IPOB orders members to boycott Kenya Airways, products over Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest, extradition

Nigeria’s outlawed secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has directed its members to boycott Kenya Airline and Kenyan products following the alleged arrest, torture and repatriation of its fugitive leader, Nnamdi Kanu from the country last week.

Periscope International recalls that Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejiofor, had disclosed last Friday after meeting with his client while in detention in a Department of State Services (DSS) facility in Abuja that Kanu was detained and tortured by Kenya police for eight days before handing him over to Nigeria.

IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Sunday directed  its members to stop flying Kenyan Aiways and boycott all Kenyan products.

The Kenyan national carrier is a major operator in the Nigerian aviation market and operates daily flights to and from Lagos.

According to the group, the directive was in retaliation against the maltreatment of their leader by the Kenyan authorities.

IPOB’s action is also targeted at the Kenyan government following a media report that Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga had alleged that Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta, was involved in Kanu’s ordeal.

Odinga had claimed that Kenyatta took gratification from the Nigerian government to trick Kanu to Kenya for a conference, then arrested him and later handed him over to the Nigerian authorities.
