Popular Lagos Lawyer and Human Rights Activist, Femi Falana has blasted the Federal Government for its version of the account of how it arrested Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and brought him back into the country.
According to Falana, the Federal government may have lied about the manner of the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu as they are capable of drugging him in order to get access to him. Falana has continued to fight for the rights of the ordinary Nigerian being trampled upon by the government.
Falana explained that how secessionist leaders, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are being treated is similar to how former Presidential Adviser, Umaru Dikko in 1984 was abducted in London.
He said: “We should not allow Buhari’s government take us back to 1984 when an attempt was made to kidnap Umaru Diko in London. He had already been kidnapped and on the way to the airport, a neighbour saw them and raised an alarm after witnessing the inhuman treatment he was subjected to.
“In the case of Kanu, Kenyan government cannot admit that on their soil a Nigerian was taken out of the country without going through the legal process. It’s likely they drugged him to sleep and brought him back to Nigeria.
“That is against the anti-torture act and Nigeria’s constitution. Therefore, those who say they brought Kanu back through some international collaboration are not telling the truth. Interpol cannot deport without due process.”
