The United Kingdom parliament will debate the problems surrounding the return of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to a timetable posted on the UK parliament’s website, the UK parliament will address “the circumstances surrounding Mr Kanu’s transfer to Nigeria against his will,” as well as the alleged participation of Kenya’s government in the imprisonment and alleged abuse of the IPOB leader.
Lord Alton of Liverpool is expected to raise the issue at the House of Lords. It read:
“To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of (1) the alleged role of the government of Kenya in the detention and alleged mistreatment of Nigerian activist Nnamadi Kanu, (2) the circumstances surrounding the transfer of Mr Kanu to Nigeria against his will, and (3) of any assistance being provided to him by the high commission in Abuja.”
It was also revealed that the question tagged ‘HL1665’ was tabled on July 5, 2021 and will be “due for answer” by the “relevant government department” by July 19, 2021.
