Before his rearrest, some media outfits reported that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu ran away from London to avoid or evade arrest.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu denied the allegation and called the media names.
Lawyers to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu after meeting him in D.S.S custody made statements that indicated that the Biafra agitation Leader have been living in Kenya for some period before his rearrest on June 18, 2021 when he went to pick a visitor at the air port as stated by his lawyers.
One of the Lawyers, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor said Nnamdi Kanu spent 8 days with the alleged kidnappers before he was hurriedly and secretly extradited to Nigeria on June 27, 2021.
According to Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu told him the alleged kidnappers tortured him and the Kenya government played a role in his extradition to Nigeria.
