Detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has appeal to the British High Commission in Nigeria to prevail upon the Federal Government to set him free.

Kanu, who was arrested on October 14, 2015 and has since been incarcerated, said his trial on treasonable felony is politically orchestrated by the Nigerian government.

The letter dated August 16 and sent to the British High Commissioner by his lawyer, reads in part, “In the face of this conspiratorial plot by the Nigerian government to hang our client at all cost and by any means, we respectfully invite the British government to demonstrate more responsive concern in restoring the dignity and freedom if our client whose fundamental rights as guaranteed under the supreme laws of the land and relevant international conventions has been grossly violated by Nigerian government.”

The IPOB leader also accused the Nigerian government of frustrating his defence.

“Despite our stiff opposition to this application (protection of witnesses), the honourable court for reasons best known to him, apparently not supported by any legal precedence or judicial authorities made a volte-face and strangely varied the order he made on the 19th day of February, 2016.

“In effect, the court granted an application for a secret trial of our client, a British citizen obviously sitting in appeal against his order made on the February 2016,” the letter noted.
