The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami(SAN), announced this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, June 29. Kanu was arrested in the UK and extradited to Abuja for trial on Sunday, June 27.

According to Malami, he was arrested by the collaborative effort of security agencies in Nigeria and Interpol. He further disclosed that Kanu would be taken before the Federal High Court in Abuja for the continuation of his trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

Nnamdi had fled the country after a Federal High Court in Abuja granted him bail on health grounds in 2017. The Judge who granted him bail revoked it on March 28, 2019 and issued a Bench warrant for his arrest in any part of the country.
