What Will Happen To Nnamdi Kanu’s Sureties If They Fail To Bring Him To Court — FG

What Will Happen To Nnamdi Kanu’s Sureties If They Fail To Bring Him To Court — FG

Nnamdi Kanu-Senator Abaribe

The Federal Government has revealed what will happen to the sureties of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

It also said it would not request for the extradition of Kanu from the United Kingdom.

Kanu was recently cited during a prayer session in Jerusalem, Israel but the Federal Government has ruled out his extradition to face his treasonable felony trial.

The leader of the outlawed group holds a dual citizenship of Nigeria and the UK and disappeared during the operation Python Dance in the South East in 2017.

Ujuayalogu'sBlog understands that the UK government allegedly told the Nigerian government that it wants to issue temporary travel documents to Kanu.

However, several sources at the Federal Ministry of Justice told Punch that there would be no need to ask UK to send the IPOB leader to Nigeria to face his trial.

“It is absolutely unnecessary. Remember that there is already an ongoing procedure before the Federal High Court in Abuja where he is being prosecuted to compel his three sureties to produce him in court,” one of the sources said.

“By law, the sureties are the custodian of the defendant and one of their core duties is to ensure that the defendant attends his trial.

“So it is left for the sureties to find how they will bring him to court, not minding the defendant’s threat not to again submit himself to the authorities of the court.

“If they fail to bring him to court, at the end of the ongoing process, they must be ready to face the sanctions, including the forfeiture of their individual N100m bail bonds.”

One of the sources, who is familiar with the extradition process, also doubted the possibility of any success of such extradition process because the UK government had not been on the same page with Nigeria on the proscription of IPOB as a terrorist group.

Another source noted that “The UK government has said it does not see IPOB as a terrorist organisation contrary to the Nigerian government’s position.

“So you can see the disparity in the stances of the two countries’ positions on the issue.”
