IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu writes to British Government

ABUJA - The detained leader of the
Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr.
Nnamdi Kanu, has urged the British
Government to intervene in his case by asking
President Muhammadu Buhari to release him
from prison.
Kanu who is facing treason charge
alongside two other pro-Biafra agitators,
Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi,
approached the British government through
his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Kanu, in a letter dated March 24 and
addressed to the British High Commissioner in
Abuja, described himself as a victim of
travesty of justice and gross human rights
violation.
He insisted that the President Buhari-led
administration has violently abused his
fundamental human rights through his
prolonged detention in prison custody.
Even though Kanu said he was ready to
answer to the charge against him, he however
expressed doubt in the ability of the Nigerian
government to accord him fair trial, saying he
has so far been subjected to immense
persecution.
Stressing that he is a British citizen, Kanu told
the UK government that he was wrongly
arrested and put in
