“Nnamdi Kanu is not in the custody of the military” – Defence Spokesperson

Nnamdi Kanu

The spokesman of the Defence Headquarters (DHQ), Major General John Enenche says the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is not in the custody of the Military.


  • On Wednesday, Kanu’s lawyers asked the federal high court, Abuja to compel the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai to produce Kanu.

But speaking with journalists on Friday, Eneche said it was not the responsibility of the Army to declare Kanu wanted – the Army did not proscribe IPOB as its job is to diagnose security issues.

Key excerpts:

  • Nnamdi Kanu is not in the custody of the military.
  • It is not the responsibility of the military to declare Nnamdi Kanu wanted. The military did not proscribe IPOB. Due process was followed to proscribe it. The job of the military was to diagnose security issues and warned the public of consequences and that is part of our media operations.
  • We did our media operations very well, otherwise that weekend would have been the longest weekend in this country and we are also very careful choosing our words and we know the law very well.”
