Ministers and officials have raised Nnamdi Kanu's case with the Nigerian authorities on multiple occasions. The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office will take the steps we consider most effective regarding our consular assistance to Mr Kanu and will keep these under review, as has been done in the past. We do not speculate on future sanctions as doing so can limit their impact.
