A group of activists from the South-east region of Nigeria have written a petition asking the United Kingdom to extradite Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to Nigeria for allegedly inciting violence in Nigeria.

The group, Igbo Youths in Nigeria and Diaspora, submitted the petition to British High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria.

Chukwuma Dike, the spokesperson of the group said the petition to the high commission was because Kanu, a British citizen is bent on destabilizing the Nigerian polity.

”We are calling on the British government to extradite Nnamdi Kanu, they should open a case, let him face justice. We are calling for justice, the death is enough.”

The group furthered accused Nnamdi Kanu of being behind the killings and disappearances of former members of the group who were opposed to his violent tactics.

Dike said Kanu is turning the southeast region into a war zone, pointing out that about 16 youths belonging to the ESN were recently killed by soldiers in Abia state.

He stated that the military and the police were clamping down on innocent people in the region over crimes committed by the IPOB.
