Nnamdi Kanu petitions UN, US and Russia over army invasion

In letter addressed to Office of the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights, Palais des Nations CH-1211, Geneva 10, Switzerland, a team of IPOB international lawyers based in US and Nigeria have petitioned UN, US and Russia over the invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s residence and the recent tension in south-East Nigeria.


The group also claimed Nnamdi Kanu’s rights to freedom of speech, association and religion, has also been violated. The petition seeks the intervention of the UN human rights arm in the crisis in South-East Nigeria.

The team of the US-based lawyers led by Bruce E. Fein, W. Bruce DelValle, alongside their Nigerian-based Attorney, Aloy Ejimakor, approached the UN human rights on behalf of the IPOB leader, IPOB members and pro-Biafra agitators.

Here an excerpt from the letter;
On behalf of the 50 million Igbo people of Nigeria, organized under the umbrella of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by Nnamdi Kanu, the Nelson Mandela of Nigeria, this office together with Nigerian Barrister Aloy Ejimakor (IPOB general counsel) calls your attention to the Nigerian government’s authorized shootings and killings of Mr. Kanu’s guests at his home by elements of Nigerian Army late Sunday, September 10, 2017.
We are convinced the Nigerian government intended to assassinate Mr Kanu because of his Igbo ancestry, Judaic religion, and political views. It’s nefarious designs were thwarted by the unanticipated presence of numerous visitors to Mr Kanu at the time of his scheduled extrajudicial murder by the Nigerian Army under colour of Nigerian law.
According to 10 credible Nigerian newspaper reports, many of the visitors were seriously wounded in the Army attack. Fatalities have been reported. Due to the developing nature of this incident, definitive information is unavailable at this time. But enough is known to justify an international response to prevent convulsion in Nigeria that would threaten international peace and security.
