0 20

The Indigenous People of Biafra have requested that their detained leader, Mazi Kanu, be released on medical grounds before it is too late.

The group insisted that Kanu did not commit any crime, claiming that he was “criminally abducted” from Kenya and imprisoned illegally in Nigeria.

The group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued a statement on Thursday urging Justice Binta Nyako to protect the sanctity of the judiciary by ordering the Federal Government to release the detained IPOB leader.

According to the group, Kanu’s unlawful rendition from Kenya to Nigeria was a natural bar to any prosecution or further detention in DSS solitary confinement, as well as a violation of his fundamental rights.

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.”
