It is no news that Nnamdi Kanu has been apprehended by the Nigerian government and brought to Abuja where he is presently under custody and awaiting his trial on the 26th of July.
The IPOB leader had been fettered in chains and afterwards news broke out about his extradition from the British jurisdiction even though the news of his being taken from within the British province cannot be said to be true.
Kanu had travelled to Kenya with a British passport when Nigerian officials met with him and forcefully brought him to Nigeria. The people of Nigeria have been at two end s of the pole regarding whether or not the British government had participated in giving him out.
In a letter issued to the British Commissioner on Thursday from Kanu’s advocate, Kanu is meant to be protected by the British government and should have under no circumstances been coerced into coming to Nigeria since he is a citizen of the British government.
According to the letter issued, there has been no formal deportation of Kanu from within the Kenyan state, and even if that had existed, his deportation should have been to the British province since he is a British Citizen.
The letter states that Kanu’s involvement with Biafra and its restoration is not contradictory to both British and Nigerian laws since it can be perceived as a political opinion which can be legally backed up; as such, wrong to have coerced him to Nigeria.
