 Nigeria In Dilemma  Over Jurisdiction To Try Nnamdi Kanu

The fact that Nnamdi kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was internationally kidnapped, is enough reason why he may likely not sit for any trial in Nigeria court.

Though his kidnappers will rather frustrate judicial orders since they also control the Nigeria judiciary, they will be ignorantly doing so to the good of their captive.

Therefore, if the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), wants to save the life of their leader (Kanu) as fast as possible, their legal team should file cases against both the Nigerian and Kenyan governments, hanging on the following points:

(1) Kidnapping Kanu is against his human right. And further considering how this was done by the Nigerian and Kenyan states without any respect for due processes goes on to make it a heavier crime.

(2) The violation of Kanu's freedom of expression, religion, association and movement as practical in the kidnap, illegal detention, severe torture and extraordinary rendition done by Nigeria and Kenya governments against his rights as enshrined in the United Nations (UN) charter, have to be answered for by the involved states.

(3) Kanu, being a British citizen and admitted into Kenya as such, ought to have been reported to the United Kingdom if  he were arrested for any offence worthy of rendition, instead of delaying and keeping him in secret room for eight ( good days in Kenya and over twenty (20) days so far in Nigeria Department of Security Services (DSS) room, wherein he has been subjected to terrible ill-treatments, ranging from staying blind folded for most of the days, roughly handcuffed, left on bare floor with chains on his two legs, etcetera.

(4)  The motive behind charging him to court blind folded, chained and handcuffed without the concept of his lawyers and subjugating him against his own will to appear as a lawyer for himself, should be questioned and allotted the appropriate international sanctions, because he is not a Nigerian citizen to start with, but British.

Nigeria and Kenya are both members of the Commonwealth of Committee Nations, but chose to deliberately violate the binding laws, which carries heavy sanctions in International Criminal Court (ICC) and the United Nations (UN) respectively.

Nnamdi kanu's lawyers should alert the Group six (G6) members of the Commonwealth in UN, of the deliberate kidnapping and illegal detention of their client against his own will and rights as a British citizen. This can as well be put in the class of assassination attempt of a British citizen.

All these charges should be prepared in line with the international constitutional law that governs the eyes of the Committee of Commonwealth Nations.

Holding such diplomatic passport, Nnamdi kanu's attorneys should as a matter of urgency, withdraw fixing trial in the hands of the masters of his kidnappers' den, and fix the trial in International Criminal Court (ICC), which controls the custodian that governs the body of common wealth nations and upholds the values and rights of a  British citizen with their passport. The only prayers and reasons of his kidnap is anchored on his own right, which is legitimately asking for a referendum to be granted the Biafran people. But thankfully, he was not arrested with a Nigerian passport.

So, Nnamdi Kanu's   attorneys should let ICC know what baseless claims the Nigerian government has against Kanu and that his arrest and dehumanization are only masks wearing and should be unveiled by ICC and Interpol, by inviting him to the world court.

If Nnamdi Kanu will not get unconditional release from the captivity of the Nigerian Security Services, then any hearing or court trial should be done in ICC, not in the Nigerian court which is controlled by the same people who kidnapped and have held him incarcerated in the hands of both Kenyan and Nigdrian Security Operatives.
