Reno Omokri has taken to his Instagram page to debunk reports, that the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested and extradited by the British government.
The author said he spoke with a top UK government source who confirmed to him that the British government was not involved in Kanu’s arrest or extradition.
His post below:
”I just spoke with a top UK government source. Nnamdi Kanu was NOT arrested or extradited by the British. According to this official, Kanu was “almost definitely arrested in KENYA” and “it was an illegal detention”. I won’t reveal my source, but I have him on record.
For those who do not know how these things operate, the United Kingdom is a civilised nation that is governed by the Rule of Law. No one, no matter how wanted, can be arrested and extradited without extradition hearings before a court, especially when that person is a British citizen.
There are Nigerians who are currently fighting their extradition to Nigeria in court in the UK. They cannot leave the UK on their own volition or on the request of the Nigerian government until their hearings are exhausted. If they lose at the court of first instance, they have a right of appeal.
I repeat, Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested or extradited by the British government.
Also, it is a lie that he boarded a plane and came to Nigeria by himself. That is just propaganda.”
