The Presidency has vowed to continue to prosecute the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, upon his arrival to the country.
This is just as it described Kanu’s threat to unleash hell on arrival as a mere distraction and hollow outburst.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, made this known on Tuesday during an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, Hausa Service.
“Kanu’s trial would be expected to continue, should he return to the country,” he said.

It would be recalled that Kanu resurfaced in Jerusalem recently and vowed to return to Nigeria to cause havoc.
His whereabouts had been a source of controversy for many months.
The Nigerian military had been accused of killing him in an alleged invasion of his house in the South East during Operation Python Dance II designed to stem the spate of violence at the time.
He was also undergoing trial for treason when he disappeared.
But in the BBC interview, Shehu discountenanced the threat by Kanu after he resurfaced, saying his case would not cause any feud between Nigeria and any other country.
“The Buhari administration is in constant touch with other friendly nations and has the best assurances that they would continue to reciprocate the respect Nigeria has for the sovereignty of their nations,” he said.
