The United Kingdom says it has been visiting the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi kanu, in prison.

A spokesman for the British High Commission, Mr. Joe Abuku, said this in an email sent to our correspondent on Friday.

Abuku said this in response to an email regarding Kanu’s letter to the High Commission.

The statement read, “We have provided assistance to Mr. Kanu since his arrest in October last year, including visiting him regularly in prison and attending court appearances in an observation capacity.”

The detained Biafran agitator, who is also a British citizen, had written a letter through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, that the British government should not abandon him.

He had said, “It is repeating the obvious to state that our client is a full British citizen, by virtue of which position he is entitled to all rights, privileges and protection, guaranteed under the British laws and conventions.”

He also argued that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had violently abused his fundamental human rights through his prolonged detention in prison custody, adding that there was no way he would get a fair hearing.

    DO NOT CRY WOLF NOW KANU, HAVE A NICE TIME IN THE PRISON.

    YOU CANNOT BE BRITISH AND NIGERIAN AT THE SAME TIME. AS A BRITISH, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO STIR UP BIAFRA TROUBLE ONCE AGAIN. AS YOU KNOW 3 MILLION WERE KILLED IN THE EARLIER BIAFRA WAR. SO YOU DID NOT LEARN ANY LESSON FROM THAT?? NOW, IT IS BETTER FOR ONE MAN TO DIE THAN FOR 3 MILLION TO DIE AGAIN.

    KANU, DO YOU GET MY MASSAGE???
