The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has revealed what the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, wants.
According to Sowore, all the pro-Biafra leader wants is justice.
Sowore said the “torture” being meted out to Kanu was the reason why Nigeria as a country “was not progressing nor peaceful” under the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
Sowore stated this in a statement after attending the hearing of Kanu’s case at the Appeal Court in Abuja.
“Today, I attended the continued trial of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, at the Court of Appeal in Abuja. I met his lawyers, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Aloy Ejimakor and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, and many others as they concluded arguments asking the appellate judges to quash the remaining charges against Kanu.
“The unjust incarceration, torture, and extraordinary rendition involved in his trial is clearly a reason Nigeria under the Buhari regime may never achieve peace, progress, and prosperity.
“I’ve met Mazi Kanu in person and I understand him well enough to state that what he wants is justice,” Sowore said.
