BREAKING: UN Queries Buhari Government Over Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial


This online newspaper understands that the UN earlier today raised concerns on the detainment of Kanu by the Department of State Services (DSS) and his treatment in their custody.


The UN said it received information on allegations of enforced disappearance, arbitrary detention, torture, and ill-treatment of Kanu by Kenyan Security Officials, as well as his “illegal rendition” to Nigeria to face trial for terrorism-related charges, which were believed to be linked to his leadership of the controversial IPOB organization.


It added that since his rendition to Nigeria, Kanu, a Nigerian-British citizen had been denied necessary medical treatment for his underlying illness.


Giving update on his routine visit to Kanu, Ejimakor relayed Kanu’s message to the Biafra activist’s supporters, saying he salutes his brother, Kanunta Kanu and London-based law firm, Bindmans LLP. Bindmans LLP had been instructed by Kanu’s family to request that the British government provides consular assistance to Kanu and urgently take steps to intervene in his ongoing detention. Bindmans had written to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) requesting consular assistance for Kanu.

“I just concluded a visitation with #Onyendu. He salutes all Umuchineke for remaining focused on the mission of the moment. He’s happy with the ‘Urgent Appeals’ issued by the UN against Nigeria & Kenya & salutes @MaziKanuntaKanu & Bindmans for their efforts in this regard,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle.


The date of his next trial in Abuja is November 10.
