IPOB Urges FG To Release Kanu Before It’s Too Late



Before it’s too late, the Indigenous People of Biafra have pleaded with the federal government to free their detained leader, Mazi Kanu, on medical grounds.

 The group insisted Kanu did not break any laws, claiming the IPOB leader was “criminally abducted” from Kenya and imprisoned unlawfully in Nigeria.

The IPOB group urged Justice Binta Nyako to order the Federal Government to release the detained IPOB leader in a statement released by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Thursday in an effort to uphold the integrity of the legal system.

The group claimed that Kanu’s illegal transfer from Kenya to Nigeria was a violation of his fundamental rights and a natural impediment to any legal action or further detention in solitary confinement by the DSS.

The statement read, “We, the global movement of IPOB, wish to state unequivocally that the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria since June 2021 till date is a violation of his fundamental rights.

“No civilised nation in the world, more so, those under common law system of justice, condone kidnapping and extrajudicial transfer of suspects across international borders, without the authority of law grounded in an extradition process.

“Nigeria court must protect the sanctity of the institution of judiciary by ordering for the unconditional release of Kanu on the face of the fundamental violations of international and local laws by the Federal Government in the abduction and extraordinary rendition of our great leader.

“We insist that our great leader, Kanu, should be released unconditionally without much delay and hesitation.”
