Wow! British Government Questions the Legality of Nnamdi Kanu’s Arrest, See her Next Line Of Action
Following the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra last Sunday by Nigeria’s security agents and Interpol, the United Kingdom has said it will seek clarification from the Federal Government on the circumstances and legality of the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu.
This hint was dropped by the Head of Communications, British High Commission, Mr Dean Hurlock while responding to enquiries from the journalists; he maintains that the UK was in the process of seeking explanations from the Federal Government on the circumstances surrounding Kanu’s arrest and extradition.
It is a well-known fact that Kanu, who is also a British citizen, was not arrested within its territory, and the UK needs further clarifications on his arrest and extradition.
Earlier, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel to the detained IPOB leader, said members of the legal team had made a frantic effort to get access to their client by formally applied to the Department of State Service.
It could be recalled that Kanu, who is hitherto facing trial for treasonable felony, jumped bail in 2017 and fled the country when soldiers stormed his parents’ residence at Afaraukwu, Abia State.
However, Nnamdi Kanu was on Tuesday, was re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, two days after he was arrested and extradited to the country.
Meanwhile, Kanu is reported to have been remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services by the Federal High Court until the 16th of July, when his case would be heard.
