Nnamdi Kanu: Wife begs Nigerian government for information

The wife of a Nigerian separatist leader who has been missing since last September has begged the Nigerian government for answers.

Uchechi Kanu told the BBC's Nkem Ifejika she believed the government knows where her husband Nnamdi - the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) movement - was being held after his home was raided by soldiers.

He failed to appear in court on treason charges in October.

Information Minister Lai Mohammed has told the new BBC Igbo service he had no idea of Mr Kanu's whereabouts.
