Operation Egwu Eke II (Python Dance II) is not something the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will forget in a hurry. 

Their leader, Mr Nnamdi Kanu, is in hiding since September and that is a mystery that no one seems able to unravel.

But the Federal Government knows why Mr Kanu is hiding.

He wants to avoid the consequences of his action and that of his group, the Nigerian government told an Abuja Federal High Court

The Federal Government wants the Acting Chief Judge of the High Court, Justice Abdu Kafarati, to dismiss the motion IPOB filed to quash the proscription order.

Represented by the Solicitor General of the Federation, Dayo Akpata, the Federal Government insisted that there was no bloody onslaught in Kanu's house during the Operation Python Dance II, adding that it was not responsible for the whereabouts of the IPOB leader.

Akpata insisted that there was no report from security operatives to the effect that Kanu was missing.

He said: "Kanu has deliberately gone into hiding ostensibly to avoid his adjourned trial and also to avoid the likely legal consequences of the activities of himself and his group”.
