Nnamdi Kanu, the imprisoned head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has informed the Federal Government that he will not plead for his release, following his acquittal by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The IPOB leader, in a letter signed by his lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome,

expressed that seeking his release now would disrespect the memory of late Mbazulike Amechi, who had desperately requested his own release from the South-East to Abuja, only to be ignored by the government.

Kanu mentioned that he won’t plead with the federal government since the Appeal Court’s decision still stands.

He thanked supporters for advocating his release and emphasized that the Court of Appeal’s judgment has cleared him of charges.

Kanu believes that appealing for his release would be an affront to Mbazulike Amechi’s memory and suggests focusing on expediting the appeal process instead.
