The Federal government of Nigeria has shifted ground on why or not Nnamdi Kanu will come to Nigeria for his parent’s burial. The FG will grant Nnamdi Kanu partial presidential pardon to attend his parent’s burial on Friday in a condition that he will not hold any unlawful gathering.
A source at the presidency disclosed to the newsmen that the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu may not be arrested if he comes to Nigeria to pay his last respect to both his mother and his father. But the pardon does not come without a condition.
According to the source, Nnamdi Kanu may be arrested if he addresses a press or grants any interview. If he organised any rally or do any act that will break the law or engage in any activity that can undermine the peace and security of the people of Abia State.
He should also call his members to order to avoid the breaking of law and order which can lead to a physical confrontation between the Nigerian security agencies and his members.
There has been a tension in the state as Abia Police and the IPOB leader drums a war song. While the Abia Commissioner of Police threatened to arrest Nnamdi Kanu if he was seen in the state, Nnamdi Kanu, on the other hand, has vowed to fight back and resist any attempt of cracking down of any of his members.
