Nnamdi Kanu, the director of Radio Biafra has sent a letter to the British government to wade into his case and push for his release.
Kanu, who doubles as leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra approached the British government through his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
In the letter dated March 24 and addressed to the British high commissioner in Abuja, and obtained by Vanguard, Kanu said he was a victim of travesty of justice and gross human rights violation.
He called on the British government to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari to release him. Kanu said his prolonged detention in prison was a clear violation of his fundamental right.
According to Kanu, he had been subjected to harsh persecution and although he was ready to face the charges brought upon him, he doubted the Nigerian government’s ability to give him a fair trial.
He said he was wrongly detained and that since he was a British citizen, he should be released.
