Why Nnamdi Kanu cannot be released yet-FG

The Federal Government, has revealed to a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the reason behind its reluctance to release the detained  leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu who has been detained since his October 17 arrest, had filed an application before the high court, seeking to enforcing his fundamental right to freedom.
He alleged that the Nigerian government refused to release him from detention despite meeting his bail conditions.
The federal government, however filed a counter-affidavit, explaining why he will not been released, despite the clear orders of the court.
The government revealed that in the course of its investigations, it came to fore that Kanu, the brain behind the recent agitation for a Biafra state, had received huge sums of money to purchase weapons.
The government alleged that before his arrest, Kanu had made enquiries about prices of the weapons he intends to purchase.
In the counter-affidavit filed by a senior officer with the Department of State Services, Ayo Ibitoye, the government stressed that it would be in the interest of justice, peace and order, to allow Kanu remain in the custody of the security agency.
