The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has decried the high number of Nigerians, especially inmates of the Hausa-Fulani stock languishing in Kuje prison without trial.

Kanu made this appeal on Monday, after the hearing of his bail application at Federal High Court (FCT) in Abuja.

The IPOB leader, who is currently on trial for alleged treasonable felony against the Federal Government, also spoke on behalf some Hausa-Fulani detainees.

He stressed that over 2000 detainees are languishing in Kuje prison with some of them spending almost five years without trial.

The Biafran activist also used the opportunity to address the family members of the detainees.

He said: “These people have been in detention for five years without trial. That’s what they do in this country, very terrible.

“Over two thousand people locked down there without trial and this is not justice in any shape or form. Here, people don’t reason. That’s why they are detained. Their children have been there for a very long time.

“Usman Abubakar is in detention; Motab Umar is in detention; and DSS don’t want to bring them to court. Ibrahim Yahaya is there as well, Musa Karamu is also there.”
