Nnamdi Kanu’s family criticizes UK’s silence on IPOB leader’s trial

 Nnamdi Kanu’s family criticizes UK’s silence on IPOB leader’s trial

Kanu's brother, Kingsley ‘Kanunta’ Kanu, made the position of the family known in a post on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

The family of Nnamdi Kanu, detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), have criticised the United Kingdom government's perceived silence over the continued detention of the agitator.

Kanu's brother, Kingsley ‘Kanunta’ Kanu, made the position of the family known in a post on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

In the tweet, the agitator's brother vowed that the indifference of the United Kingdom's government to separatist agitation in its former colony and its citizen, Kanu, would not stop the mission to achieve an independent state of Biafra.

“The UK should be guiding Nigeria on how to hold #Referendum on #Biafra independence Cos, any decision concerning Biafra self-determination does not rest with @MBuhari or @FCDOGovUK, it’s a matter for the Biafran people alone. Silence on Kanu’s case can’t stop what #MNK started,” Kanu wrote on his known Twitter handle.

Kanu is being held by the Department of State Services (DSS) at its headquarters in Abuja, after the Nigerian government repatriated him from Kenya in June 2021, an action his lawyers termed “illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional extradition.”

He is standing trial on charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
