The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has asked the Department of State Services (DSS) to release his personal effects.
In a statement issued on Thursday in Umuahia, IPOB expressed sadness over the refusal of the DSS to release Kanu’s personal effects to the family.
The statement, signed by the group’s Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful, listed the seized items as “Kanu’s British and Nigerian passports, wedding ring, shoes, sandals, clothes, eyeglass, £2000, and N97,000.”
The group contended that since the DSS did not include those items as exhibits at the court, it ought to release them to Kanu’s family.
It accused the Federal Government of nursing ulterior motives by not “incidenting” the seized items as exhibits nor releasing them to Kanu’s family.
The group, therefore, called on the international community to note the continued maltreatment of Biafran agitators by the Nigerian authorities
