Nigerian Man Deported from Kenya for Assaulting Kenyan Woman Caught on CCTV

John Nwankwo Noko, a Nigerian citizen captured on CCTV footage attacking a Kenyan woman, has been expelled from the country, as reported by The Standard.

The suspect’s deportation, which occurred on Saturday, May 4, 2024, was confirmed in a statement signed by Anne Wang’ombe, the Principal Secretary of the State Department of Gender.

Noko stands accused of physically assaulting his partner, identified as Pauline, a Kenyan woman with physical disabilities, sparking concerns over Gender-Based Violence (GBV) incidents.

The incident was initially brought to the attention of law enforcement by Nominated Senator Gloria Orwoba on Wednesday, May 1. Senator Orwoba responded to a viral video circulating on social media since April 29 and visited Pauline at her residence, where she expressed fear for her life.

Pauline disclosed that her Nigerian partner had made threats to harm her and her two domestic workers if they exposed his actions. Senator Orwoba promptly reported the matter to the Karen Police Station, leading to further investigation by the offices of Interior Cabinet Secretary Kindiki Kithure and Immigration PS Julius Bitok.

“Mr Nwankwo Noko has been arrested and processed for deportation,” Gender PS confirmed.
