The Kenyan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage, who addressed a press briefing in Abuja, acknowledged that anybody or group with proofs that Kenyan safety officers, companies, or the federal government arrested Kanu needs to be free to share them.

Machage mentioned, “One, Nnamdi Kanu; I want to address this allegation by denying that Kenya was involved in the alleged arrest and extradition to Nigeria of Mr Kanu, and I repeat, I want to address this allegation by denying that Kenya was involved.
“These allegations are fictional, imaginary, and exist to gasoline antagonistic emotions between the southern part of the Nigerian folks towards the Kenya folks, and certainly many international locations have been accused.
“Rwanda, Czech Republic, Britain, Ethiopia, and God knows which other country. I want to challenge anyone with facts relating to this arrest through Kenya to present these facts.
“This will embrace how and who was significantly concerned within the alleged arrest. In any case, I consider you might be all Nigerians and Nigerians are in a number of international locations.
“You should ask your government. The government of Nigeria knows how they arrested Kanu, maybe in Nigeria. They have the answers, not me. We are also dismayed by the unfortunate news of this arrest in Kenya which was reported in newspapers today.
