The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has faulted the silence of the United States of America over the continued incarceration of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu by President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
Kanu has been detained by the Nigerian government since his rearrest in Kenya last year June.
Despite court rulings ordering his release, the Nigerian Government refused to release Kanu.
However, Powerful wondered why the US government was silent over its Nigerian counterpart’s violation of international law and protocol.
A statement by Powerful reads partly: “Our questions to United States of America government and the world’s most powerful nation and the Police of the free world are as follows:
“Why the US Government kept mute in the face of the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigeria Government in violation of international law and protocols? While still keeping him in their detention facilities.
“Why the US Government still kept mute in the face of the continued illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigeria Government and even after competent Courts in Nigeria (Abuja Appeal Court and Umuahi High Court) pronounced him discharged and acquitted since 13th October 2022 and October 27, 2022, respectively and thereby violating his human and fundamental rights?
“What is the US Government benefiting from the very corrupt and corruption ravaged Nigeria governance system that warrants their long silence on the ongoing genocides against Biafrans and total disregard to international laws and protocols in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu?”
