Abia State police has stated that the Force will legal action against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu if he returns to Nigeria for the burial of his late mother, Daily Post reports.
This became clear when the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Ene Okon, said that police in the state will not spare Kanu if he returns to his motherland because he has been declared wanted by Nigeria government.
“The court will decide and not the police. But the fact remains that once any person is declared wanted, wherever the police see him in any corner of Nigeria, the person will be arrested.
“That has to do with international law and a lot of things are involved that require going through Interpol.
“Some people believe Nigeria police is acting as local lords in this matter. Why has it not initiated that move for Interpol to get the IPOB leader arrested?
“That’s a question I cannot answer, there is international dimension to it. The Federal Government has to come in here,” OKon said.
It was recalled that IPOB had stated that Kanu will be returning home for his late mother’s burial.
