Biafra: I hope Nnamdi Kanu will show up soon – Falana | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has said he hopes Nnamdi Kanu will still show up so as not to jeopardize the liberty of the sureties who signed his bail papers.

According to him, Kanu may have left the country for the United Kingdom where he is also a citizen since his survival in Nigeria is risky.

He further said that he believes that the life of the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is in danger.

Falana told journalists: “Mind you, Nnamdi Kanu and his wife and children are British citizens. He may have left the country to join his family in the United Kingdom. While campaigning for Biafra he never threw away his British passport.

“I hope he has not run away so that he does not jeopardise the liberty of his sureties. It is an irony that Kanu, who is leading the struggle for the Balkanization of Nigeria, has dual citizenship, while Mr. Shettima Yerima, who gave the notice to quit to Igbo people in the North lives in Lagos.

“For sure, Kanu’s life may be in danger. When armed soldiers invaded Odi in Bayelsa State or Zaki Biam in Benue State, they killed scores of people.

“Everybody’s life in Nigeria is in danger. Nigerians are shot dead in their homes by armed robbers or on the roads by soldiers or policemen or by armed herdsmen on their farms. So, it is a risky business to survive in Nigeria.

“Even President Muhammadu Buhari had to be flown to Britain for medical attention because his life was in danger here. So, nobody is safe in our country.”
