Written by City Radio on October 14, 2022
The self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has been acquitted but not discharged despite the judgement of the appellate court.
This was the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi’s comment after the National Security Council meeting on Friday.
While briefing State House Correspondents after the meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, the police affairs chief stated that a political solution was not discussed at the council but centralized discussion on the court’s outcome.
The council, according to him, is therefore considering an appropriate action to take on the matter and would notify Nigerians of its final position on the matter in due course.
The Council’s move gives backing to a statement by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, shortly after the appeal court verdict to free Kanu
