The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has cautioned the Nigerian government on the handling of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima cautioned the Nigerian government against allowing a situation that would lead to Kanu escaping again.
Shettima warned that Nigerians would be angry with the Federal Government if the IPOB leader escapes again.
Asked about the possibility of Kanu escaping again, Shettima said: “Escaping? I doubt it, the Nigerian government cannot take that kind of risk because if they do that Nigerians will be angry. I’m sure they would not do that.”
Kanu had in 2017 jumped bail granted him by Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court, fleeing the country.
The IPOB leader was, however, rearrested a few weeks ago and repatriated back to Nigeria to continue his trial.
On Tuesday last week, he was brought before Justice Nyako who remanded him in custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
