The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has called for the immediate release of Pro Biafran Independence leader Nnamdi Kanu. The Prime Minister made the call as a Pro Biafra Independence group visited his office. Nnamdi Kanu was arrested by the Nigeria’s secret Service DSS, upon his arrival at Lagos International Airport. Kanu is the Director of Radio Biafra, the voice of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOD) movement.
Also a British MP RT. Hon. Harriet Harman MP wrote a letter to Phillip Hammond, Secretary of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office asking for intervention on Kanu’s case. She asked a question of what Nnamdi Kanu is being held for and what he is being charged for. Harriet asked for the immediately release of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu who she said is a British citizen and a member of her constituency in London.
News Reports from Nigeria earlier said Mr. Kanu has been granted bail, but his whereabouts is unknown at the moment. His arrest has elicited peaceful rallies in some Nigerian cities, and condemnation letters from Igbo organizations in the Diaspora. Reactions from inside and outside Nigeria have been swift over the detention and violation of Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom of speech guaranteed not only by the Nigerian Constitution but also by the United Nations Charter on individual freedom of expression.
