The Federal Government has rearrested Nnamdi Kanu, acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indegenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who has been on the run after jumping bail.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Mr Abubakar Malami who announced this on Tuesday in Abuja said he was intercepted on June 27.

Kanu is expected to be re-arraigned before the Federal High Court for the continuation of his trial

Kanu who was put on trial on charges bothering on terrorism, treasonable felony and sponsoring unlawful organization had escaped from Nigeria shortly after his arraignment before the federal high court in Abuja and admission on bail.

Justice Binta Nyako who granted him bail on the ground of his ill-health had revoked the bail on march 28 , 2019 and issued a bench warrant for his arrest in any part of Nigeria.

He, however, confirmed that Kanu will appear before the federal high court today, for continuation of his trial.
