By Chibuike Nwabuko

Abuja (Sundiata Post) –  Defence Headquarters has reacted to issue of whereabout of  the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, declared that he is not in military custody.

DHQ spokesperson, John Enenche, who made the declaration while addressing journalists on Friday, said that it was not the responsibility of the military to declare Kanu wanted.

Eneche maintained that the whereabouts of the IPOB leader was unknown.

According to Enenche, “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.”

Following an alleged military invasion of his residence in Umuahia on September 14, Kanu has not been seen or heard from.

Sundiata Post recalls that shortly after military’s declaration of IPOB as a terrorist organisation, a human right lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Mike Ozekhome and other legal luminaries, faulted the declaration, saying the military has no such powers under the constitution.
