Declare Nnamdi Kanu an international protected person, U.N

Former U.S Attorney General Tells UN: Designate Nnamdi Kanu as
Internationally Protected Person Controversial former U.S
attorney-general Bruce Fein has urged the United Nations Security
Council, under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter to
designate Nnamdi Kanu as an “internationally protected person” as
defined in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of
Crimes Against Internationally Protected Persons, Including
Diplomatic Agents. Article I of the Convention defines an “internationally protected person as “A Head of State, including any member of a collegial body performing the functions of a Head of State under the constitution of the State concerned, a Head of Government or a Minister of Foreign Affairs, whenever such person is in a foreign
state. The acts and utterances of IPOB were acts and utterances of
terrorists, said the federal government after the organization was
proscribed, but Fein in a fresh appeal to the world body said that
Nnamdi Kanu, qualifies as a ‘Head of State.’ “In sum, Nnamdi
Kanu, qualifies as a “Head of State” under the Convention. He is
one of a group of IPOB leaders who perform the core government
function in the South East region of Nigeria of protecting the
physical safety of innocent civilian Biafrans from predation or
murder by Hausa-Fulani terrorists. He is subject de facto to
Nigerian martial law. He possesses lesser rights than a foreign diplomat in Nigeria. Mr. Kanu is a de facto foreigner in Nigeria and a Head of State in de facto foreign territory in the South East within the meaning of the Convention.” “The United Nations Security Council, through a resolution or otherwise, should designate Mr. Kanu as an
internationally protected person.
His status falls within the jurisdiction of the Security Council under
Chapter VII of the Charter because the Nigerian Government’s
threatened force or violence against him threatens international
peace and security in West Africa and elsewhere.”
“As an internationally protected person, Mr. Kanu falls within the
protections of the Convention. Under Article 4.
