The federal Govt is targeting Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s collaborators and sponsors to serve them justice, a spokesperson said today.
Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced at a conference that identities of the sponsors were uncovered.after Kanu’s interception.
He statement implied that there are high society persons among the alleged backers.
Mohammed said government discovered a “trove of information” that it will use to go after Kanu’s alleged sponsors.
“We can tell you that the forensic investigation carried out so far has revealed a trove of information on the proscribed IPOB leader and his collaborators.
“While investigation continues, we assure you that none of the collaborators, irrespective of their standing in society, will be spared.
“They will face full wrath of the law for their activities that challenge our nation’s sovereignty and threaten its unity.
“No one, no matter how highly placed, is bigger than the country,” Alhaji Lai said.
Mohammed acknowledged that government has been inundated with enquiries about circumstances of Kanu’s arrest.
But he, like the Justice Minister, also but failed to provide the information.
“There have been speculations on how this re-arrest was pulled off and in which country … (he) was nabbed.
“What we can tell you, once again, is that the re-arrest was made possible by the diligent efforts of our security and intelligence agencies, in collaboration with countries with which we have obligations.
“We continue to respect and honour the obligations,” he said.
Legal experts suggest that government hides this information because it used unorthodox methods to intercept amd bundle Kanu into Nigeria.
