There is no doubt that one of the most trending news in Nigeria’s today is that Nnamdi Kanu has been arrested.
While many media and social Analysts are reporting from many angles, one of the African controversial Writers, Reno Omokri raised dust on the news.
Reno Omokri opined that Nnamdi Kanu was never arrested by Nigerian government alleging that it was a mere propaganda.
In his reaction posted on his official Facebook’s page, Reno Omokri says thus:
“I just spoke with a top UK government source. Nnamdi Kanu was NOT arrested or extradited by the British. According to this official, Kanu was “almost definitely arrested in KENYA” and “it was an illegal detention”. I won’t reveal my source, but I have him on record.
For those who do not know how these things operate, the United Kingdom is a civilised nation that is governed by the Rule of Law. No one, no matter how wanted, can be arrested and extradited without extradition hearings before a court, especially when that person is a British citizen.
There are Nigerians who are currently fighting their extradition to Nigeria in court in the UK. They cannot leave the UK on their own volition or on the request of the Nigerian government until their hearings are exhausted. If they lose at the court of first instance, they have a right of appeal.
I repeat, Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested or extradited by the British government.
Also, it is a lie that he boarded a plane and came to Nigeria by himself. That is just propaganda”.
