The incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has instituted a lawsuit against the Kenyan Government.
This was disclosed via a tweet on Thursday by Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Kanu.
Ejimakor had tweeted, “UPDATE: Extraordinary Rendition: Onyendu’s legal team has filed a suit in Kenya against the Kenyan government.”
Creekvibes News Magazine recalls that Kanu was arrested in June and extradited to Nigeria to face trial for alleged treason after he had jumped bail since 2017
Speaking on the arrest, Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, said that Kanu was “intercepted through the collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and security services”.
Wilfred Machage, the Kenyan high commissioner to Nigeria, had denied the claim that Kanu was arrested in his country.
But Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to the IPOB leader, countered the position of the Kenyan government, saying his client was “illegally handed over” to the Nigerian government.
Kanu is expected in court in October. The Nigerian government has charged him with treason.
