Nnamdi Kanu, detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Monday expressed his delight with the United Nations (Un’s) directive to the Muhammadu Buhari administration to unconditionally release him.
Aloy Ejimakor, who is Kanu’s legal counselor, gave this update.
The separatist’s response came following the assessment of the UN Human Rights Council Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, that Kanu be released “immediately and unconditional”, and compensation paid to him for the violation of his basic freedoms.
He has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja since June 2021 when he was rearrested in Kenya.
“I just exited from visiting Onyendu #MNK. We discussed issues that have lingered from when I last saw him on 27th June. The big event was his landmark victory at the United Nations. It made him cheery and he expressed his profound gratitude to the Team that made it happen,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle.
