Biafra: British Legislator Petitions UK Government Over Nnamdi Kanu’s Detention

A member of the British parliament, Harriet Harman has written a petition to the British government seeking to know the details of the continued detention of radio Biafra Director, Nnamdi Kanu.

Harman, who represents Camberwell and Peckham, sought to know why Kanu, who is a British citizen was arrested on Saturday, October 17, 2015.

In the petition titled  “Detention of my constituent Mr. Nnamdi Kanu”, which addressed to Phillip Hammond, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and dated Thursday, October 22, 2015, Harman maintained that since Kanu and his Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) movement was non-violent, he should be protected by Article 1 of the United Nations charter.
The petition read: “I understand that Mr Nnamdi Kanu, who I am told is a British citizen and lives at …was arrested on the 17th October 2015 by the Nigerian Department of Security Services (DSS) when arriving in Lagos from the United Kingdom.

“I understand Nnamdi is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who are agitating for the independence of Nigeria’s former Eastern Region. I’m told that the pro-Biafra group are non-violent and therefore should be afforded protection under Article 1 of the charter of the United Nations.

“I’d be grateful if you could let me know your understanding of what Nnamdi has been arrested for,what he might be charged with, where he has been held and what consular engagement there has been.”

Below is a copy of the petition:

  8. The name of the Alpha n Omega, the Imortal reality, the Mighty one in battle, the most high Chukwu Okike Abiama is at stake. NO FORCE CAN DEFEAT THE GREATEST FORCE BEHIND EVERY OTHER FORCES THAT HAS NO FORCES BEHIND IT, and that force is the spirit of Biafra, God.

  9. It's unfortunate you asked such repulsive question about Biafrans..
    But I won't bother you with an answer, since obviously you knows the answer but decided to comment based on hate..
    However, Biafra has ll the right to sort for self determination of and also the right to protect herself from extermination by the Nigerian state..

    I don't hate you, but it baffles me how and when you developed such animosity of the name and people are of Biafra..

    Think about this!
