Legit.ng recalls that a video showing the IPOB leader inspecting a group of men called the Biafra Secret Service (BSS) had gone viral on the internet.
The footage showed some of the purported BSS officers dressed in black attire and red beret.
Kanu could be seen walking around and in between them, inspecting what can be described as a guard of honour.
Reacting to the development, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General SK Usman said the issue was being addressed by the military.
The army spokesperson made the statement on Tuesday, August 22, in a tweet after a Twitter user demanded to know what the army was doing about the issue.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators, John Duku, has told Igbo people not to trust Nnamdi Kanu to help them achieve Biafra.
Duku said this while re-emphasising the October 1 quit notice his group issued to Hausa and Yoruba people in the Niger Delta in an interview with Punch.
Duku, who claimed the Igbos were not affected by the quit notice from the Niger Delta, said Kanu was just deceiving a lot of people from the south-east with his agitation.
He also said his group was not issuing an ordinary threat.
In the video below, Legit.ng TV asked some Nigerians what they think about the inauguration of the Biafra Security Service (BSS) by Nnamdi Kanu.
