– They insisted that Operation Python Dance is still on
– Kanu’s brother had said only the IPOB leader could disclose his whereabouts
Top military sources from the army headquarters have spoken about the disappearance of Nnamdi Kanu saying the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra is not in their custody.
Kanu’s lawyers led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor had filed a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, September 27 asking for an order for Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai to produce him in court.
The Punch however reports that a top military source said Kanu’s whereabouts was not known to the army and that it would have been revealed if he was in their custody.
“We don’t want to be drawn into this propaganda. For goodness sake, if we have Kanu, of what use is it if we keep quiet? We have never been secretive. Nobody prompted us before we came out to talk about Egwu Eke II starting in the South-East. Nobody prompted us before we came out to say that despite all the pressures, we were not withdrawing the operation. The exercise is still ongoing.”
Another source from 82 Division headquarters, Enugu said: “Kanu is not with us. And I am not aware of his whereabouts.”
Meanwhile, Kanu’s brother simply identified as Fine Boy who spoke with The Punch on Sunday, September 17 had said only Kanu could disclose his own location.
“…Nnamdi will soon disclose his current location and IPOB will also react to the proscription of the group by the South-East Governors’ Forum.”
NAIJ.com previously reported that Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe was queried by his colleagues, mostly from the northern part of the country, for standing as surety for Kanu.
Reacting to the report, Abaribe denied that he was queried by the Senate for standing surety for Kanu.
