The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has sued the Kenyan government for allegedly aiding and abetting his abduction and extradition to Nigeria. 

Kanu’s special counsel, Mr Aloy Ejimakor, said that the suit was filed by a Kenyan law firm, Luchiri Associates, on his behalf.

Ejimakor told The Guardian that “Kanu entered Kenya with his British passport, so, he ought not to have been brought to Nigeria for any reason without a valid court order for his extradition.”

According to him, those who masterminded the extradition to Nigeria grossly violated his human rights.

He stressed that Kanu cannot be lawfully prosecuted by the federal government unless the issue of his extraordinary rendition is first resolved judicially.

Insights gotten from a survey carried out by PWC shows that ‘the success of remote work has reinvented how corporate work gets done and where work gets done. Therefore, by design or by default, most companies are moving toward mixed workplaces, in which large numbers of office workers shift in and out of offices set up for shared spaces.
