Published

 on

nnamdi kanuThe detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu recently wrote a letter to the British Government seeking the Government’s assistance in securing his release from DSS detention. (Click here if you missed it)

Reports have it that the UK government responded to Kanu in an email sent to Punch saying they have been following his case since his detention in October 2015.

Spokesperson for the British High Commission Joe Abuku in the mail said, “We have provided assistance to Mr. Kanu since his arrest in October last year, including visiting him regularly in prison and attending court appearances in an observation capacity. It is repeating the obvious to state that our client is a full British citizen, by virtue of which position he is entitled to all rights, privileges and protection, guaranteed under the British laws and conventions.”

    ..and these sensless Biafra enthousiasts are trying to die ontop this man matter… this nigga aint loyal.. the moment he is in trouble he claims british citizenship… if he was such a good leader, why doesnt he come to nigeria and fight for biafra here? all the people that are doing all the ground work here in Nigeria do not have another citizenship to fall back on, yet they will want to die for a useless cause. which African leader have you heard of that runs away to another country and starts claiming citizenship? please this man is a coward.. nothing more and anyone who supports him is clearly senseless

      Did you realize that the “Dear biafrans” by their claim on Biafra are denying Nigeria?

    When a British citizen who also has a second nationality commits a crime in the country of his second nationality, then the laws of that second country apply. The British government will only observe.

    Since Kanu was planning a stealth visit into the zoo, he should have publicly forfeited his right to being identified as a zoo animal from Nigeria. This would have placed him fully under the responsibility of Her Majesty the Queens government (the Original Zoo keeper whose ancestors designed the Zoo called Nigeria)

      @Timb- Exatly! Aside from that, everything is classed as “terrorism” nowadays. If dude is causing so much problem in Nigeria, I will not be surprised if the British government say he is not of “good character” and strip him of his nationality and then refuse to allow him enter the UK (The good character requirement is soo blessedly vague and there is no definition either legal or statutory of it so they like to employ it willy nilly to revoke citizenship) To look to the British government for help not only defeats the purpose of his ride or die Biafran status, but I doubt there will be help from that corner.

    so was he expecting the British govt, to order Nigerian govt to release him …. \\ on what basis was the involvement of the British govt.. AM sure the British govt will not close their eyes and support you blindly when they know you can come over there and still be fighting your cause and cause dismay to them also.

      What do you know about dual citizenry? Stop talking just for talking sake.. Get educated and explicitly understand certain things…

    If moses in d bible didnt leave egypt to join his Hebrew brethren to fight the Egyptians,he wouldn’t ve succeeded in bringing the Israelites out of the land of Egypt.

      …but when the going got tough, Moses did not ask his brother the prince of Egypt to save him na. He stayed with the Israelites through thick and thin. If we are going to use the bible, lets go all the way. lol
      So if your analogy is that this brother came to Nigeria to fight for the Biafrans, it wasn’t well thought out especially if he is seeking to use his British citizenship card.. How many so called Biafrans are British Citizens and can afford to do the same?

      What is this one saying? Can’t make any sense out of your comment lol. Very sentimental Africans and you even comparing this situation with some Jewish fairy tale actually makes you guys very laughable. Remember “United we stand divided we fall”

      Actually, I respect the man. It takes guts to speak out fearlessly against the corrupt British edifice called Nigeria. Most of us complain silently in our bedrooms; but along comes a man who has looked at the British Republic of Islamic Nigeria eyeball to eyeball and exposed the dirty roots of the tottering jungle called Nigeria. Let the truth be told – relief and true nation hood for us will only come if we rediscover who we all were before the British came and placed us all in a prison called Nigeria. The signs of Nigeria’s fall are very clear. Remember Noah’s ark. When the floods of Nigeria’s dissolution finally come, many who refused to enter because they doubted will be caught by surprise.

      Unite with buhari and so call herdsmen attitude in this country? No way just go and tell buhari to resign if unity is needed in this country.let some leader who regards every tribe in this country as one come and lead the nation then peace will rain.

      What you solemnly care about is the devious & damn unity of Nigeria with Igbos… You dumb asses know the real reasons why you insist that Igbos must be part of you.. We don’t want your pretentious unity anymore… We are getting off it to being on own own.. Believe or not, it has started and it shall be..

    I can’t understand how almost all Nigeria think & behave alike. They prefer to die suffering than to say or support truth. Read comments of fools as they condemn Biafra restoration without considering all the killing of Biafrans both in the North by Hausa, deliberate burning of their shops
