The Indigenous People of Biafra on Thursday warned the Federal Government to release its leader on health grounds before it is too late.
In a statement by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, the group implored Justice Binta Nyako to protect the sanctity of the judiciary by ordering the Federal Government to release the detained IPOB leader.
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.
“Nigeria court must protect the sanctity of the institution of judiciary by ordering for the unconditional release of Kanu on the face of the fundamental violations of international and local laws by the Federal Government in the abduction and extraordinary rendition of our great leader.
“We insist that our great leader, Kanu, should be released unconditionally without much delay and hesitation.”
