A French judge has incarcerated a convicted black power radical because he is wanted for having violated the terms of a suspended sentence for violence, according to several European media outlets on Monday.

Kemi Seba, whose real name is Stellio Cap Chichi, was convicted in 2009. French police arrested him on Saturday after he returned to France from Senegal, where he told followers he would tour France to promote his recent book, Independent Online of South Africa reported.

He had must made a public appearance at the Main d'Or theater in Prais, where Dieudonne M'Bala M'Bala, who has been prosecuted for anti-Semitism in France, regularly performs, according to AFP.

The website noted that the French justice ministry dissolved two groups that he founded, Tribu K and later Jenuesse Kemi Seba, for inciting "racist and anti-Semitic" ideology. He was also expelled from Switzerland in 2012 because of fears that he would incite violence, according to AFP.
