Kanu’s UK passport still in Kenya, he was arrested while on a walk – Brother
Kingsley, brother to the Supreme Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has revealed that the IPOB leader was arrested while talking a walk in Kenya and that he was without his documents.
The IPOB leader’s brother said Kanu’s UK passport is still in Kenya.
According to The Guardian, Kanu’s brother, Kingsley, said he had spoken with him while he was in Kenya, “days before he went missing in June.”
“I spoke to him on the phone, he was well, in Nairobi. His associates said he went out, he didn’t take his documents with him; so he wasn’t planning on going anywhere. Then, all of a sudden, we see him paraded in handcuffs in Abuja,” Kingsley said.
“It is an extraordinary rendition, aided by Kenyan authorities,” he said. “It is an outrage that cannot be allowed to happen.
“We are holding the Nigerian government and Kenyan government responsible. The British government, they know what is happening,” he said, adding that UK officials had made contact with Kanu’s family and legal team and that there were concerns he would be abused in detention.
“I am concerned for his wellbeing because you know how they will treat him,” Kingsley said.
The publication added that that evidence at its disposal shows that Kanu entered Kenya this year on his British passport on a visa expiring in June, adding “His UK passport remains in Kenya.”
“The abduction of a person from a foreign country with the aim of rendition to justice is illegal under international law” the medium stated.
