The first thing that came to mind with this huge tankard was Abuja, and there does appear to have been a potter there with these initials - but does the glaze/clay body look ‘right’ for Abuja? I’ve seen pictures but haven’t picked up a piece before.

Yes, Abuja. Although Jos might also be possible. LK mark for Dr. Ladi Kwali

Thank you - really pleased I was able to ID it! I’ve been reading up on the pottery and the potter, really interesting.
