Man Asks Court To Arrest, Repatriate Nnamdi Kanu From UK


Mr. Kenneth Ugochukwu, a relative of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has filed fresh application in the Federal High Court Abuja seeking Kanu’s arrest and repatriation from the United Kingdom.

Ugochukwu is also asking the court for an order directing the attorney-general of the Federation to advise President Muhammadu Buhari to declare the British High Commission as persona non grata for complicity in harboring a fugitive from justice in the United Kingdom.

Joined in the case with the suit is the British High Commission, the Comptroller of the Nigerian
Immigration Service and the Attorney-general of the Federation.

The plaintiff is also seeking the arrest of the lawmaker representing Kanu’s Senatorial District, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and other co-sureties for his bail, if the IPOB leader fails to appear in court on the next adjourned date of October 17th, 2017.

Justice John Tsoho will on Thursday, October 12 hear the application in Abuja.
