Jarvis Jonson, the representative of District 139 in the Texas House of Representatives, has urged the Nigerian government to immediately and unconditionally release the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu from detention.
Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, since June
2021 after he was re-arrested in Kenya and renditioned to Nigeria by the Nigerian
government for continued trial on treasonable felony and terrorism charges pressed
against him by the state government.
Recall that on October 13, 2022, a three-man panel of the Court of Appeal judges had in a unanimous decision, ruled that Kanu’s rendition from Kenya was illegal while also discharging and acquitting Kanu of all charges. The court then ordered his immediate and unconditional release from detention.
