Nnamdi Kanu Remains In Detention As He Was Discharged, Not Acquitted, Says National Security Council

The National Security Council (NSC) on Friday said that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will remain in detention despite the Court of Appeal verdict because he was only discharged by the court and not acquitted.

Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, told journalists after the NSC meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja that any new position of the government will be known in due course.

According to the Minister, “similarly, the issue of Kanu has also been raised and Council was briefed on the state of things on the matter and it was observed that Kanu was discharged, but he was not acquitted.

“So, the government is considering the appropriate action to be taken on the matter and Nigerians will be notified of the position that will finally be taken on the matter in due course.”
