BREAKING; UK breaks silence over rearrest of Nnamdi Kanu, explains its priority


July 17, 2021 | EASTERN PILOT 


The United Kingdom (UK) has said that, it takes very seriously allegations of human rights violations against British nationals.
The British High Commission in Abuja stated this in response to a statement by the counsel to the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor and Kanu’s family.

The United Kingdom also said it continued to seek clarification about the circumstances of the arrest of Kanu from the Nigerian Government.

Ejimakor had in a statement issued on Thursday, said no trial will take place until the issue of Kanu’s ‘illegal abduction’ was resolved.
Ejimakor said: “In my opinion, before any court can subject Kanu to trial, it has to first conduct a trial within trial on the grievous incident that forced him to leave Nigeria and the equally grievous incident that forced him back to Nigeria. No court of law with conscience and equity will overlook those two incidents and proceed to trial.”

Kanu’s younger brother, Kingsley Kanu, had also in a statement, said there would not be any court proceeding on July 26, until the issue of how his brother was arrested and brought back to Nigeria was addressed.
Responding to Saturday Sun’s enquiry, the Head of Communications, British High Commission, Abuja, Dean Hurlock, said: “The UK Government is aware of the ongoing detention of Mr Kanu.
“The UK has requested consular access to Mr Kanu from the Nigerian government, and we stand ready to provide consular assistance.

“As a British national, our current priority is Mr Kanu’s health, welfare and fair treatment.

“Our consular staff will always endeavour to give appropriate and tailored support to British nationals overseas, and to their families in the UK.

“The British High Commission in Nigeria stands ready to provide such assistance to Mr Kanu and his family in the UK. “The UK takes all allegations of human rights violations very seriously and raises concerns with local authorities where appropriate,” Hurlock said.
Hurlock further said it was very important to the Government of the United Kingdom that any trial or legal proceedings regarding Kanu followed due process.

  1. Nnamdikanu was kidnapped, abducted from Kenya against his wish as a British citizen and was rendited to Nigeria. It's called an extra ordinary rendition. KANU has no case to answer and must be released with immediate effect. Biafrans freedom is nonnegotiable. Peacful referendum is all we the people asked.

  4. This Dean Hurlock is playing politics with this situation.

    Has the consulate been to see Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, or was their request rejected by the nigerian government?

    They are aware of his health issues, aggravated and made worse by the conditions in which he is subjected currently.

    He is not a criminal, release him now before it's becomes too late.

    UK IN Nigeria, STOP PLAYING WITH WORDS. DO THE RIGHT THING FOR ONCE!!!

    DEMAND THAT YOUR CITIZEN, EXTRAORDINARILY RENDITIONED TO NIGERIA BE RELEASED FORTHRIGHT, UNCONDITIONALLY!

    If he has a case to answer in a nigerian court then nigeria should follow due process for extradition.

    He has been living in the UK for the past 4 years as a free man. Not wanted by Interpol, therefore he is not a fugitive. What gives?

    Please don't embarrass yourselves on the world stage.

  7. An illegality process cannot beget legal process. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu abduction from keyan was illegal, therefore, he should be released without any legal process. Then we can now begin to talk about legal proceedings, if there is any. Biafra must be free.

  9. Nigeria has proven that human beings in Nigeria are lower than animals suffering and killings of innocent continue . Biafrans are only seeking for referendum

  10. Secret project awarded by our Leader MNK and commissioned by World Igbo Congress, delivered by Igbo Tech Hub Inc USA. has finished work on the new currency for Biafrans.
    The new currency is borderless and accepted in all the countries of the world.
    It can be exchanged for goods, services, other government issued currencies & cryptocurrencies.

    The new currency is pegged 1:1 with the USD.
