Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the lawyers representing the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that the British government may be complicit in the travails of his client.
Ejiofor made this allegation on Wednesday during the Morning Show programme on Arise Television.
He alleged that there was a connivance with the British government.
Ejiofor said, “I can confirm to you that the British High Commission is not doing much about this case. I can confirm to you that there is every likelihood of connivance in what happened to my client.
“Because sometime in 2015 when my client was arrested, I know how they were keeping constant communication with him and visiting him regularly, both when he was in military detention and when he was in DSS custody and he was transferred to the prison.
“As at the time he was arrested, he was arrested as a British national because he had renounced his Nigerian citizenship over five years ago. And they are still talking about offering him consular services,” he said.
