Ruto told Alex Ezenagu the story of a controversial businessman Anthony Chinedu who made headlines in 2013 when he was deported from Kenya for being in the country illegally.

“When I first met Alex I told him a story of a guy called Chinedu who gave us a lot of trouble and I was told that man was an Igbo…

“This Chinedu fellow gave us so much trouble that we deported him to Nigeria and when we deported him he refused to get out of the aeroplane in Lagos for two days. Even after leaving him there we found him in Kenya,” he stated.
