Nnamdi Kanu Writes To British Government To Intervene And Secure His Release

By Ikechukwu Nnochiri

ABUJA – ‎The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has urged the British Government ‎to intervene in his case by asking President Muhammadu Buhari to release him from prison.

Kanu who is facing treason charge alongside ‎two other pro-Biafra agitators, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, approached the British government through his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

Kanu, in a letter dated March 24 and addressed to the British High Commissioner in Abuja, described himself as a victim of travesty of justice and gross human rights violation.

He insisted that the President Buhari-led administration ‎has violently abused his fundamental human rights through his prolonged detention in prison custody.

Even though Kanu said he was ready to answer to the charge ‎against him, he however expressed doubt in the ability of the Nigerian government to accord him fair trial, saying he has so far been subjected to immense persecution. ‎‎Stressing that he is a British citizen, Kanu told the UK government that he was wrongly arrested and put in detention.
