You can’t threaten me, ‘I’m not a Nigerian citizen’, Kanu tells FG

The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has vowed to challenge the court order directing his arrest, in the United Kingdom.
Kanu also criticized the federal government over his prosecution, insisting that he is innocent of the accusations against him.
Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja had revoked the bail granted to the IPOB leader in 2017, after his continued absence in court.
Binta Nyako, justice of the court, also issued an arrest warrant against Kanu, citing the continued absence of the IPOB leader in court.

Kanu who spoke during a broadcast on Radio Biafra on Saturday, said he has instructed his lawyers to challenge the arrest warrant in a UK court.
“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,” he said.
