The last may not have been heard over the arrest and extradition of Nnamdi Kanu; the embattled leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPoB) to Nigeria Sunday by security agents as the Kenya Government was quoted in a statement being circulated in the social media as being angry over what is described as “kidnapping” of Kanu in Kenya without due process.
The statement with credit to African Reporters, a supposedly media platform said, “Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped in Kenya, we did not arrest him or hand him over to the Nigerian government, we heard of the news after they smuggled him off our borderline, how they passed our border is still strange to us.”
“We are challenging the arrest of a British citizen in our country without our notice to International Criminal Court, and the Nigeria government should tender a prove of “documents” that the Kenya government handed one “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu” over to them. We also wish for Nigeria government to tell the world how they managed to leave our borderline without our notice.”
“Prior to this, five security men working in our borderline have been detained for an illegal permit, while three have been put off work. We do not want the world to see Kenya as an unsafe place for people of all kind.
Kenya has legal rules, and we demonstrate and protect them with full force. Nigerian government’s invasion into our land, picked someone and left, is a call for war and threat to our peace. Nigeria should meet us in court” the statement concluded.
