How Kenya Tortured, Detained Kanu for Eight Days Before Repatriation to Nigeria – Lawyer

The legal representative of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has alleged that Nnamdi Kanu was arrested by the Kenyan Government before he was transferred to the Department of State Services.

Ejiofor disclosed this on Friday in a tweet on Twitter while giving an update on the update of the case.

He wrote, “My client, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was actually abducted by accursed Kenya’s Special Police Force on the 18th of June 2021 at their International Airport, and consequently taken to an undisclosed residence under dehumanising conditions.

“He was tortured and subjected to all forms of inhuman treatment which worsened his health condition. He was illegally detained for eight good days in Kenya before being transferred to their Nigerian counterpart.

“He was purportedly investigated on a bogus charge while in their custody, ostensibly waiting to be handed over after their findings proved him innocent of all the spurious allegations. They later beckoned on their Nigerian counterpart to take over.

“The Kenya government was deeply involved in the abduction, detention and ill-treatment of my client before the illegal handover to their Nigerian counterpart.”

Ejiofor also alleged that the health condition of the IPOB leader was deteriorating, claiming that a scan showed his heart had widened by 13 per cent due to how he was handled by the Kenyan government.

He added, “A scan of his heart showed that the heart has enlarged by 13 per cent due to the dehumanising treatment meted out to him. There will be a need for immediate proper medical examination and attention for him.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu conveyed his goodwill message to all IPOB family members workedwide, and craved your unrelentless prayers. We are going back to the court for the needful. Other details cannot be entertained here. His fortified legal team will address these infractions at the proper forum as we progress. Other details on our legal strategy may not be made public.

“With Chukwuokike Abiama on our side, victory is assured. For if God Almighty be for us, who can be against us?”
