Kanu's Arrest: UK Government To Query Kenya Government Over Alleged Role In Kanu's Arrest

The United Kingdom Parliament would be sitting today to debate and querry the alleged involvement of Kenya Government in the arrest and repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria.

Meanwhile a report on Punch revealed that the UK Government had made it clear that Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested in UK, and they were not aware of the arrest.

Recall that few days to a week ago, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) was rearrested and brought back to Nigeria to continue his trials, which he had allegedly jumped since 2017.

His arrest was a great surprise to any ear that hears about it, as Kanu had not been seen in Nigeria since 2017 that he disappeared from the country.

Many wondered how the security Operatives managed to arrest him even while he was not in Nigeria; some thought, maybe Kanu was arrested while he was returning to Nigeria.

But some reports later alleged that Kanu was arrested in Kenya; according to the claim of Kanu's lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, he said Kanu was arrested and detained for 8 days by Kenya Police before he was eventually handed over to Nigerian Security Agents.

The lawyer continued his claims and alleged that Kanu was subjected to all sorts of dehumanizing treatments by Kenya Police, before he was handed over to Nigerian Security; where he also continued facing the same inhumane treatment.

Seeing how these similar complaints were coming from many people especially the IPOB supporters, the UK Government started feeling concerned, because Kanu is their citizen, and was actually traveling British passport.

Meanwhile, some Kenyan personalities including the Kenyan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage, on several occasions denied the alleged role of Kenya Government in Kanu's arrest.
