We Visit Kanu Regularly in Prison - UK Govt Reveals

Nnamdi Kanu

The United Kingdom has revealed that it is in constant communication with the director of Radio Biafra who is being held in connection to treasonable charges by the Nigerian government.

Following Nnamdi Kanu's call for the United Kingdom to intervene in his case, the UK says it has been visiting the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra in prison.

A spokesman for the British High Commission, Mr. Joe Abuku, said this in an email sent to PUNCH correspondent on Friday.

Abuku said this in response to an email regarding Kanu’s letter to the High Commission.

The statement read, “We have provided assistance to Mr. Kanu since his arrest in October last year, including visiting him regularly in prison and attending court appearances in an observation capacity.”

The detained Biafran agitator, who is also a British citizen, had written a letter through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, that the British government should not abandon him.

He had said, “It is repeating the obvious to state that our client is a full British citizen, by virtue of which position he is entitled to all rights, privileges and protection, guaranteed under the British laws and conventions.”

He also argued that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had violently abused his fundamental human rights through his prolonged detention in prison custody, adding that there was no way he would get a fair hearing.
