How IPOB Leader, Kanu Was Kidnapped From Airport Parking Lot In Kenya - SaharaReporters

More details have emerged of how Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was rearrested by the Nigerian government. 

A source privy to the illegal abduction of the IPOB leader has revealed to SaharaReporters how Kanu was abducted in Kenya and brought to Nigeria. 

Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, confirmed that Kanu had been rearrested. 

At a joint press briefing with the State Security Service (SSS), also known as the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, Malami said Kanu was rearrested and returned to Nigeria on Sunday, June 27.

He did not, however, give details of where Kanu was arrested and the diplomatic collaborations that may have been involved in the operation.

According to him, the IPOB leader was arrested through “collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and security services”.

Kanu, who is being prosecuted on charges of treasonable felony, was thereafter arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja. It was his first court appearance since he fled Nigeria in September 2017 after an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia in Abia State.

"Kanu had arrived in Kenya and settled down in a house. On June 19, 2021, he drove himself in a car to the international airport to meet a person arriving in the country for a high-level IPOB meeting. 

"He drove into the underground parking lot at the airport and was arrested before exiting the car. 


"He was taken to a house and brutalised for 8 days while the Nigerian authorities perfected how to forcefully relocate him to Nigeria

"He was travelling on a British passport, not a Nigerian passport as alleged by Malami. He was brought into Nigeria on a Saturday and arraigned on Monday. 


"Buhari upon learning of his abduction decided to cancel his trip to the UK to manage the diplomatic fallouts at home instead of going to London. 

"Kanu was interrogated in the presence of his lawyers in the DSS office in Abuja. The Nigerian government didn’t get his passport, laptop, and three major phones.


"He was taken out of Kenya without passing through immigration." 

There have been reports that INTERPOL was involved in Kanu's arrest but the top dismissed that, saying "INTERPOL wasn’t involved". 

UK Newspaper, The Guardian, had reported that Kanu got a Kenya visa which was to expire in June, and he had been around in the country before his sudden arrest and extradition.

“Evidence seen by the Guardian shows Kanu entered Kenya this year on his British passport on a visa expiring in June. His UK passport remains in Kenya. Kanu was not in possession of a Nigerian passport, his family said, and he has verbally renounced his Nigerian citizenship in broadcasts.

“The abduction of a person from a foreign country with the aim of rendition to justice is illegal under international law,” the UK newspaper report says.


SaharaReporters had on Wednesday reported that Kanu recounted his experience in Kenya while speaking with his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, saying he was “mercilessly beaten and tortured” in the East African country before his extradition to Nigeria.

Ejiofor had confirmed the words of Kanu during an interview, adding that Kanu told him how he was detained, not in any Kenya official detention centre but a private residence for about eight days, before his extradition to Nigeria.

The lawyer had said, “There was a clear collaboration between the Kenya government and the Nigerian government. I am happy that they now deny the fact that Kanu was arrested there.

“But by the time we finish with them at the International Criminal Court, they will never remain the same. He was arrested at the airport there, and he was taken to an unknown residence. He was subjected to inhuman treatment.

“Kanu was tortured, maltreated, and mercilessly beaten, as confirmed by him to us. After spending eight days in their illegal custody, they now beckoned to the Nigerian government. Kanu was lifeless and unconscious by the time they were bringing him to Nigeria.

“To tell you the level of their conspiracy and the desperation to get him, they brought him here on a Sunday and the federal government is fully aware that I am his legal counsel.

“He was brought into the country and inflicted with several injuries and he is having many medical issues today. It was at the behest of the Federal government that Kenya was doing those things. This is against all international laws. We are going to address an international court at that level.”

The Kenyan authorities had denied that they had anything to do with the arrest and extradition of Kanu to Nigeria.

I have a strong feeling that Kenya's Pres. Uhuru Kenyatta wouldn't have handed over Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria's Pres. Buhari if he didn't get UK's approval.

The fact is that Kenya is a strong member of Commonwealth Organization and Uhuru Kenyatta having escaped ICJ indictment recently wouldn't have willingly got entangled in international law scandal or in diplomatic row with UK because of Nigeria or even Pres. Buhari. No, that's not possible. So, the earlier IPOB's lawyer realized that Nnamdi Kanu is a victim of international politics, the better it is for him to stop wasting energy, time and money going back and forth with UK's diplomats in Nigeria.

Moreover, I don't think Pres. Buhari postponed his scheduled medical appointment because of Kanu's arrest because he could have kept the matter in the cooler and then show Kanu to the public after his trip.

That's how far they will go to deceive low IQ Nigerians. After doing that and taking pictures while he was unconscious, they give the pictures to Yorubaa media to do the propaganda. Even Nairaland constantly pushes negative threads on Kanu to front page and positive about Igboho who has not done 1/1000 what Kanu has done. If not for Kanu, who know Igboho or where him get lever talk?

Watch below, Afonjas will accuse me of a being a Northerner or Fulani to distract from their propaganda and blame Fulani/Northerners.

Ipob are illiterate, International court of justice don't entertain individual cases, Only States are eligible to appear before the Court in contentious cases. The Court has no jurisdiction to deal with applications from individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporations or any other private entity. It cannot provide them with legal advice or help them in their dealings with national authorities.

Why kicking against the prick, wasting their energy to protest on a case that even the'President of Jupiter' can't alter?

Whether Kanu was kidnapped, abducted or arrested won't change anything.

Since his Nigeria and British passport is in the court as part of the documents for the bail, I think it's safe to say Nigeria assume he doesn't have any passport with him.

How it was wished the Nigerian government under Buhari dedicated their time and energy on arresting and prosecuting the bandits, killer fulani and Boko Haram terrorists.

Then the injustice, and partiality causing agitations by the likes of Nnamdi Kanu wouldn't have risen up.Alas! This is a govt that pamper terrorists but victimise those frustrated with their oppressive and evil regime.

This joke needs to end.

1. According to the Nigerian evidence act (as amended) evidence gotten through illegal means can be used in court as long a such evidence is untampered with hence if Kanu's extradition is illegal, Nigerian courts don't care. As long as he is here. The Kenyan garment will never admit that he was arrested on their turf or involved. The Nigerian government will not say how he was arrested. International politics is not checkers, it is chess

2. Who made the extradition illegal? Why was Hushouppi extradited to the US without a hearing? Heck, he is not even American but when he committed crimes so strongly against America, they called for him and UAE police arrested him.

3. You guys really believe the UK is going to put mouth in this? Weird flex

Exactly. Judge Binta doesn't care how he got to his court room. All that matters is that he is there.

Let’s all hope this rumor of Nnamdi Kanu’s death is false, his death will brew a far worse group that Boko haram. The DSS doesn’t have any case against these Igboho and Kanu, that’s why they want to kill them.
