Kenya Tortured, Detained Kanu For 8 Days Before Repatriation To Nigeria – IPOB Lawyer

A youth-based Igbo interest group, Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) have called on President Bola Tinubu to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody.

The socio-political group said in a statement signed by its president general, Goodluck Ibem, on Saturday, December 9, that it would celebrate President Tinubu if he upholds the rule of law by setting Nnamdi Kanu free from DSS custody.

The statement reads in part: “President Tinubu has before now been an advocate of the rule law and respect for court orders which informed his decision to be part of NADECO which fought against military junta and dictatorship.

“The unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu will prove that President Tinubu says and stands by what he professes and fought for in the past during the military era.

“The entire southeast geopolitical zone is waiting earnestly to receive their son Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as the Supreme Court decides on his matter on 15 December 2023.

“We will celebrate President Tinubu for upholding the rule of law and respecting the Court judgment by releasing Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody.”

The group said that the insecurity in the southeast would stop with the release of the IPOB leader.

The Heralds reports that Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention for over two years since his arrest in Kenya in 2021, and his extraordinary rendition to Nigeria, despite court orders for his release.

Kanu had earlier been granted bail in 2017, but failed to honour his court appearance as he was alleged to have jumped bail.
