Nnamdi Kanu’s case gains momentum as UK parliament tables 3 topics of discussion for debate

The diplomatic spat between the UK government, Nigeria, and Kenya is poised to take a new turn, with the United Kingdom parliament scheduled to debate Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest.

The United Kingdom’s parliament is due to address the concerns surrounding the arrest and subsequent custody of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), according to the People’s Gazette.

Recall Kanu was arrested in a yet-to-be-disclosed country and repatriated to Nigeria.

Kanu until his arrest, was based in the UK, and being a citizen of the United kingdom, his arrest sent tongues wagging as his supporters questioned UK’s position and involvement in the issue.

This position was clarified by the statement given by the Head of Communications, British High Commission in Abuja, Dean Hurlock who confirmed that the government of the United Kingdom did not have a hand in the whole saga.

According to a parliamentary schedule, as seen by the news medium, a member of the UK house of parliament from Liverpool, Lord Alton is in charge of the deliberation as he will be raising the motion at the House of Lords.

From the schedule, the parliament will be tabling 3 important topics of discussion as it concerns Kanu’s arrest and repatriation.

The major topics of discussion will be:

(1) The alleged role of the Kenyan government as regards the detention and alleged maltreatment of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

(2) The circumstances surrounding the process and method by which Nnamdi Kanu was transferred to Nigeria.

(3) To confirm if any form of assistance has been provided for Nnamdi Kanu by the UK High Commission in Abuja.

Recall the UK high commission in Nigeria had earlier said that the government of the UK will give Kanu consular assistance.

Hurlock had also confirmed that the British High Commission in Abuja is currently in the process of seeking clarification from the Nigerian government about the circumstances of the arrest.

The outcome of the deliberations will decide many factors as it appears the Kenyan government will still have questions to answer as the UK has roped it into the discussion.
