The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Tuesday shocked many when the news of his arrest broke out on social media.

In a short ruling on Tuesday, the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako ordered that Kanu be remanded based on an application that was brought by the Federal Government.

Justice Nyako ordered that Kanu should remain in custody till July 26 when his trial will resume.


In 2019, Nnamdi Kanu averred that he’s not a Nigerian citizen, adding that he’ll challenge every move by the Federal Government to convict him becuase he has done nothing wrong.

Disclosing this in a programme on ‘Radio Biafra’, Kanu opined that he would challenge the court order directing his arrest in the UK.


Recall that a federal high court in Abuja on March 29, 2019, revoked the IPOB leader’s bail for his continued absence in court. The same court also issued an arrest warrant against the IPOB leader.

But reacting to his arrest warrant, Kanu according to Thecable, said, “The revocation of my bail will never ever hold; they can never convict us because we have done nothing wrong.

“Every move they make, every decision they take, I will challenge. I have instructed my lawyers, we will challenge in a competent court of law here in Britain where law actually works. I am waiting for them.

“Any day you instruct INTERPOL, that day I will take it up in court and they must answer because here is a civilised country.


“First, I am not a Nigerian citizen. Your bail revocation will never ever work. Anybody interested in revoking my bail would have asked the army what they were doing in my place.”
