Kenya police seized Nnamdi Kanu on 18 June, tortured and led him through dehumanizing conditions before handover to Nigeria.

He was detained by Kenya for eight days before the handover, Kanu’s legal team disclosed last night after meeting him.

The meeting took place at a DSS faculity in Abuja.

They said the illtreatment has worsened his health, with his heart enlarged by about 13 percent.

Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel to Kanu, made the disclosures last night on his Facebook wall.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was actually abducted by the accursed Kenya’s Special Police Force on the 18th of June 2021 at their International Airport.”


“(He was) consequently taken to an undisclosed residence under dehumanizing conditions.

“(Kanu) was tortured and subjected to all forms of inhuman treatment which worsened his health condition.

He was illegally detained for eight (8) good days in Kenya before being transfered to their Nigerian counterpart.”

“He was purportedly investigated on a bogus charge while in their custody, ostensibly, awaiting to be handed over after their findings proved him innocent of all the spurious allegations.

“They later beckoned on their Nigerian counterpart to take over.

“Kenyan Government was deeply involved in the abduction, detention and ill-treatment of my client before the illegal handover” to Nigeria.

“A scan of his heart showed that the heart has enlarged by 13% due to the dehumanizing treatment…”

“There will be need for immediate proper medical examination and attention for him.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu conveyed his goodwill message to all IPOB family members worldwide, and craved for your unrelentless prayers.

“His fortified legal team will address these infractions at the proper forum as we progress.”

Ejiofor announced last night that the Agency has approved his request to meet with Kanu at a DSS facility.
