The incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Rado Biafra has cried out to the government of Britain to intervene in his case.

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.
