Biafra people call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu

Estimated read time 2 min read

A group of Biafra people known as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have called on President Buhari to release their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.

The British-Nigerian who is leading the group that wants Biafra’s independence from Nigeria has been in detention despite the Court of Appeal’s decision to strike out the terrorism charges against him.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was extradited from Kenya in 2021 and faced 15 counts filed against him for his role with the group. However, Judge Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja in April 2021 dismissed eight of the 15 charges. The remaining seven charges were also dismissed by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

The spokesperson for IPOB, Emma Powerful called for the release of their leader who he said is suffering from deteriorating health conditions. Nnamdi Kanu is being held by the Department of State Services.

“The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command of our indomitable leaders and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu once again publicly raise alarm on the deteriorating health condition of our leader in the DSS solitary confinement.

“We, therefore, again and again, demand his unconditional release per the order of Courts so that he can get proper medical examination and treatment.

“Those involved in torturing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu using the instrument of injustice and coercion will not break his resolve nor IPOB’s resolve to demand for Biafra Independence. Not now, not tomorrow, and not forever,” Emma Powerful said as reported by Daily Post.

“The Nigerian government and its supporters should understand that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a living legend that Biafrans will not trade with anything in this world.

“Release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally as the courts have ordered to avoid doomsday. A stitch in time saves nine.”
