Former presidential aide, and best seller author, Reno Omokri, has countered federal government’s false narrative of how they arrested Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Omokri disclosed this via a post on his Facebook page and noted that UK cannot extradite someone no matter how wanted the person would be without extradition hearings before a court.
The attorney general of the federation, (AGF), Abubakar Malami, had on Tuesday. announced that Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was arrested in the United Kingdom and extradited to Nigeria to face trial over allegations of treason levelled against him by the Nigerian government
However, Omokri, in his reaction, debunked the claim by Malami and said that a top UK government source whom he wouldn’t reveal his identity, told him that the ritish government has no hand in the arrest of Nnamdi kanu and that he was not arrested in britain.
He said the official told him that Kanu was in Kenya and that “it was an illegal detention”.
His post reads;
“I just spoke with a top UK government source. Nnamdi Kanu was NOT arrested or extradited by the British. According to this official, Kanu was “almost definitely arrested in KENYA” and “it was an illegal detention”. I won’t reveal my source, but I have him on record.
For those who do not know how these things operate, the United Kingdom is a civilised nation that is governed by the Rule of Law. No one, no matter how wanted, can be arrested and extradited without extradition hearings before a court, especially when that person is a British citizen.
There are Nigerians who are currently fighting their extradition to Nigeria in court in the UK. They cannot leave the UK on their own volition or on the request of the Nigerian government until their hearings are exhausted. If they lose at the court of first instance, they have a right of appeal.
I repeat, Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested or extradited by the British government.
Also, it is a lie that he boarded a plane and came to Nigeria by himself. That is just propaganda.”
