Kenya deports American wanted for US Capitol riot

He was handed over to the FBI

Kenyan authorities have deported American Isaac Sturgeon who fled the country shortly after the chaos that saw former President Donald Trump's supporters vandalize the US Capitol.

Sturgeon who was wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) is said to have fled to Kenya on January 24, 2021, a few days after the FBI shared his pictures on their website, calling on the public to help identify him.

He is accused of carrying a metal barricade at the Capitol and used it to push back security officers who were guarding the US Capitol, where Senators were about to confirm the Electoral College votes.
