The Department of State Services(DSS) has divulged details on how its men apprehended the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and operator of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a bundle of court documents used in filing 6-count charge of treason against Kanu, Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, a DSS operative, Temisan John, who led a team that arrested Kanu on October 14, 2015 at the Golden Tulip Essential Lagos Airport Hotel, stated that but for the tenacity of its men, Kanu who lodged in a hotel in Lagos using fictitious name, would have escaped arrest.
Temisan said:”On arrival at the hotel, the staff denied having Kanu in the hotel or having any knowledge of him even when shown his photograph. The hotel’s guest manifests for about five days were also printed and the name was not found on any.
However, relying on accurate intelligence, the team decided to conduct a physical search on all the hotel rooms, leading to the arrest of Kanu in Room 303, where he was caught hibernating with a young girl named Maryam Ibezimakor, with all his broadcasting and communication gadgets set for use.
It was then discovered that Kanu checked in under the name NwanekaenyiEzebuiro. He was subsequently arrested and taken to the command headquarters.”
The DSS also detailed how arms and ammunition were recovered in the home of one of Kanu’s associates, Benjamin Madubugwuat Ubulusiuzor town, in Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra State.
Mohammed Ahmed, the DSS operative who led thesearch in Madubugwu’s house, said items recovered in the house located at Ubulusiuzor, Ihiala LG, Anambra State included “two pump action guns loaded with ammunition.
He described them as “one Emerald Pump Action gun, serial number: TS870-113-0046” and “one Delta Magnum Pump Action gun s/no: 501.”
