become sea spread protest. From village gathering to City wide protest that have migrated to Abuja.

Moving the case to a higher court will only increase the case profile and generate controversy. Soon the international community will take ide on the matter and start talking.

How come is Judge is a Northern Muslim? Prosecutor is a Northern Muslim, President is a Northern Muslim.

Can Nnamdi Kanu a Christian southerner from the east ever get a fair hearing? Let Nnamdi go.

Nigeria is notorious for Kangaroo court, which is even worst under Buhari.

U mumu have managed to make a noise maker into a global activist and hero.

The longer this drag on the more awareness you give to Biafra Activist.

Stop making a mountain out of a mole hill and let Nnamdi Kanu go. The wisest move ever.

U have Ohanaeze, Mbaka and Obi of Onitsha to work with to stop all move towards Biafra.

Buhari can dialogue with the govs. Who is Nnamdi?

Let him go now.

The FG is indirectly making Kanu and his movement even more popular. Free press. Local and International.

This kind of reminds one of the subtle cryptic message from Obama to Buhari during the latter's visit to the WH in July.

Only God knows how this will all end.

It is a shame that our leaders are blinded by tribal hatred. All this feeds into the separatist agenda.

Global gini? Maybe in the jungle of alaigbo.

He is a terrorist, war monger, hate preacher, toothless lion, a Lunatic Albino and an Ayatollah.

If you ask the people in Pakistan, yemen and Afghanistan, they will tell you Osama too was an activist. The same way Al Baghadadi and Jihadi John are activists for ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.

Am suspecting the dss will implicate the guy by training one aboki from the north who will claim to be a member of bokoharam to implicate the guy. So Nnamdi and igbos should be watchful especially to avoid hacking his phone and the like , because in nigeria everything is possible

I don't know you are that dogmatic to oyinbos. So I should believe the rubbish Daily Mail is calling a write up, when the world can hear the Lunatic Albino calling for the killings of other Nigerians that are not of ethnic extraction, calling for insurrection against the state and threatening war against Nigeria.

If that was done in UK, Daily Mail will be applauding the Ayatollah of alaigbo aka The Dilector abi?

I.will take Daily Mail serious when UK government has enough liver to support the terrorist openly. For now, they are a soft sell print, doing everything possible to stay afloat of the economic recession.

These Nigerians think they are hurting Nnamdi Kanu. They don't know that the arrest of Kanu is denting what ever shred of credibility Nigeria has in the eyes of the international community while giving Kanu and the Biafran cause unprecedented media coverage far and wide. The joke is on DSS and Buhari.


Up Biafra!!

It was confirmed by INEC that GMB has 14million followers.

No one has confirmed that of the Lunatic Albino. Let him contest in a gubernatorial election and let us see the vote he will garner.

Even OBJ had more votes than Ojukwu in SE, how much more the Ayatollah of alaigbo.

Biafrans are not radicals or miscreants as certain people from other regions rumored, lie or want to believe. We are humans and we want to maintain humanity, and if to keep humanity sane is by glamouring for freedom, self determination and improve good quality of living like other developed world. So be it.

All hail Biafra..
