Emmanuel Kanu, a brother to the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, said the arrest and extradition of his brother is a repetition of what President Muhammadu Buhari did to Umaru Dikko in 1984.
He described the action of the federal government as a “pure case of kidnapping and a repeat of what happened in 1984 when the same president attempted abducting Umaru Dikko.”
According to The Nation, Emmanuel said the IPOB leader was abducted as the federal government did not follow due process before taking him away from Kenya.
“It was not funny. Because when the news was broken to us, we had to ask a couple of questions which, up till now, nobody has provided answers to. Even the federal government has not.
“The question is what has he done to be abducted from Kenya? Did he commit any crime in Kenya? Was there any crime against him in the UK? If there were, there are processes to be met before taking somebody away from a particular country, which were obviously not followed.
“It is a pure case of kidnapping and a repeat of what happened in 1984 when the same president attempted abducting Umaru Dikko.
“The question that we are asking is what has he (Nnamdi) done? Who arrested him, because the Kenyan government has apparently denied arresting him.?”
