Nnamdi-Kanu-and-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has hailed the collaboration between security agencies during the operations staged against Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.

This was contained in a statement signed by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

According to Buhari, the agencies executed the arrests of individuals who had inflicted pain and hardships on fellow citizens with great synchronization.

He noted that Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leaders are known for murderous actions and virulent messaging.

Shehu also confirmed the “international operation” against Kanu resulted in his hand over to the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and then repatriation.

The aid said the violence inspired by IPOB has led to hundreds of fatalities, particularly targeted at Government assets and Law Enforcement Agents.

“There have been at last count, fifty separate violent attacks, heavily concentrated in the South-East, which heaped further hardship on our honest and hardworking citizens, preventing them from earning their livelihood and going about their normal lives,” he said.
