” Nnamdi Kanu is not a Nigerian citizen and so therefore, Nigerian courts lack jurisdiction to prosecute him, the alleged radio broadcast according to Malami where he instigate violence were broadcasted in UK so If UK government find him guilty they should be the ones to arrest him or if Nigeria thinks he broke any of their laws they should have applied for UK to capture him and try him not kidnapping him in Kenya” , those were the exact words of Ejiofor the head lawyer of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra after the 21st October trial.
Speaking on UK citizenship do you think UK has done enough for his release? Recall that UK visited him in DSS custody but they were prevented by DSS from seeing him and till now we have not heard anything from them.
The British Government has yet to have consular access to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who was repatriated to the country about four months ago.
However, the British High Commission in Abuja stated it was taking steps to ensure Kanu’ s consular access. Dean Hurlock, Head of Communications at the British High Commission in Abuja, told the Daily Sun in Abuja about the development.
In response to a question from the Daily Sun on Kanu’ s ongoing trial, he said the UK government does not comment on ongoing judicial processes. The British High Commission was also in communication with the Federal Government, Kanu’ s family, and his legal team, according to Hurlock.
” We keep in touch with the Nigerian authorities on a regular basis, as well as his family and legal representation. ” We’ re working to ensure consular access is secure. ”
Kanu was extradited to Nigeria on June 27 as part of his ongoing prosecution in an Abuja High Court. He is facing allegations of terrorism, treasonable felony, and incitement in front of Justice Binta Nyako.
