Kanu was deported to Nigeria after his re-arrest to pursue his trial before an Abuja Federal High Court.
Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, condemned his detention as an illegal abduction that did not meet international standards.
However, the IHRC stated that it has received multiple petitions from Nigeria requesting an investigation into Kanu’s detention and return.
“The IHRC is devoted to preserving the rights of citizens around the world in keeping with the organization’s basic mandate,” said Evans M. Mutavi, Special Envoy for Africa Region and International President for Kenya, in a statement.
“Following an investigation, the panel was unable to establish a case of Nnamdi Kanu’s human rights being violated in Kenya by the Special Police Forces.
“The Commission is confident that the Kenyan government had no official role in the incident that led to the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu.
“The Commission expects the Nigerian government to follow up on Nnamdi Kanu’s trial in accordance with the country’s laws and human rights standards.
“The panel has determined to monitor Nnamdi Kanu’s trial to ensure that the Nigerian government does not violate his human rights.”
