The Lead Counsel to detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) has written to the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN) seeking the “immediate and unconditional release” of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

In a letter obtained by CITY LAWYER and dated October 17, 2022, Ozekhome said the application for Kanu’s release was based on the strength of the Court of Appeal decision which discharged Kanu, urging Malami to “immediately comply with the judgment of the Court herein attached.” The letter was received by Malami’s office the same day.

He also asked Malami to “order the immediate and unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, now being illegally held in solitary confinement in State Security Service facility at the Abuja Headquarters.”

The full text of the letter is below.
