We Are Taking Steps To Secure Consular Access To Nnamdi Kanu – UK Govt Reveal

Almost four months since the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to the country, the British Government is yet to have consular access to him. But the British High Commission in Abuja, however, said it was taking steps to secure consular access to Nnamdi Kanu.

Head of Communications, British High Commission in Abuja, Dean Hurlock, disclosed the development to Daily Sun Newspaper in Abuja.

Responding to Daily Sun Newspaper regarding the ongoing trial of Nnamdi Kanu, he said the UK government does not comment on ongoing legal proceedings. Dean Hurlock, further said the British High Commission was in contact with the Federal Government of Nigeria, Nnamdi Kanu’s family and his legal team.

According to the words of British High Commission in Abuja, Dean Hurlock; “We are in regular contact with the Nigerian authorities and remain in contact with his family and legal representatives. We are taking steps to secure consular access on Nnamdi Kanu.”

Nnamdi Kanu was extradited to the country on June 27, 2021 in continuation of his trial at an Abuja High Court. He is standing trial before Justice Binta Nyako on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony and incitement.
