Nnamdi Kanu Is Dying, Our People Will Hold You Responsible

The family of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he is dying slowly even as it raised the alarm for help to secure his release.

Emmanuel, the younger brother of Kanu penned an open letter to the five Southeast Governors concerning his brother’s prolonged detention.

He expressed his distress over his brother’s unjust captivity, emphasizing the violation of his fundamental human rights under the Governors’ supervision.

Emmanuel, speaking as a concerned family member, condemned the illegal confinement of his brother and the blatant disregard for his rights. He urged the Governors to uphold civil liberties, stressing that failure to do so would result in the accountability of Biafra land should any harm befall Kanu.

In his letter, Emmanuel stated: “I am writing this letter with utmost urgency and deep concern regarding the unlawful and unjust detention of my brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Kanu is a man of impeccable character and a strong advocate for justice, freedom, and equality. He has consistently stood up for righteous causes in our society, challenging the status quo and working tirelessly to bring about positive change.

“It is truly disheartening to witness his unwavering commitment to safeguarding human rights being met with such callousness and disregard for basic principles of justice.

“The details surrounding my brother’s arrest and subsequent detention are deeply troubling and indicative of a systemic failure within our justice system.

“The charges brought against him are baseless and appear to be nothing more than an attempt to silence his voice and undermine his campaign for social justice. His detention is politically motivated, solely aimed at suppressing his activism and preventing him from continuing his valuable contribution to our society.

“As a concerned family member, I strongly condemn the unlawful detention of my brother and the blatant violation of his rights. It is your duty as governor to ensure the protection of every individual’s civil liberties, regardless of their beliefs or affiliations. Your obligation to uphold the principles of justice and fairness should guide your actions in every decision made.

“I demand you take immediate and decisive action to secure the release of my brother. I call for a thorough and transparent investigation into the circumstances surrounding his arrest and detention, holding accountable those responsible for these egregious violations.

“Furthermore, I urge you to ensure all charges against him are dropped, as they lack any substantiated evidence.

“Kanu is gravely ill and dying slowly. Biafra land will hold you all accountable should anything happen to him.”
