Kanu said he is a victim of travesty of justice and gross human rights violation.
In a letter addressed to the British High Commissioner in Abuja, Kanu said he is a victim of travesty of justice and gross human rights violation.
The letter, dated March 24, 2016, was written to the High Commissioner through his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, urging the British Government to ask President Muhammadu Buhari to order his release from prison.
Kanu, who is British citizen insisted that the government has violently abused his fundamental human rights by unjustly arresting and remanding him in prison custody.
The Biafra leader is facing treason charge alongside two other pro-Biafra agitators, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
Kanu has expressed readiness to answer to the charge against him, but said be doubts if he would get a fair trial, saying he has so far been subjected to immense persecution.
