Cameroonian authorities have congratulated Nigeria on the re-arrest of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman said.

The spokesman Femi Adesina said Felix Mbayu, a special envoy from President Paul Biya of Cameroon, delivered the message during a visit on Tuesday.

“The Special Envoy said President Biya looked forward to a situation in which Nigerian territory would not be available for the Ambazonian movement to destabilize Cameroon, as some people are taking advantage of some crises in the two English speaking parts of Cameroon to break the country apart.

“He congratulated Nigeria on the recent arrest and repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) through collaboration of national security agencies and INTERPOL,” Mr Adesina said in a statement.

The Central African country is the first on the continent to congratulate Nigerian authorities on the matter.
