75 Northern groups declare Kanu wanted, place N100m bounty on IPOB leader

A coalition of 75 Northern groups under the aegis of Northern Consensus Movement on Thursday, declared the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wanted, placing a bounty of N100 million for persons who can produce him.

They said this became imperative so that Kanu could be produced to continue his alleged trial for treason in Nigeria.

The groups, which announced this at a press conference in Abuja, accused Kanu and the Eastern Security Network (IPOB’s militia wing) of masterminding the recent spate of attacks on Northern communities in the Southeast via what they called ‘hate speech’.

Dr. Awwal Aliyu, who spoke on behalf of the coalition, called on the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the European Union to facilitate Kanu’s repatriation to Nigeria to face the charges against him.

According to Aliyu, “The Northern Consensus Movement, an amalgamation of more than 75 civil society groups of Northern extraction, has taken it upon ourselves, as active citizens of this country, Nigeria, to state in unequivocal terms that:

“We are declaring Nnamdi Kanu wanted for crimes against humanity and for instigating the killing of innocent Northerners in the southeast via his hate speech.

“We want him to answer for the killing and destruction of Northerners residing and undertaking lawful businesses in the southeastern part of Nigeria.

“So, we are placing a bounty of N100m as an offer to anyone who can produce him alive, hale, hearty, and uninjured to us for onward delivery to the security agencies for the continuation of his prosecution.
