The Indigenous People of Biafra has lamented over the continued detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in the Department for State Service’s solitary confinement.
The group, on Wednesday, stated that Kanu’s detention was a violation of his rights and in disregard of court orders directing his release.
In a statement made available to the public by the IPOB’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, asked the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led government to immediately free the embattled leader of the group.
The statement partly read: “The continued illegal and unconstitutional detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in a solitary confinement in the facility of the Nigerian State Security Service, is in flagrant disobedience to various orders of courts of competent jurisdiction, a gross violation of his human rights as clearly provided for under the Nigerian Constitution; African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights; United Nations General Assembly Resolution on the Rights to Self-Determination and other International Conventions and Treaties to which Nigeria is a signatory.
“The Nigerian State must free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in compliance with its own laws, conventions and court orders, and the time is now. Enough is enough!”
