Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has recounted his client’s experience in Kenya.
Ejiofor claimed that Kanu was “mercilessly beaten and tortured” in the East African country before his extradition to Nigeria.
The lawyer, who spoke in an interview with Arise TV, said Kanu told him how he was detained in a private residence for about eight days in Kenya before his extradition to Nigeria
He threatened that the Kenyan government would be dragged to the International Criminal Court to answer for the brutality.
He said, “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.”
