Despite being declared free, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is yet to start enjoying the dividends of freedom.
An Appeal Court earlier passed judgement that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra should be discharged, but the case is otherwise as Kanu is still in the Department of State Services, DSS custody.
Kanu’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, in taking affirmative action, forwarded an official letter to the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, seeking that his client be released with immediate effect.
The lead counsel to Kanu titled his letter to the AGF, “RE. APPEAL NO: CA/ABJ/CR/625/2022; CHARGE NO: FHC/ABI/CR/383/2015 between Nnamdi Kanu vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
The letter contained highlights of the appellate court judgement, detailing why Malami should consider the unconditional release of their client.
They cited how their client was taken from Kenya and illegally expatriated down to Nigeria and has since been tried in court for various offences, including terrorism.
