Kenya ‘confirms’ Nnamdi Kanu didn’t undergo extradition

Nnamdi Kanu’s brother, Kingsley Kanunta Kanu, said that Kenya has confirmed in Court that his sibling did not go through extradition process in the East African nation.

Kanunta Kanu made this known on Thursday via a statement he signed, which was shared by a top lawyer, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor.

Kanunta Kanu added that the Kenyan government filed its suit in respect of the separatist leader’s matter on Tuesday, and part of their defence was that ‘there are no extradition proceedings to justify that it is responsible for Nnamdi Kanu’s extradition’.

“The defense the Kenyan Government filed in court said in major part “That there are no extradition proceedings to justify that the Government of Kenya is responsible for the subject’s extradition”.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s transfer from Kenya to Nigeria is unlawful, not lawful as was claimed by the Nigerian Government.

“This latest revelation, officially made in open Court by Kenya, further solidifies our abiding position that the Nigerian Government cannot benefit from its own wrong by subjecting my brother to trial.

“As the the next hearing date unfolds to 7th December 2021, more legal processes will be in view. Our immediate goal is to secure the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.”
