The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is influencing the decisions of judges trying his case.

Kanu made the allegation through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who spoke at a media briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, May 11, 2016.

“Nnamdi Kanu is a political prisoner, and this was confirmed in the presidential media chat,” he said.

“The pronouncements of the president is affecting the decision of the court. We consider the pronouncements prejudicial. The president should not be making pronouncements that are indirectly influencing the decision of the judges.

“We went to ECOWAS court because we believe we will be given justice. Only ECOWAS court can give us justice,” he added.

Kanu was arrested in October 2015 and is currently being detained at the Kuje prison in Abuja on charges of treason.

Buhari had earlier said that the Biafra leader would not be released due to the seriousness of the allegations against him.
