Diapora Youths Seek Nnamdi Kanu Extradition From UK To Face prosecution In Nigeria.
The Forum of South East Youth Professionals in diaspora has called on the British high commissioer to Nigeria to ensure the extradition of Nnamdi Kanu back to Nigeria to answer for crimes against his Ibo people and the federal government.
Addressing a joint press conference via zoom, the group executive director, John Okafor maintained ” as South East Youth Professionals in the diaspora, we can no longer fold our arms to watch a desperate fellow continue to take advantage of our people.
In the face of ongoing allegations of embezzlement $2 million US dollars against Kanu by IPOB members from UK, it has become imperative that UK authorities facilitate his extradition back to Nigeria to face the law.
“Nnamdi Kanu is a shameless man who has taken an oath to demonize the country of his fathers birth, a man who has led in the destruction and killing of our youth at home, a man whose stock in trade is to mislead our enterprising youth population to take up arms against their own country, a man who is not a respectful of his own country’s laws, a man who demarkets his own country and devalues her before the world.”
Nnamdi Kanu is one man who has never survived outside blackmail, intimidation and outright mischief , however, we expect that there should be a limit to every thing. The group stated.
The group further said, even if, Kanu has no regard for patriotism,he should be restrained from dragging an entire ethnic group into shame.
” We are taking a bold step to call on the UK authorities to ensure the very damning reports of curruption against Nnamdi Kanu in addition to the many attrocities he caused in Nigeria with a view to facilitate his extradition to Nigeria for prosecution.
We will hold a mass rally at the British high commission to further press for our demands.
