Open Letter To All Nigerian Media Houses On The Persecution/Prosecution of A Prisoner of Conscience - Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
January 10, 2022

It is no more news that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been verifiably to be extraordinarily renditioned from Kenya to Nigeria against international laws as confirmed by the court of competent jurisdiction of Kenya judiciary. What should be the news is that Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu is now officially a prisoner of conscience. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a fugitive as they    would always lie but rather he is the leader of the Indeginous People of Biafra. Mazi  Nnamdi Kanu, was born a Biafran as evidenced in his birth certificate, his traveling documents while in Kenya for a diplomatic discourse shows that he is a British citizen under the British government citizenship and immigration laws. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, legally travelled to Kenya with a documented passport meeting every immigration process.

The President of Nigeria has come out to give reasons why  the Nigeria Government violated international laws and involved herself in the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, back to Nigeria while he was on national television. President Muhammadu Buhari, in answering a question thrown to him by Mr. Shehu of Channels Television about his initial pledge to the delegations of South East Igbo elders that he would consider a political solution on the matter involving the IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Muhammadu Buhari while responding to the question reversed from his initial promise.

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, itemized unnecessary points why his government actually involved herself in international kidnapping of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which in actual fact, his government violated international law to extraordinary renditioning Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria to continue with his trial, President Muhammadu Buhari maintained that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should be given the opportunity to defend himself in the court of law. According to President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was extraordinary renditioned and kidnapped from Kenya back to Nigeria though Nnamdi Kanu a British citizen with a British passport was  importunity abusing and criticizing his government while in Europe and should be charged to defend himself in Nigeria under Nigeria system after all that Nnamdi Kanu was a Nigerian.

The above statement from the President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria with the closing remarks "as if he was not a Nigeria", proved that Muhammadu Buhari was very honest to have acknowledged that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu though formerly a Nigerian citizen by his official traveling documents has already denounced his Nigerian citizenship and only can be recognized as a Biafran by virtue of his birth certificate and a British citizen by virtue of his official traveling document.
Who is a prisoner of conscience in this context ?.

A prisoner of conscience is an individual or person's imprisoned for the peaceful expression of his/her political, religious, or other conscientiously held beliefs, or for his/her identity, even though he or she have neither used nor advocated for the use of violence against the state. With the above definition of a prisoner of conscience, one will agree with me that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has met all the requirements to be declared "a prisoner of conscience" and should be regarded as so for his incessant demand for self-determination for his people of Biafra.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is in the Nigerian government Department of State Security dark dungeon undergoing persecution, incarceration, starvation and all manner of ill human treatments not because he committed any crime known to law but because of his avowed political view and his identity as a Biafran. Agitation for self-determination is a universal right promulgated in the United Nations Charter and that of African Union Charter, it is also as well domesticated in the Nigeria 1999 constitution.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is demanding for a referendum for his Biafran people tramped in a man made hell-hole called Nigeria. Mazi Kanu's request is a civilized demand approvable in every democratic settings recognized internationally and the world are aware of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's quest and they are keenly watching if Nigeria will behave themselves to be respected by other nations.

Hence my call to Nigeria media houses is to live far above Brown envelop journalism; they should refrain from rather than helping a tyrannical government of Nigeria to promote falsehood and media smear propaganda that will help the already indicted Nigerian Government to carry out their already in the mill planned miscarriage of justice against the IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigeria media houses must at all time place professionalism and unbiased report as a decorum rather than protecting the image of a primitive Fulani controlled government of APC.

Today, internationally Nigerian media houses are known for her brown envelope journalism. For the past six or seven months now the Nigerian Department of State Security kidnapped Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, illegally arraigned him in Justice Binta Nyako's court, several court rulings had been flouted by the biased DSS outfit, but the Nigerian media outlets keeps hyping every smear propaganda from the Nigerian Government in order to place Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on media trial against the normal court trial. Nigeria media houses should understand that injustice to one is an injustice to all, It is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu today against the Federal Government of Nigeria and probably it is going to be another person tomorrow eventually Biafra leaves at the conclusion of Kanu's ordeal in the hands of a bloody tyrant.

The essence of having media houses all over the world is to fight evil to a halt, to serve justice and truth, but in the case of Nigerian, it is an effective tool in the hands of the government of the day to lie for them, they help the government to persecute and prosecute anybody who is not in conformity with the government ill vices against the populace. In Nigeria, the man with bigger money gets favour during execution of justice. As the prosecution and persecution of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is going on, let your smear propaganda address the potential involvement of the dictator in Aso Rock. When you do dirty jobs for a tender dictator, he would grow to be above the law and neither you will be spared. I therefore call on Biafrans and IPOB Media to sit up and respond with brave heart any media assault aimed at discrediting our leader during this time. If today any man is in the Nigeria's DSS dungeon living with unquestionable character, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the man. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu today is certified a prisoner of conscience because of his political views which is not in tandem with the political views of the Fulani oppressive ruling class. We must stand tall with our leader in every thick and thin of this trying time as there will be no avenue for retreat nor surrender and at the end we shall prevail.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
Mazi Anyi Kings.
