NNAMDI KANU : ECOWAS COURT MOVES KANU'S CASE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY TO AVOID POLLUTION OF JUSTICE

NNAMDI KANU: ECOWAS COURT MOVES KANU'S CASE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY TO AVOID POLLUTION OF JUSTICE

By Paul Ihechi Alagba
For Family Writers

Facts have emerged that the International Court of the Economic Community of West African States(ECOWAS), has shifted the proceedings of the case brought before it by the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) and leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to a yet to be disclosed African country.

According to the information made available to Family Writers, the inter-state transfer of adjudication was paramount as a result of increased pressure resulting from the paranoia being felt by the Nigerian government over the anticipated unpleasant final verdict that will emanate from IPOB/Nnamdi Kanu's suit.

It would be recalled that earlier in March 2016, IPOB backed up by their incarcerated leader Nnamdi Kanu had filed an 800million Dollars worth of suit at the West African regional court through Hon. Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor Esq, over the continued impunitious incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu since October 14 2015, as well as numerous rights abuses and extrajudicial killings of Biafran activists by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Meanwhile, facts have emerged that there has been an increased tension on the Nigerian government over the suit, as it is certain to all and sundry that Biafrans and Nnamdi Kanu have enough evidences to get justice from the ECOWAS court. It is as a result of this precedent that led to the influential move of the Nigerian government three months ago in which the federal government asked the regional court to back-off from Nnamdi Kanu's case.

In May earlier this year, the Nigerian government through the Federal Ministry of Justice had written to ECOWAS Court of Justice to strike out the suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, stating that the regional court lacks the competent jurisdiction to entertain such case as it is "an abuse of court process or subjecting the Nigerian law to ridicule".
A part of the letter reads thus-
 
“The corporate existence of Nigeria as a united, harmonious, indivisible and indissoluble sovereign nation is certainly greater than any citizen’s liberty or right and it survives in pieces rather than in peace”, individual’s liberty or rights may not even exist.

“It is trite law that a court cannot assume jurisdiction over ancillary claims when it has no jurisdiction to entertain the main claim, since an ancillary claim can only be properly determined by that court. Thus, it is improper to approach a court which is incompetent to determine only some of the issues in a case if there is a court with jurisdiction to determine all the issues

  2. Biafra as a name, a nation and an entity, and nigeria which one came first? Which one is older than the other?
    Biafra existed before 1686, as there are documents, maps the prove the existence of Biafra before 1686, but nigeria as a fraud, british fraud in West Africa, came into existence on 1st January, 1914, as a corrupted experiment to last but only 100years.
    From 01/01/1914 to 01/01/2014, the 100 years is over. Therefore, nigeria today is an Expired Product and stands to be desolved.

  7. The God of Heaven, the God of Justice, is on our side as Biafrans. I trust that the ECOWAS Court will do justice to the concocted case. We all as Biafrans gave our mandate in the agitation for the restoration of the Sovereign State of Biafra to our beloved brother and humble servant - Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. If, according to Buhari, the Pharaoh of Nigeria, Nnamdi is guilty of committing a treasonable offense, then we all as Biafrans, who gave Nnamdi our mandate, are guilty altogether. But the case being a CONCOCTED one, Nwa Chineke (Nnamdi Kanu) is innocent and we all Biafrans are innocent. This Prophet of our time Nnamdi Kanu predicted that he and Biafrans will SUFFER all these PERSECUTIONS but that "...in the end, we will PREVAIL and Biafra will come." My counsel to us all is to be PRAYERFUL and RESOLUTE and to ENDURE. The Bible says He that will come, will come and not tarry. VICTORY IS SURE. Each time I listen to Nnandi Kanu's Radio Biafra broadcast on September 20, 2015 during his visit to IPOB family in HONG KONG, I weep. It's like all he said on that day immediately began to happen on getting back to the ZOO, called Nigeria. I enjoin every Biafran to listen to it over and over again. LONG LIVE NNAMDI KANU, LONG LIVE BIAFRA! LONG LIVE CHUKWUOKIKE ABIAMA! (AZUBUIKE FROM IGWEOCHA)
