The Kenya Government on Friday has reacted claims that it was involved in the arrest and extradition of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to Nigeria.
In a statement on Friday, Kenya government dismissed the claims
Kenya authorities said they could not even ascertain whether the arrest of Kanu took place in the country.
Recall that on Tuesday, the Federal Government through the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) hinted the interception of Kanu at an undisclosed location and subsequent extradition to Nigeria.
Tzszx he British High Commission in Nigeria had denied that the IPOB leader was arrested or extradited from the UK, where he is a citizen.
But Nnamdi Kanu brother in a statement made available to Journalists confirmed that the IPOB leader was arrested in Kenya
At a press briefing by the Kenyan High Commission in Nigeria in Abuja on Friday, the High Commissioner, Ambassador (Dr.) Wilfred Machage, denied the involvement of his country in the whole saga.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu’s family and the IPOB had earlier accused the Kenyan government of having committed the most serious violation of international law.
Kanu was arrested last Sunday by what the Nigerian government described a combined operation of Nigerian and foreign security services.
