Nnamdi Kanu’s Family Writes South-east Governors Amid His Declining Health Condition, Others

The family of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reached out to the governors of the Southeast region through an open letter.

They expressed profound concern over what they describe as the unlawful and unfair detention of Kanu, emphasizing the serious condition of his health and the potential consequences of his continued incarceration.

The letter, penned by Kanu’s brother, emphasizes the family’s distress over Kanu’s detainment, arguing that it contravenes his fundamental human rights and has been carried out without just cause. The family asserts that Kanu, known for his staunch advocacy for justice, freedom, and equality, has been targeted for his vocal opposition to societal injustices, resulting in a politically motivated attempt to silence his activism.

Highlighting the absence of credible evidence against Kanu, the letter criticizes the baseless charges that have led to his arrest and demands his immediate release. The family calls on the Southeast governors to intervene urgently, advocating for a comprehensive investigation into the arrest and detention process, and to work towards dropping all charges, citing a lack of substantiated evidence.

The appeal makes a poignant mention of Kanu’s deteriorating health, stating that he is “gravely ill and dying slowly.” It emphasizes the gravity of the situation by warning of the accountability the Southeast governors will face if harm befalls Kanu while under detention.
