AllNews recalls that Kanu, 54, was rearrested in Kenya in June, and was brought back to Nigeria.
Kanu, via IPOB, had been leading calls for the break up of Nigeria.
The Nigerian-British had been arrested in 2015 in Lagos when he travelled to Nigeria from his base in the diaspora. Having spent 18 months in prison, the Federal Government released him in April 2017. He was charged with treason and his case is still alive in court to date.
Later in 2017, Kanu fled Nigeria, on grounds of Nigerian army raiding his Abia State home, in the West-African country's southeast region.
