Oyogist has learned that the British High Commission including a law firm in London, Bindmans, have commenced plans to take up the case regarding the illegal arrest and Detention of IPOB LEADER, Nnamdi Kanu.

Lead counsel for NNAMDI Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor, had reportedly delivered two forms to Kanu on Wednesday during a visit to the office of the Department of State Services, where he is being detained.

Ejimakor said;

“I went to visit DSS on Wednesday and went with two forms. One was the consular consent form that the British High Commission required that he signs to consent to consular assistance. There was also a form from his counsel in the UK. The firm is known as Bindmans, one of the largest law firms in the UK.

“The forms will open a whole new chapter of legality, including the filing of a Writ of Mandamus, against the Nigerian government in a UK court to compel it to produce Kanu, because his detention is illegal under the British law. It was an extraordinary rendition, which is an international crime by which a state kidnaps a suspect or a fugitive without the due process of law.

“They will be filing all these processes in the UK and there is a prospect of a UK court assuming universal jurisdiction or extraterritorial jurisdiction and reaching into Kenya so that they can arrest every Kenyan official, either authorised or not, and every Nigerian official involved in this case.”

He said the DSS collected the forms, saying they must first go through the vetting of its legal unit.
