Former leader of separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has reportedly been spotted in Ghana, TheCable writes.
This comes after months of speculations over the whereabouts of the self-styled IPOB leader in the wake of the Operation Python Dance II in the south-east region by the Nigerian military.
Kanu hasn’t been seen in public since September 2017 before the military raided his country home in Aba, Abia State, leading to rumours he was killed in the controversial operation.
He also wasn’t present for his trial alongside three other IPOB members on a five-count charge of treason last week, prompting Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja to demand he be produced when court reconvenes March 28.
Following Kanu’s continuous disappearance, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who served as his surety when he was granted bail after spending 18 months in detention, has moved to be discharged from the obligation.
But in a sudden twist, security sources say he was ferried to the Niger Delta creeks by militants at the height of Python Dance II from where he found his way to Ghana by sea.
They added that he is regularly seen at Kenzo Bar and IBG saloon in Accra, disguised in hats and usually in company with his wife, Uchechi.
According to then security sources, the embattled IPOB leader resides at an area called Cantonment, also in Accra, at an estate called “Arabella”.
Meanwhile, IPOB, currently facing a leadership vacuum, has yet to react to the revelation by security operatives.
