Recently, the Nigerian government through the Attorney General of the federation Mr. Abubakar Salami released a statement that confirmed the re-arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Recall that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), a secessionist group that is dominant in the southeastern part of the country.
Hence, this arrest and extradition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government to face charges of a treasonable felony in a federal high court in Abuja have generated lots of reactions and comments and even most social usual comments have claimed that the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu will put an end to the agitations for Biafra nation.

However, according to Punch Newspaper report, the leadership of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Thursday, said that the re-arrest of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu would not affect the struggle for Biafra.
This statement by MASSOB isn't necessary at this point. The most important thing at this moment is dialogue and also seeking ways to restore peace and tranquility to the southeastern part of the country.
