The pro-Biafran movement, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has commended Ndigbo, human rights activists and other groups for their efforts to ensure an unconditional release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who had been detained for the past two years by the Nigerian government even after being freed by the Supreme Court of all allegations.

The non-violent group specifically appreciated the efforts of Enugu State Governor, Dr. Peter Mba; Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo; Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka; Nollywood actor, Kanayo .O. Kanayo, and many others for identifying with the plight of its leader – Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB pointed out that the recent call from the newly elected Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah, and his personal visit to the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was welcomed by the IPOB family Worldwide.

“These individuals and groups, whose efforts were done in the open and behind closed doors for the unconditional release of  Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the DSS dungeon are all noted and appreciated by IPOB family worldwide.

“In Nigeria today, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu remains the only political prisoner held unconstitutionally in custody without charge because he is an Igboman. The main reason for his persecution and illegal incarceration is because he is an Igbo Biafran fighting for the freedom and wellbeing of his people,” IPOB stated.

The group also pointed out that self- determination was legal and supported by the United Nations Laws, and by the Africa Union Charter.

“It is an inalienable right of the indigineous peoples to pursue their own political, economic, cultural and social future.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was illegally abducted in Kenya, extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria, and held in solitary confinement for two years because of his request for a United Nation supervised Biafra referendum,” the group stated.
