IPOB urges the FG to free Kanu before it's too late.
The Indigenous People of Biafra has petitioned the Federal Government to free its incarcerated leader, Mazi Kanu, on health reasons, before it’s too late.

Insisting that Kanu was innocent of all charges, the organization claimed that the IPOB leader was "criminally abducted" from Kenya and imprisoned unlawfully in Nigeria.

In a statement by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Thursday, it requested Justice Binta Nyako to safeguard the sanctity of the court by ordering the Federal Government to release the arrested IPOB leader.

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 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.

"In light of the fundamental breaking of international and domestic laws by the Federal Government in the kidnapping and extraordinary rendition of our great leader, the Nigerian court must protect the sanctity of the judicial institution by ordering Kanu's unconditional release.

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