According reports that has emerged online, Usman urged Nigerians to ask the younger brother and lawyer to the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor of Kanu’s whereabouts.
The Army spokesman also said Kanu was somebody without any means of livelihood, but used “propaganda” to attract public sympathy.
Speaking in Abuja, while rounding off a two-day media conference on the military’s enhancement of human rights, Usman said Kanu’s followers were in a “one-chance vehicle.”
He made these remarks while insisting that the IPOB leader was not in custody of the Nigerian military.
According to Usman, “There was an allegation that somebody (Kanu) went into hiding. Now, I can’t remember the day but in an interview on Channels TV, one of Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brothers said that he was in hiding and he knew where he was.
