The British High Commission in Nigeria has said the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was not arrested in the United Kingdom.
The AGF, however, failed to state how and where the IPOB leader was arrested.
Responding to questions from one of our correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday, the spokesman, British High Commission in Nigeria, Dean Hurlock, said, ‘We are aware of reports that Nnamdi Kanu has been detained in Nigeria by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
We can confirm that Nnamdi Kanu was not arrested in the UK for extradition purposes.”
Meanwhile, Kanu who was arraigned before a Federal High Court on Tuesday was ordered to be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Service.
His trial was adjourned to July 26 and 27 by Justice Binta Nyako.
