Biafra: Buhari Fidgets As UK Demands Nnamdi Kanu's Whereabouts, Says IPOB Not A Terrorist Organization

The United Kingdom, UK, has requested from the Nigerian government the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Intelligence report reaching IPOB reveals that President Muhamadu Buhari has been startled, confused and nervous since the UK launched an inquiry into Nnamdi Kanu's status and whereabouts.

UK, through her Press Officer, UK high commission in Nigeria, Joe Abuku, revealed to newsmen in Abuja that an official inquiry on Kanu's Whereabouts has been launched by UK government for Nigeria to produce Nnamdi Kanu, a Nigerian-British citizen, who has remained missing after the September 14th, 2017 invasion of his home residence, Afara-Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia.

“We are seeking urgent clarification from the Nigerian authorities about the status and whereabouts of Mr. Kanu, a British-Nigerian man, who has been reported missing since September 14,” Abuku told newsmen.

Abuku declared that IPOB, under UK's laws, is not a terrorist or outlawed organization hence UK does not support the proscription of IPOB and its classification as a terrorist organization by the Nigerian government.

Unlike Nigeria, he went further to state that an organization MUST meet proportionately with British Terrorism Act 2000 before it could be classified as a terrorist organization.

He said: “The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a proscribed organization in the UK.

“We do not routinely comment on whether an organization is or is not under consideration for proscription.

“A decision to proscribe an organization must be based on a belief that it is concerned in terrorism as defined in the Terrorism Act 2000, and it must be proportionate,” he said."

When asked whether Kanu would lose his citizenship in Britain as a result of the proscription of the organization which he leads, Abuku stated that Kanu, as well as other citizens, can only be stripped of their citizenship when he (they) engages/engage in terrorist activities.

He said: “One of the conditions that can make the United Kingdom strip its citizen of nationality is if the person engages in a terrorist activity at home or abroad. And Kanu has dual citizenship and therefore a citizen of Nigeria and the UK,” the mission stated.
