IPOB: 'Mrs Nnamdi Kanu Is Dreaming' - Lai Mohammed
So, the Federal Government has reacted to the interview that Nnamdi Kanu’s wife, Mrs Uchechi Kanu granted BBC Igbo Service.
Madam Kanu had during the interview alleged that it is only the federal government that can tell where the self-acclaimed IPOB leader is.
But the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has denied the allegations, saying it is Mrs. Kanu who should tell Nigerians where her husband is.
“She is dreaming. In fact, her accusation is baseless,” Mohammed said.
In reaction to accusation by Kanu’s wife that he said it is the footage of the army invasion of what happened in other African countries, that IPOB was circulating, Mohammed said “there was never a time he spoke about Operation Python Dance”.
He maintained that it was Mrs Kanu that should tell the whereabouts of her husband and that all enquiries should be directed to the Attorney General.
During the interview, Madam Kanu said: The Army “is saying that they don’t know where he is. Lai Mohammed has said the government does not have him and that the footage of the army invasion that IPOB was circulating, was what happened in other African countries.
“When Nnamdi Kanu was arrested for the first time in 2015, I demanded for his whereabouts, but they told me they had no idea. At the end of the day, they brought him out.
“If someone does something for the first and second times and denied them, when he does the third one, if he denies it, would you believe him?”
