Nnamdi Kanu Petitions British Commission In Nigeria, Demands Full Protection
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has officially written to Catriona Laing, the British High Commissioner in Nigeria, requesting that British officials file a diplomatic note with Nigeria’s Federal High Court stating Britain’s sovereign interest in his trial as a British citizen.
Nnamdi Kanu, in the letter written by his legal counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, on Thursday, said the British authorities must declare that he is not a criminal but “a person who possesses a political opinion which the Nigerian authorities are seeking to suppress using punishment of some sort.”
The IPOB leader was arrested and detained since Sunday with the Department of State Services in Abuja and had been taken to court in chains and handcuffs while his trial was adjourned to July 26.
