The Indigenous People of Biafra has called for the unconditional release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu saying his life is under threat in the custody of the Department of State Security Services.
IPOB said this in its letter to the British government asking the UK to embark on an “aggressive diplomatic engagement” to enable the release od Kanu.
While alleging that over 300 IPOB members were currently being detained across detention camps nationwide, the separatist organisation demanded that the United Kingdom should ensure the safety and protection of its citizen in the country.
The lead lawyer to IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, raised these issues in a strongly worded letter to the British High Commissioner in Nigeria dated November 17 and titled, ‘Solitary confinement of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (A British citizen) in the custody of the Department of State security in Re: charge NO. FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, Federal Republic of Nigeria V. Nnamdi Kanu’. and obtained by The PUNCH in Abuja on Friday.
