Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has sued the Kenyan Government for rights violation resulting from extraordinary rendition.
The Special Counsel to the IPOB leader, Aloy Ejimakor, disclosed this via his Twitter handle on Thursday.
“UPDATE: Extraordinary Rendition: Onyendu’s legal team has filed a suit in Kenya against the Kenyan government,” Ejimakor wrote.
Kanu was recently rearrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria, despite having entered the East African country with a British passport.
But the Kenyan High Commissioner, Wilfred Machage, had denied that the IPOB leader was arrested in Kenyan.
Despite the denial, IPOB had continued to accuse Kenya of playing a role in Kanu’s rearrest.
Kanu is expected in court in October. The Nigerian government primarily charged him with treason.
