Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu’s wife reveals only person who can save IPOB leader

Uchechi Okwu Kanu, the wife of Biafra political activist, Nnamdi Kanu, has identified Dominic Raab, the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs of the United Kingdom (UK), as the only person who can save her husband from punishment by Nigerian authorities.

It will be recalled that Kanu is currently in the custody of the Department of State Security Services, DSS. He is facing several charges including treasonable felony which carries the death sentence.

According to her, Raab “can end all of this in an instant”.

“Only the British government can prevent him (Kanu) from being subjected to further harm. My family’s future happiness rests with Dominic Raab. He can end all of this in an instant. He can stop my nightmare,” Guardian UK quotes Uchechi as saying.

The family of Kanu are accusing the UK government of abandoning him adding that he is being ‘detained illegally’ and at ‘risk of torture’.

Kanu, founded and leads the now-outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). He fled Nigeria in 2017 while on bail after soldiers reportedly attacked his family home in Abia State, South-East Nigeria.

Uchechi is threatening a judicial review against Raab, over an alleged “failure” to provide consular assistance.

Although the government has requested access to Kanu, his family said it must act with urgency, claiming his life is at risk. She said her last contact with her husband was on 18 June, when her five-year-old son sent him a Father’s Day card, and Kanu said he would call after some meetings but never did.

“He’s upset that he hasn’t heard from his dad and he does not understand,” she said.

In 2015, Kanu was arrested in Nigeria and charged with terrorism offences and incitement, after airing broadcasts calling for secession on a digital radio station, Radio Biafra, which he founded at his home in London.

POLITICS NIGERIA understands that Bindmans LLP, a multi-disciplinary London law firm, have sent a pre-action letter on behalf of the Kanu family to Raab, challenging his ongoing failure to provide consular assistance to Kanu.

  1. She is an ignorant fool who knows nothing about local and international politics the way her husband Kanu is an ignorant fool who knows nothing about local and international politics.

    Kanu and his wife has British citizenships, live in England and fighting against British interest. At the same time expect British help against British interest. They’re dead animals.

    When I said Kanu is n open prison in England, ignorant fools didn’t understand my point.

    I fought for Kanu release from Kuje prison. I fought for Ifeanyi Uba, Abaribe, Innoson release from thugs of fulani caliphate nickname EFCC. I said no Ipob lawyer should attend defeated fulani criminals mockery nickname trial, no Ipob member should attend defeated fulani criminals mockery nickname trial, no Igbo man or woman should attend defeated fulani criminals mockery nickname trial because there’s no legitimate arrest warrant with which Kanu was arrested in Kenya, there’s no legitimate repatriation documents with which Kanu was repatriated from Kenya. By so doing, no law court on earth can handle Kanu trial without legitimate documents. What happened is Kidnapping and Hostage. I said Ipob lawyers should file Kidnapping and Hostage case against fulani caliphate called Nigeria because defeated fulani criminals from Guinea which kidnapped Kanu in Kenya and held him hostage are the ones to face trial at Ecowas law court. They didn’t listen and will not get help from us again to get Kanu out of fulani criminals hostage. Kanu and his fraudulent Ipob should handle it their usual way of ignorance and illiteracy. It is Ipob affairs. It has nothing to do with the majority Igbos which stand for Biafra Republic of south east, it has nothing to do with Biafra Republic of south east.

    Kanu and his fraudulent Ipob defrauded Igbos by telling them he will get Biafra Republic of eastern region via secession from Nigeria and without war. Even when majority of Igbos decided for Biafra Republic of south east within Disintegrated Republics of this territory natives, Kanu and his fraudulent Ipob insisted on Biafra Republic of eastern region, provoking conflicts between we Igbos of south east and natives of south south geopolitical zone.

    Interim governing council of Biafra Republic led by Prof. Nnaji and Dr Ifeanyi Uba as deputy must establish embassy in Russia Federation etc. of Southern Countries Union now to coordinate military and diplomatic operations for Biafra Republic. Only the Sword decides.
