Jarvis Johnson, a member of the Texas House of Representatives, representing District 139, on Tuesday wrote to the United States (US) government led by President Joe Biden, urging authorities to facilitate the “unconditional release” of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained British-Nigerian leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that in the letter, Johnson told Biden that: “The Abia State High Court judgment of January 19, 2022, exonerated Kanu from jumping bail”.

He also accused the Nigerian government of failing to comply with legal mandates.

“Kanu’s only offence is his persistent for the Nigerian government with the assistance of the international community to conduct a free and fair referendum as a peaceful means of resolving the “national question” in Nigeria,” the letter partly reads.

Reacting to Johnson’s letter, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s Special Counsel, thanked the American politician.

“Thank you @jarvisjohnsontx. Enough said!” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle on Wednesday.

    1. Guantanamo Bay in Cuba holds foreign terrorists against the USA that were captured overseas and are deemed inadmissible to the US. Is Nnamdi Kanu a terrorist and a foreigner? The world knows Kanu as a freedom fighter and Nigeria can’t change that. Nigeria doesn’t not respect even its laws as exemplified by undoing what its court has stated.

    2. Isibo, people like you are the reasons why Nigeria is moving backwards. If you want to remain a slave forever no problem but consider your innocent children.

    3. Honestly you sound so pathetic because if we really know what’s coming that made Nnamdi Kanu and people like Danjuma to be shouting for the world to hear, you wouldn’t be spilling trash from your mouth

  1. Thank you honourable I really appreciate your efforts on our country Nigeria I believe soon our government will let him go and be free for live thank you
