by Victor Ndubuisi

Kingsley Kanu, a brother to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has urged the United Kingdom to demand the immediate release of the IPOB leader.

Kingsley said his brother is a UK citizen therefore Britain should not “tolerate the unlawful detention of British citizens”.

His statement came a day after the Nigerian government announced that Kanu had been arrested and extradited to the country for continuation of his trial on treason charges.

Kingsley revealed that Kanu was arrested in Kenya, reports FIJ.


He said, “My brother Nnamdi Kanu demands the right to self-determination for Biafra. Self-determination is the right to that underpins the United Nations.

“Because Biafrans support Nnamdi Kanu’s call for Biafran self-determination, my brother has now been subjected to the most serious violations of international law.

“My brother has been subject to extraordinary rendition by Kenya and Nigeria. They have violated the most basic principles of the rule of law.

“Extraordinary rendition is one of the most serious crimes states can commit. Both Nigeria and Kenya must be held to account. I demand justice for my brother, Nnamdi Kanu.”

He called on the British High Commission in Nigeria to insist on his brother’s freedom and reunion with his wife and family in the UK as he is a citizen of that country.

“The Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, must make clear to the Nigerian authorities that they will not tolerate the unlawful detention of British citizens and that the UK Government condemns the Nigerians and Kenyans for undermining the rule of law.

“Foreign Secretary Raab must be clear. There will be consequences for those who resort to extraordinary rendition. The British Government must insist upon justice for Nnamdi Kanu.”Kingsley
