Following the arrest and repatriation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria, the British government has dared the federal government to lay bare the circumstances, including where and how he was arrested.
The Biafran struggle widely acclaimed for its fighting the status quo, biased and nepotistic appointments of Buhari’s kinsmen to most public parastatals has met the stiff resistance of the government. This is despite the renewed agitation of the Ibo people, under the leadership of Kanu for self-determination.
Kanu’s counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor attested to the inhuman treatment his client was subjected to before being repatriated to the country where he is currently facing charges of treasonable felony.
The said Kanu who on escaping from Nigeria four years ago, propagated secessionist initiatives via his online television station could have also been a victim of the attack carried out on his country home, Afara Ukwu, Abia State.
He was tracked, brought before the court on the 29th day of June.
According to UK government, “We are seeking clarification from the Nigerian government about the circumstances of the arrest and detention of Nnamdi Kanu,” said Tariq Ahmad, a junior minister at Britain’s Foreign Office.”
The UK government is aware of the confusion behind the circumstances surrounding Kanu’s arrest, considering the denial of the said development by the Kenya’s ambassador to Nigeria.
Ahmad, a lawmaker attested to the fact that the British government has signified interest in providing consular assistance for Nnamdi Kanu.
