National Daily gathered that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mallam Abubakar Malami (SAN), in Abuja on Tuesday, revealed that Kanu has been arrested in the UK and repatriated to Nigeria on Sunday.

The Minister explained that the arrest of Kanu was the outcome of a collaborative effort between security agencies in Nigeria and Interpol.

He said that Kanu has been taken before the Federal High Court in Abuja for the continuation of his trial on charges of terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

  1. And what did Britain do to make arrest of one of her citizens in London possible or impossible for a foreign country? If Kanu had been white born in Nigeria, will Britain not have required a public legal process of extradition be followed other than this jungle method of “arrest” without British warrant of arrest publicly issued in London courts or parliamentary hearings? I think Britain is d loser here bcus d international damage to Britain is so costly a risk! We are watching.
