The detained chief of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has recounted his expertise in Kenya whereas talking together with his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, saying he was “mercilessly beaten and tortured” within the East African nation earlier than his extradition to Nigeria.

The IPOB chief’s lawyer, Ejiofor, revealed this in an interview he granted on Arise Television and monitored by SaharaReporters, noting that the Kenyan authorities can be dragged to the International Criminal Court to reply for the brutality.
The lawyer stated, “There was a clear collaboration between the Kenyan government and the Nigerian government and I am happy that they are now denying the fact that Kanu was arrested in 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 a number of 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.”
