Kanu is in the custody of the Directorate of State Services (DSS), following his forced Rendition from Kenya, while Adeyemo is in the custody of Beninese authorities, who apprehended him on the request of the Nigerian Government, awaiting Extradition to Nigeria, pending the outcome of his appeal against his arrest and detention. Kanu, sequel to his recent Extradition, was already standing trial on multiple counts, but jumped bailalleging assassination attempts on his life.  Both men could face the death penalty if found guilty of the weighty allegations against them.

IPOB’s Ghost Monday directive initially received blanket support and compliance across the South East, but its subsequent negative multiplier toll on the economy and general wellbeing of the people soon became apparent, eliciting raucous public opprobrium against it, following which the secessionist group reviewed its initial stand by proceeding to issue a fresh directive that the sit-at-home should be observed only on the days Mazi Kanu is scheduled to appear in court.

Some clerics claimed it was N1 billion, N2 billion while some claimed it was N5 billion. When I inquired about the sources of the news, I was told that it was from the local chapters of IPOB who cited sources within the Presidency and DSS. The rumors of the betrayals by Barrister Alloy Ejimakor, Emeka Ejiofor, Emma Powerful and Edozien Madu have been rife since the third week of the sit-at-home order was cancelled, but how the misinformation persisted till date is what I cannot understand.
