Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, was found in Kenya with his British passport.

On Tuesday, June 29th, 2021, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, announced Kanu’s arrest. Kanu was caught and extradited to Nigeria, according to Malami. The minister, on the other hand, declined to reveal any specifics about the arrest.

Kanu’s family and lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, have accused the Kenyan government of kidnapping the IPOB leader.

Kanu was seized by Kenyan police and held for eight days before being handed over to the Nigerian government, according to Ejiofor.

The Kenyan government has denied that Nnamdi Kanu was detained in Kenya by the Nigerian authorities.

However, according to The Guardian, a British publication, Mr. Kanu’s British passport is still in Kenya.

Kanu entered Kenya on a British passport and a visa that expired in June, according to the newspaper.

Kingsley Kanu, the embattled IPOB leader’s brother, verified that his brother was in Kenya. He claimed to have spoken with him just days before he was apprehended by cops.

The British High Commission has contacted Kanu’s legal team for consular assistance, according to Kingsley. He went on to say that the discovery of his British passport in Kenya proved he had been captured and extradited from the East African nation.
