Nnamdi Kanu must not spend Christmas in prison - Bishop

Bishop Abraham Chris Udeh has warned that Nnamdi Kanu must not spend this year’s Christmas in Kuje prisons.

Bishop Udeh, who doubles as the General Overseer of Mount Zion Faith Global Ministries blamed Kanu’s incarceration on lack of interest of the international community.

He particularly called on Britain to assist the Indigenous People of Biafra gain their independence.

Bishop Udeh said if the United Nations, USA and United Kngodom had questioned Kanu’s detention, he would have been released by now.

He said that the British government was only trying to protect her economic interests in Nigeria.

Bishop Udeh described Nnamdi Kani as “A freedom fighter, who have been left behind bars for no just cause.”

The Bishop said that the UN and United States of America, which is a known policeman of the world should rise to the occasion and mount pressure on the Nigerian government to release Nnamdi Kanu between now and December, 2016.

He added that it would be a very painful thing to the people of South East and South South, if Kanu would be in prison to celebrate this year’s Christmas.

He noted that Fulani herdsmen had been on rampage killing and maiming people here and there with reckless abandon and have gone scot-free.

The Federal Government is yet to tell Nigerians how those herdsmen acquired the AK47 and other arms and ammunition they use to attack innocent Nigerians.

But only someone who talks about freedom of his people verbally, without weapons, would be thrown into jail and denied his freedom since October, 2015, he said.
