The lead counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor has revealed how the British government collaborated with the Federal Government of Nigeria to kidnap the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ejiofor alleged that the British government is evidently in bed with Federal government because they are yet to visit Kanu who is still in custody of Department of State Services, DSS in Abuja.

Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in an African country (purpotedly Kenya, as suggested by his brother and legal team), and repatriated to Nigeria to face charges for treason and other related crimes.

After Kanu’s arrest, the British High Commission stated that it would provide consular assistance to the IPOB leader. However, Kanu’s lawyer has said that the High Commission was yet to see him.

Deal of the day

In a series of tweets, Ejiofor debunked rumours that officials of the British Government had visited the pro-Biafra agitator.

According to Ejiofor: “For your information, neither the British High Commissioner in Nigeria nor any one representing/acting for them has visited Our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at DSS detention facility, where he is currently being held incommunicado. I can authoritatively confirm this position to you today.

“Stop believing the falsehood being dished out in the public space by mischief makers. The purveyors of fake news have always been at it.

“When I talk about a collaboration between the British Government and those that kidnapped Our Client in Kenya, I meant every word spoken there.

“Thankfully, force of law has been activated through judicial process, before the British Court to ensure that their statutory obligation over their Nationale is asserted, without further ado.

“I see a handful of compromised social media platforms, who are ostensibly feeding fat from the National treasury. But the majority of distinguished media houses are guided by good conscience in their reportage.

“We definitely commend them. Always visit our social media handles for an accurate account of that is happening around our Client. May Chukwuokike continue to strengthen and protect him in this trying time.”
