Nnamdi Kanu: IPOB members protest at British Embassy, submit petition (Photos)
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, held a protest against the arrest of their leader, Mazi Nnandi Kanu at the British Embassy in Ireland.
The IPOB members called for the release of Kanu, who was arrested in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria last month.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami at a press briefing stated that the IPOB leader was arrested on through the joint efforts of the intelligence and security services.
“Self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed secessionist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Kanu, has been intercepted through the collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and Security Services,” Malami said in a statement.
“He has been brought back to Nigeria, in order to continue facing trial after disappearing, while on bail regarding 12 count charge against him.
During the protest, the members submitted a petition against the Nigerian Government describing Kanu’s arrest as illegal.
They accused the government of kidnapping Kanu and forcing him back to the country.
