British murder suspect, Arthur Sampson Kent has submitted himself voluntarily to be sent to the United Kingdom for trial.
The announcement was made known by his lawyer Justice Sai, after a thirty minutes consultation with his client.
Justice Sai told the court that his client wanted the court to waive the extradition processes so he can return to the UK voluntarily.
The revelation caused some surprise in court which made presiding judge, Justice Merley Wood ask Mr Kent whether that was indeed his request. Mr. Kent in return answered in the affirmative, confirming the comments by his lawyers. Lawyers for Simpson Kent are however asking the court to stand down the case because they have been kept in the dark in the processes.
They also argued that Simpson Kent has been denied on several occasions, access to their client .The court in response ordered the AG to expedite the process of deportation while Arthur Simpson Kent is kept in BNI custody.
Mr. Simspon Kent who has been charged with murder, was brought before a magistrate court a fortnight ago for extradition processes begin, but the case was transferred to High Court on the Second hearing of the case where these revelations were made.
Earlier, officials of the United Kingdom have submitted the necessary documents needed for the extradition of British fugitive Arthur Simpson Kent who is alleged to have committed murder.
According to the state prosecutor who announced this in Court, Rebecca Adjalo, the state received the deposition in the case, authenticated by judicial officials from the UK and has subsequently forwarded it to the Ministry of Interior for the necessary action to be taken for his extradition.
The case has since been stood down for thirty minutes as requested.
