Just In: Kenyan Govt. stays off Nnamdi Kanu’s extradition to Nigeria

By News Desk

The Kenyan Government has denied any involvement in arrest and extradition of leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, to Nigeria, and that it would not engage in any activity that could break the relationships that existed from both countries.

It added that rather than engage in actions that could truncate the relationship between both countries, it would continuously engage in activities that would strengthen the bilateral ties that had existed over the years between Nigeria and Kenya.

The Kenyan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage, who made the clarification on Friday, claimed that those that had been flying the allegations were only trying to fuel antagonistic attacks between both countries.
Machage, while addressing newsmen, stressed that the Kenyan government was unhappy that the name of the country and that of its president, Uhuru Kenyatta, was been dragged in the mud over the extradition of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to Nigeria.

The envoy challenged anyone with the facts relating to the alleged arrest in Kenya to present those facts, when, where, how and who was particularly involved in the alleged arrest.

He noted that rather than accuse Kenya of having a hand in the reported arrest, the Nigerian media should ask the Nigerian Government to explain in which country they arrested the secessionist leader.

The claim of the envoy came after Kanu’s brother, Kingsley, had alleged that the IPOB leader who jumped bail in 2017, was nabbed in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria on Sunday.

He also called on the British High Commission in Nigeria to ensure Kanu’s release from custody, claiming that his brother’s fundamental human rights have been violated by the government.
