No fewer than 75 Northern groups under the umbrella of Northern Consensus Movement, have declared a reward sum of N100 million for anybody who produces the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The group placed the bounty on Kanu’s head in the hope that he “continues his trial” over alleged treason.
NCIM accused Kanu and IPOB of being behind the attacks on Northern communities in th South East.
Spokesman for the NCM, Dr. Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu, during a press briefing held in Abuja on Thursday, asked for support from the United States, United Kingdom and European Union, to facilitate Kanu’s return to Nigeria to face treason charges.
He said, “The Northern Consensus Movement, an amalgamation of more than 75 civil society groups of Northern extraction, has taken it upon ourselves, as active citizens of this country, Nigeria, to state in unequivocal terms that: “We are declaring Nnamdi Kanu wanted for crimes against humanity and for instigating the killing of innocent Northerners in the South East via his hate speech. We want him to answer for the killing and destruction of Northerners residing and undertaking lawful businesses in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
“So, we are placing a bounty of N100m as an offer to anyone who can produce him alive, hale, hearty, and uninjured to us for onward delivery to the security agencies for the continuation of his prosecution.
“We call on both the US, the UK, and the EU, a champions of democracy, rule of law, and freedoms of speech and expression to kindly and humble respect Nigeria’s sovereignty and facilitate the repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria.
“This is so he can face his treason, and possibly fresh terrorism and genocide charges against innocent citizens of Nigeria.”
