The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday says it has begun the process of securing the freedom of some of its members arrested in Ghana.
Aloy Ejimakor, one of the lawyers representing the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in a post on social media platform said he has sent some documents that would aid the release of the arrested members.
The Ghanaian police had arrested some members of the group around Mallam Junction in Accra, while they were having their monthly meeting.
Ejimakor said that he has sent certain legal documents critical to the defense of the IPOB faithful currently distressed in Ghana.
The goal according to him was to quickly secure their freedom and prevent their “rendition to injustices” in Nigeria.”
Recall that IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is facing trial for alleged terrorism, treason, running an illegal company, publishing defamatory material and illegal possession of firearms.
The Nigerian authorities had arrested Kanu abroad and extradicted him to back to Nigeria for jumping bail and leaving the country in 2017.
IPOB members all over the world and many South-East leaders have called on the Nigerian government to free Kanu unconditionally, saying his arrest was illegal.
