ECOWAS COURT FULL REPORT : Nigeria government absconds from court having failed to manipulate the judges.

ECOWAS COURT FULL REPORT : Nigeria government  absconds from court having failed to manipulate the judges.


The indigenous people of Biafra took the Nigerian government to ECOWAS court today demanding for justice for the unlawful detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu; but surprisingly, the Nigerian Defense Council absconded from the court sitting.
However, they submitted a letter only this morning claiming they have a case in Kaduna, as the sole reason for their absence.

At the beginning of the court session, Nigerian government, through the Minister of Justice applied for adjournment. There was a short interrogation between the ECOWAS judge, Hon. Justice Friday Nwoke and Nnamdi Kanu's Counsel, Barr.  Ifeanyi Ejioffor.

 Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor pleaded to be given compensation of one million naira, as a result of his wasted transportation fare. He also pleaded for short adjournment of the trial. His pleas were granted, and the case was adjourned to November 8 2016. According to the presiding judge, the proceedings must hold on November 8 whether the Nigerian government appears in court or not.

Having known that ECOWAS court will humiliate them today, the Nigerian government refused to show up in court. Since the beginning of this court case this is the first time that the federal government has refused to appear in court.

Meanwhile, evidence abounds that the Nigeria government, having failed to manipulate the judges just as it has been their trademark in Nigerian courts, having now decided to run away from their shadow- But for how long?

The action of the Nigerian government at today's ECOWAS court proceedings signifies that they have been manipulating Nigerian courts. It portrays the level of incompetency in the Nigeria judiciary, which prompted Nnamdi Kanu to seek for justice at ECOWAS court.

Nigeria courts are not a place where someone whose right have been trampled upon seeks redress and get justice. No wonder Nnamdi Kanu said during one of his court trials:
 ” I will not receive a fair trial before this court. The information I got is that I will not receive a fair trial before this court.

“I will not sacrifice the due process of law because of speedy court process over the principle of natural process on the altar of speedy release. In other words, I would rather remain in detention than subject myself to a trial that I know amounts to perversion of justice.
“Your lordship, previous court rulings have been given by courts of competent jurisdiction in this country, Nigeria which were not carried out by the DSS.”

Buhari has vowed never to respect court rulings which have ordered for the immediate releases of Nnamdi Kanu. It should also be recalled that during one of the court trials of Nnamdi Kanu, the presiding judge, Justice Mohammed,   while exempting himself from the trial frowned on the repeated violations of court orders by the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally.
The world is watching the insincerity of Nigeria government in this case as we urge all the world leaders , EU parliament, UN , ECOWAS court, to rise and shun the continuous  autocratic tendencies of Buhari and his government.

  1. Buhari has bastardized and destroyed Nigeria's judiciary system. Africa and the world has no respect for Nigeria and its judiciary system anymore. What a country and coward citizenry. God forbid. Biafrans must exit this failed State and useless country called Nigeria.

  2. They can run, but they cannot hide. We will catch them and they know what will happen. All hail Biafra!
