Exclusive: How Nnamdi Kanu was arrested, bundled to Nigeria – Reno Omokri spills

According to former presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested in the United Kingdom (UK) as reported by the Federal Government of Nigeria.


The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN) had disclosed that Kanu was arrested and brought back to Nigeria on Sunday.


He said the arrest followed a collaborative effort between security agencies in Nigeria and Interpol.


However, Reno Omokri has claimed otherwise, according to him, Kalu was arrested in Kenya and it was an illegal intention.


Taking to his verified Instagram handle, Reno revealed further, “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.” 


Kanu faces trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.
