It appears the statement that says ” there is nothing money cannot do” worked well in the recent arrest of the Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
There have been various reports on how and where he was arrested June 27. Though our source didn’t mention the exact place or country where he was picked up, but the source gave revelations how ” donations” was used as a bit to track Kanu.
The operation to re-arrest and put him back on trial had been “ongoing for a while” by the Federal Government of Nigeria as security agencies have been on his trail four years running.
The IPOB leader was tracked through some members of IPOB who were recently arrested following a massive military operation in the south-east.
The security agencies worked through the links to give Kanu the impression that he was going to be given some “millions of dollars” in cash donations to the organization.
He was said to have decided to collect the money himself “because of the huge amount involved”.
We gathered Kanu kept his associates in the dark about his mission, according to the security sources who said the top hierarchy did not know his whereabouts on the day he was arrested.
We understand Kanu had been having serious crisis of confidence with some of his lieutenants over financial matters.
On arriving at the location where he was to collect the ‘donation’, the IPOB leader was arrested by that country’s security agencies and Interpol, and deported to Nigeria.
Clearly, greed and the love for financial rewards played major roles in bringing the Biafra agitators leader to justice.
He is back to the DSS net as the court has fixed July 26 as the commencement date of his trial.
