Direct Malami to stop my court trials, set me free – Nnamdi Kanu writes Buhari

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has written to President Muhammadu Buhari over his continued lack of freedom.

The IPOB leader has informed Buhari, in a letter, to free him without any condition from detention and stop all charges filed against him.

The Informant247 recalls that Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, since he was rearrested in June 2022.

Kanu was renditioned from Kenya in 2021.

He has ever since then been facing charges which border on terrorism and treasonable felony at the Federal High Court, Abuja, the country’s capital.

The Leader of the Biafran agitators through Mike Ozekhome, his lawyer, told the Nigerian leader to effect his freedom from detention via a more productive “political solution.”

He said the release of Kanu would put an end to the sit-at-home order and unrest in the Southeastern region.

The letter reads in part: “We are Solicitors to Nwannekaenyi Nnamdi Olewu Kanu (“Nnamdi Kanu”: “our client”: “Kanu”), on whose clear instructions we write this urgent petition to your good self. The petition is to humbly urge you to order the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu through a more productive “political solution”.

He told the president to direct Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, to make use of his powers under section 174 of the 1999 Constitution to effect a “nolle prosequi” and put an end to all court cases against him.

“Your Excellency must avoid these unhealthy reactions by ensuring that Kanu is RELEASED IMMEDIATELY AND UNCONDITIONALLY NOW. The moral burden of insisting on keeping Kanu in detention is too expensive and too offensive to embrace, especially with his fragile and deteriorating health condition which his custodians (the 555) have not been able to manage properly. Do not let Kanu die in detention, sir,” the letter added.
