The Coalition of igbo-British lawyers has issued 48hrs altimatum to Nigerian Government and President Buhari to return IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu to the United Kingdom and if he has any charges to answer.
While condemning the FG action, the coalition said the manner in which the Kenyan Government has acted in the detention of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu and subsequent handing him over to the Nigerian Government without any due process was illegal and archaic.
This contained in a statement on Wednesday signed by Attorney E.R Okoroafor at his Glasgow residence in the United Kingdom.
According him, It is worthy of note to mention that Nnamdi Kanu entered Kenya with his British passport, and the Kenya government is fully aware of his citizenship status but still went ahead to perpetrated their illegal act which does not only breach the personal human rights of Nnamdi Kanu but also undermine the sovereignty of the British government.
“While this serves as a pre-action notice to the Kenyan Government as we shall be heading to the International Criminal Court to rectify the injustice done as it is trite law that injustice to one is injustice to all.
“We are also by this medium informing the Nigerian Government that they have 48hrs to return MAZI NNAMDI KANU to the United Kingdom and if he has any charges to answer to, they should as a nation that is governed by the constitution, pass through the legal means of filing an extradiction notice as failure to do so, we shall not hesitate to term this an a declaration of war on not only MAZI NNAMDI KANU and IPOB but on all IGBOS generally, and this we shall vehemently resist with all apparatus of law available at our disposal.
“While all this is been done the Nigerian government is also been warned that no bodily harm whatsoever must be done to MAZI NNAMDI KANU to avoid a total breakdown of law and other in the fast crumbling entity called Nigeria, he said.
