The embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari for his release from detention.

Naija News reports that the Biafra Nation agitator is in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) following his repatriation to Nigeria from abroad.

In a petition submitted to President Buhari on Tuesday, October 3, Kanu seek an order for his immediate release.

The petition that was signed by his team of lawyers led by Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, urged President Buhari to direct his unconstitutional release from the custody of the Department of State Service, DSS, through a more productive “political solution”.

“You can do this by instructing the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation to wield his powers under section 174 of the 1999 Constitution to enter a ‘nolle prosecute.

“This will immediately halt the present restlessness and sit-at-home mantra currently ravaging the South East and paralysing business and normal life”, Vanguard quoted Kanu’s petition as saying.

Naija News understands that President Buhari received the petition through the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN.
