The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu may soon heave a sigh of relief, as the British government has informed the Federal Government of its decision to issue him with travel documents.
This was disclosed by a top government source who spoke to journalists but prefered to remain anonymous.
The source also said the British Government said it has the best of intentions towards Nigeria, regarding its decision.
“The British authorities have briefed the Nigerian government about the temporary travel documents they are about to issue to Nnamdi Kanu, who holds a Nigeria-UK dual citizenship.
“It shows that they have the best intentions towards the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the source said.
It would be recalled that the Department of State Services, DSS, seized Kanu’s British and Nigerian passports upon his arrest.
This has raised questions about how he was able to leave Nigeria without his travel documents.
After several months of anxiety over his whereabouts, Kanu recently emerged in videos and pictures online showing him praying in Jerusalem. He later made a broadcast via Radio Biafra.
