Did Britain Sacrifice Nnamdi Kanu For Their Interest In Nigeria?

0

Several Nigerian activists, have expressed concern, over the silent arrest, and repatriation of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Former presidential candidate, and convener of Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowore, a known close associate of the Biafra agitator, reacting, have insisted that Nnamdi Kanu did nothing wrong, that warranted his arrest.

Another popular activist Aisha Yesufu, expressed her concerns over the extradition of the IPOB leader, without any legal warfare.

Tweeting about it on her social media account, she stated, ” Extradited without a fight? Or am I the one that missed the legal tussle? The law of the lid is real”

Aisha Yesufu observed that the British courts were independent, unlike the courts in Nigeria, where judgment can be bought.

She further sited the case of Abu Hamza, Khalid Al Fawaz, Abdel Bary, Babar Ahmad, Talha Ahsan and Secretary of State for the Home Department, who were extradited to US, observing that it took years of legal negotiations, before it was made possible.

Her observation, raised the question whether the British government, have sold off Nnamdi Kanu, to the Nigerian government, in an effort to preserve their interests in the country.

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu is a citizen of Britain, and such extradition, should have usually come after severe legal tussles.

But the British government’ s seeming support for his extradition, have raised eyebrows, pointing at some sort of collusion.

Nnamdi Kanu, despite being a citizen of Britain, may not have been their best citizen, as he constantly knocked the British government over the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates, that formed Biafra, amongst other issues be hit Britain over.

While the process of Nnamdi Kanu’ s arrest and repatriation remains sketchy, it could be recalled that General Muhammadu Buhari, when he was a military head of state, had attempted the forceful repatriation of Umaru Dikko from Britain.

Could this be such attempt by the Buhari administration? Was there legal agreement between the British and Nigerian governments, before the operation was carried out? These are questions that beg for answers.
