JUST IN: DSS, Police arrest suspected IPOB members at Nnamdi Kanu's trial in Abuja 



A spokeswoman for the Kenyan interior ministry has revealed that they are not aware that the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was arrested on their soil.

Reuters reported that Kenya’s foreign affairs ministry in Nairobi, however, refused to comment on the matter when questioned.

Kanu who jumped bail in 2017 was rearrested under obscure circumstances by the Nigerian Government and he’s being held by the Department of State Services after appearing before an Abuja Court, WuzupNigeria had reported.

“The re-arrest was made possible by the diligent efforts of our security and intelligence agencies, in collaboration with countries with which we have obligations,” Information Minister Lai Mohammed told reporters.
