Nnamdi Kanu’s wife breaks silence on IPOB leader’s re-arrest


Uchechi Okwu-Kanu, the wife of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has spoken about the Nigeria government rearresting her husband.

Kanu was recently apprehended by the Nigerian security and intelligence agencies.

He has been repartriated to resume his trial after jumping bail in 2017.

The secessionist is currently been detained at the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, pending the resumption of his trial on July 26.

Speaking in an interview with a United Kingdom newspaper, The Sunday Times, Uchechi said she was devastated upon hearing that her husband was re-arrested and repatriated to the country.

She revealed that she lost contact with the husband since the incident occured in late June.

“It’s hard for me to speak. I’m extremely devastated. He has been beaten and tortured and I am scared for his life.

“I was always worried about Nnamdi. When you’re asking for freedom from dictatorship, you are a target. But when I saw what happened in Belarus and how no one did anything, I knew nowhere was safe.

“The Nigerian government carrying out this rendition is a crime. We’re not even talking about independence,” She was quoted as saying.
