Abuku said this in response to an email regarding Kanuâ€™s letter to the High Commission.
The statement read, â€œWe 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.â€
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, â€œIt 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.â€
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.
