Nigeria has enormous evidence to nail Nnamdi Kanu, APC's Joe Igbokwe says

 Joe Igbokwe, a stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says the Federal Government of Nigeria has enormous evidence to convict Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.

The trial of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader will resume at the Federal High Court on July 26.

Kanu, who faces treason charges, was arrested in an international operation on June 27.

The separatist was on the run for years after he jumped bail.

Igbokwe, the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said the IPOB leader perpetrated several crimes.

In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, he recalled how Kanu ordered a hit on him and his family.

“He tok on Radio Biafra, say if dem see me, im boys, make dem behead me and kill all my children, destroy my home.

“Dem (FG) get big evidence..wetin im tok and wetin hapun. You tink say dem go blame these boys for South-East for di destruction, killing of policemen, and burning of police formations?

“Na dia leader, dem go bring dis tins before am. Dem go bring Gulak case before am, so many tins. E go see imsef dey tok, so na evidence. You sell yourself out, dat na how e go-go.”

Igbokwe noted that the available proofs are weighty and unbelievable. He said Kanu incited murder, arson and promoted “Jubril from Sudan”, a reference to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Asked if IPOB can continue to function with the secessionist in government custody, the APC chieftain said the proscribed group has been “overtaken by events”.

Igbokwe stressed that war is no longer an option in the 21st and reiterated he is proudly Nigerian and will die as one.
