ABUJA-Ambassador Wilfred Machage, Kenya High Commissioner to Nigeria, has finally opened up after speculation that his country planned a coup against the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by extraditing back to Nigeria on his visit to Kenya, thereby bridging international code of practice. It could be recalled that Kanu’s family had alleged that, IPOB leader arrest was aided by the Kenyan government, and tagged it, abduction and kidnap.
Clearing the air on Friday, (Yesterday) in a briefing at Abuja, Machage said that Kenya was not involved in the alleged arrest and extradition of Kanu back to Nigeria as speculated and dare anyone with evidence to present them before the world. His words:
“To us, therefore, these allegations are fictional, imaginary and deliberately concerted to fuel antagonistic feelings among certain section of the Nigerian people.I want to challenge anyone with facts relating to this alleged arrest in Kenya to present those facts. This includes when, where, how and who was particularly involved in the alleged arrest. The Government of Kenya is particularly appalled by the spurious, derogatory and libelous mention of our dear President on this matter as has been reported. I, as the High Commissioner of the Republic of Kenya to the Federal Republic of Nigeria, wish to categorically emphasise that our two countries, Kenya and Nigeria, have and continue to enjoy cordial diplomatic relations with both the Federal Government of Nigeria and its great accommodating and amiable citizens.”
With this coming from Kenyan Ambassador, it then means that, Kanu’s family, IPOB who had alleged that their leader was kidnapped and abducted testify to the Ambassador’s claim that, Kenyan government was not involved or carried alone. Some analysts (Names withheld) who spoke to our correspondent say that, it shows that Nigeria has continued in her lawlessness and backwardness to international and standard practice.
