The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, has reacted to the ongoing trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Catriona Laing disclosed that the British Commission has offered consular assistance to embattled Kanu. The British High Commissioner spoke while appearing on Arise Television, on Tuesday.
According to the words of the British High Commissioner to Nigeria Catriona Laing; “On Nnamdi Kanu, all I would say is that we are on record of saying that we can offer consular assistance to British nationals as requested. That is all I am prepared to say in this interview.
”I haven’t said anything about his trial. What we have said on record is that we would do all we can to offer consular assistance to him and as we speak we have already offered consular assistance to Nnamdi Kanu,” she stated.
Nnamdi Kanu was recently rearrested and repatriated from an unspecified African country to Nigeria. Upon his return, Nnamdi Kanu was remanded in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS). The order was given by Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court.
However, DSS failed to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court during Monday’s resumed proceedings which made the court to adjourn his case till 21st October 2021. DSS had informed the court that Nnamdi Kanu could not be produced in court due to issues of logistic.
