The United States of America, USA, under the leadership of Donald Trump, was in shock over the report that President Muhamamdu Buhari, stopped the British officials from visiting the detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, in Kuje prison.
In a petition by a brother of the IPOB Leader, Emmanuel Kanu, on behalf of the family, they alleged that their son and other Biafra agitators detained with him at Kuje, were being humiliated by the prison authorities and the officials of the Directorate of State Services, DSS.
They petitioned the United States of America and the European Union, to intervene in the alleged maltreatment of their son by the prison authorities and security agents.
Their petition read in part: “We observed with great dismay the conspiracy by the DSS and the prison authorities through their prison wardens, to stop Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from receiving visitors in Kuje prison, Abuja.
“The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and others detained illegally alongside with him, were only allowed to receive visitors for one hour a day, from Monday to Friday in a week, while other inmates were always allowed to receive visitors five hours in a day, from Monday to Sunday, seven days a week.
“It is a huge embarrassment on the side of the British government, who have been denied access to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Kuje prison, by the security agents and prison authorities through the prison wardens.
“The security agents and prison wardens, stopped the British people who intended to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in the prison, to see the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.”
They added, that the denial of the IPOB Leader from receiving visitors, was a decoy by the Federal Government to kill the IPOB Leader, secretly.
They said: “Nevertheless, we observed that the security agents and prison authorities through the prison wardens, are planning to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, without anybody knowing when it will happen, that is why they are making sure nobody visits him again”.
“In line with this, we are calling on the international community, USA, EU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Men and Women of good conscience, and other relevant Human Rights Organisations around the globe, to caution the Federal Government of Nigeria and her security agents, to stop their barbaric attitude towards my brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
