UK passport, not Nigerian passport as originally claimed by the Federal government of Nigeria
A source privy to how Kanu was illegally kidnapped in Kenya and brought to Nigeria by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has revealed that “it was only his Kenyan-based phone that was seized upon his arrest”.
The source said his “passport and three (major) phones plus laptop were not with him during the time he was kidnapped”.
Also according to the source, Kanu was arrested in an “Audi TT with licence plate number KCV 100 K”.
IgbereTV had reported, quoting a top source who spoke to SaharaReporters, that “Kanu had arrived in Kenya and settled down in a house. On June 19, 2021, he drove himself in a car to the international airport to meet a person arriving in the country for a high-level IPOB meeting.
“He drove into the underground parking lot at the airport and was arrested before exiting the car.
“He was taken to a house and brutalised for 8 days while the Nigerian authorities perfected how to forcefully relocate him to Nigeria.
“He was travelling on a British passport, not a Nigerian passport as alleged by Malami. He was brought into Nigeria on a Saturday and arraigned on Monday.
“Buhari upon learning of his abduction decided to cancel his trip to the UK to manage the diplomatic fallouts at home instead of going to London.
Meanwhile, the United Kingdom Parliament is set to commence a debate on the Illegal Extradition, Nnamdi Kanu.
The British government had clarified that Nnamdi Kanu, who was travelling with a British passport, was not arrested within its shores.
