The United Nations has written to Nigeria and Kenya, requesting an explanation and extradition of Kanu.

The United Nations (UN) has made “urgent appeals” to the Nigerian and Kenyan governments to explain why Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was “unlawfully arrested and extradited.”

The UN stated in a paper dated August 26, 2021 that the Nigerian and Kenyan governments should submit details on Kanu’s capture and unlawful delivery to Nigeria.

Nnamdi Kanu’s brother, Kingsley Kanu, said in a statement to Sahara Reporters that he, along with the attorneys, prepared the UN interventions, which required the main points to be kept confidential for 60 days.

Kingsley said: “Following the extraordinary rendition of my elder brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, I undertook plenty of pressing steps throughout the realm of the worldwide neighbourhood, notably in Britain and the United Nations. I laboured quietly with my brother’s particular counsel, Aloy Ejimakor and the Bindmans (my brother’s attorneys in Britain) on a number of muscular interventions aimed toward presenting my brother’s case to the worldwide neighbourhood and facilitating his unconditional launch and bringing the culprits of his unlawful rendition to account.

“These interventions weren’t made identified to most people as a result of the relevant guidelines, particularly that of the United Nations, required them to be stored confidential for 60 days.”

MEANWHILE, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied allegations that its ad-hoc members of staff for November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State have resigned en-masse.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Nwachukwu Orji, said the report was false and did not have any credibility, assuring that the commission is on course to deliver a credible election in the state.
