The UK Parliament is about to start a debate on the extradition Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, from Kenya to Nigeria today.
IPOB had accused the Buhari regime of abducting its leader in Kenya, with the help of Kenya’s Special Police Force. They also accused the Kenya’s Special Police Force of torturing him before he was handed over to the Nigerian government.
But Kenya had through Kenya’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage, refuted claims that Kanu was arrested in their country.
But the UK Parliament posted on its website that it will set aside a debate on Wednesday, July 7, to discuss the British Government’s assessment of Kenya’s role in Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest.
According to the document, Lord Alton of Liverpool will be raising the issue at the House of Lords and will query the government on the separatist leader’s transfer to Nigeria.
“Lord Alton of Liverpool to ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of (1) the alleged role of the government of Kenya in the detention and alleged mistreatment of Nigerian activist Nnamdi Kanu, (2) the circumstances surrounding the transfer of Mr. Kanu to Nigeria against his will, and (3) of any assistance being provided to him by the High Commission in Abuja. HL1665,” the document read.
