"Sunday Igboho Is Probably Next" - Nigerians React On Nnamdi Kanu’s Arrest

On Tuesday, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, confirmed the arrest for IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu’s re-arrest.

Kanu, who was charged with terrorism, treasonable felony, and financing unlawful organizations, fled Nigeria immediately after his arraignment and admittance on bail before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

On March 28, 2019, Justice Binta Nyako, who had given him bail due to his ill health, cancelled it and issued a bench warrant for his arrest anywhere in Nigeria.

The re-arrested IPOB leader is scheduled to appear in Federal High Court to continue his trial.

Some Nigerians have however regard chants of thanks to the government in accordance to this action. Some even took to the Twitter media to demand that the government ensure that the IPOB leader did not flee again.

Here are some of those tweets

@sunnyman: “This is a welcomed development, I commend the government for arresting Kanu. His arrest shows Buhari is in charge.”

@CNB atinsola: “Nnamdi Kanu’s rearrest will mark the end IPOB and all these rubbish agitations. He is not above the law, should be dealt with.”

@omukoko: “Kanu’s arrest would send a message to agitators like Sunday Igboho and co that Nigeria is not a Banana Republic where they can just stand up and start causing trouble.”
