The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has sued the Kenyan Government for his ” abduction and extra-ordinary rendition to Nigeria”.
Special Counsel to Kanu, Mr Aloy Ejimakor who disclosed this to Vanguard in a telephone chat, said Kanu’s suit had been properly filed at the Kenyan High Court.
He said that the suit was filed on September 14 by Luchiri Associates, Kanu’s legal team in Kenya.
Mr Ejimakor argued that since Kanu is a British citizen and entered Kenya with his British passport, he ought not to have been brought to Nigeria for any reason without valid court orders for his extradition.
He said that Kanu’s fundamental human rights were grossly violated by those who masterminded his rendition to Nigeria, accusing the Kenyan Government of culpability.
He maintained that it was against international laws to illegally arrest somebody on foreign land, an act that amounts to abduction.
