Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation during the Goodluck Jonathan administration, has warned the federal government about the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The former minister, who is close to the IPOB leader, has warned that he must not die in detention.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode urged the Federal Government to ensure Kanu is treated with decency and respect while in custody.
“The arrest and detention of @MaziNnamdiKanu is no longer news. “I urge the FG to ensure that he is not killed in custody and that he is treated with decency, decorum, and respect,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the British High Commission has issued a statement in response to the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
Dean Hurlock, a spokesperson for the British High Commission, told TheCable that Kanu was not picked up in the UK, where he is based.
“We can confirm that Nnamdi Kanu was not apprehended in the UK for extradition purposes,” Hurlock wrote in a text message.
