The group said the unlawful rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria constituted a natural bar to any prosecution or his further detention in DSS solitary confinement and also a violation of his fundamental rights.

The statement read, “We, the global movement of IPOB, wish to state unequivocally that the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria since June 2021 till date is a violation of his fundamental rights.

“No civilised nation in the world, more so, those under common law system of justice, condone kidnapping and extrajudicial transfer of suspects across international borders, without the authority of law grounded in an extradition process.
