Release Kanu Before It's Too Late, IPOB Warns FG
Nnamdi Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Thursday, warned the Federal Government against keeping its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, anylonger, asking that he be released on health grounds before it is too late.

According to the secessionist group, Kanu did not commit any crime, but was “criminally abducted” from Kenya and placed in illegal detention in Nigeria.

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

The group further asserted that the unlawful rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria constituted a natural bar to any prosecution or his further detention in DSS solitary confinement and also 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.”
