The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has alleged that the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyata played a very huge role in the arrest and extradition to Nigeria of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The statement released by the Director of Media and Publicity, of IPOB, Emma Powerful read: “Based on our preliminary findings, President Uhuru Kenyetta was very instrumental to the abduction of our leader in Kenya. The treacherous action of Uhuru Kenyatta against Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans at large is a clear violation of the 1949 Geneva Convention, and United Nations Code.
“As we continue with our investigations into this crime with a view to unmasking all the collaborators, we announce the following interim actions until further notice:
“We call on all Biafrans both home and in the Diaspora to boycott travels with Kenya Airlines; to immediately stop patronising any product made in Kenya; and to boycott any business dealings with Kenyans. We cannot be relating friendly with anyone collaborating with our oppressors to keep us in perpetual slavery!”
In reaction to the allegation by IPOB that the Kenyan government played a role in the re-arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Kenya’s Director-General of Immigration Services, Alexander Muteshi, has dismissed such claim.
Also Kenyan government officials in separate interviews with Reuters and Kenya’s Nation newspaper denied their country’s involvement in the saga.
“A spokeswoman for the Kenyan interior ministry said it was not aware of the matter, while the foreign affairs ministry in Nairobi did not respond to a request for comment,” Reuters said in its report.
