IPOB warn FG to release nnamdi kanu before it’s too late

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has asked the Federal Government to release its detained leader Nnamdi Kanu on health grounds.
Insisting that Kanu was innocent of all charges, the group claimed that the IPOB leader was “criminally abducted” from Kenya and imprisoned unlawfully in Nigeria.
In a statement on Thursday, the group urged Justice Binta Nyako to order the Federal Government to release the arrested IPOB leader in order to preserve the integrity of the legal system.
The group claimed that Kanu’s unlawful transfer from Kenya to Nigeria amounted to a violation of his fundamental rights and barred any prosecution or additional incarceration in solitary confinement by the DSS.
The statement reads: “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’s 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.”
