Kanu didn’t apologize, says lawyer

Kanu didn’t apologize, says lawyer

It is impossible that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and director of Radio Biafra, tendered an apology to President Muhammadu Buhari, his lawyer, Vincent Obetta, has said.

Obetta said reports of Kanu’s apology were proof that government was trying to use all instruments at its disposal to “puncture” the Biaffra campaigner’s defence. “It is not true,” he said. “The government is using every instrument to puncture what we are doing.” The Department of State Services (DSS) arraigned Kanu in court in October. Shuaibu Usman, presiding over the chief magistrate court, Wuse zone 2, Abuja, had earlier discharged him on all counts of criminal conspiracy and ownership of an unlawful society brought against him by the federal government.

The federal government then filed a fresh five-count charge of treasonable felony against Kanu, after Adeniyi Ademola, a justice of the federal high court, Abuja, ordered the DSS to release him “unconditionally”. In his ruling, Ademola held that the continued detention of Kanu by the DSS was unlawful, since the accused was yet to be charged on suspicion of terrorism.

Speaking before the federal high court the following day, Kanu said he has lost confidence in the court’s abilities to give an order and have the authorities follow it, asking the court to leave him in detention. “I will rather remain in detention than subject myself to a trial that I know amounts to perversion of justice,” he had said.

  1. THIS SHOWS HOW DESPERATE THEY ARE! DID THEY NOT SAY BIAFRA ISSUE DOES NOT POSE A DANGER TO THE UNITY OF NIGERIA? AND THAT MAJORITY OF OUR PEOPLE DON'T WANT BIAFRA?

    SO, WHY ARE THEY STRUGGLING LIKE A FISH CAUGHT BY A FISHING HOOK... SHOWING OFF THEIR DESPERATION BY ALL QUESTIONABLE AND NON-CIVILIZED MEANS? DOES IT NOT SHOW THAT THEY HAVE FAILED AGAIN? OF COURSE, WHY WON'T THEY FAIL WHEN THEY FABRICATE AND BUILD ON LIES AND FALSEHOOD!

    BIAFRA RESTORATION IF BASED ON NOTHING BUT UNDILUTED TRUTH THAT IS HUNTING AFTER ALL OF THEM,AND WON'T LET THEM FREE UNTIL BIAFRA REPUBLIC IS RESTORED! IT IS TOO LATE,THEY CAN'T DECEIVE US AGAIN USING DISGUISE IN WHATEVER FORM OR SHAPE!ALL HAIL BIAFRA!

  4. Shame on those that call themselves nigeria, isn't it abvious that they are by all means making their animalistic behaviour known the more to the world. It is no longer Nnamdi Kanu that is exposing them but themselves are doing so. This false publication is something that can no longer be tolerated. I want to let them know that Chukwu Okike Abiama will always prove to them that he is Our God and will always give us victory in the end. Biafra is our live and we shall all gloriously match to our Promise Land 'BIAFRA'
