Nnamdi Kanu: British govt worked with those who kidnapped IPOB leader in Kenya – Lawyer

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has insisted that the British Government collaborated with those who rearrested the pro-Biafra agitator.

Ejiofor disclosed this while stressing that the British Government has not visited Kanu still held in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

Kanu was recently rearrested and repatriated from an undisclosed African country believed to be Kenya.

Upon his return to Nigeria, Kanu is currently held in a DSS facility in Abuja.

Following his rearrest, the British High Commissioner in Nigeria expressed its readiness to provide consular assistance to Kanu.

However, Ejiofor disclosed that the British High Commission was yet to see the IPOB leader.

In a series of tweets, Ejiofor dismissed reports 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.”
