BIAFRA TO NIGERIA: RELEASE THE REMAINING IPOB DETAINEES AND RESTORE THE BATTERED IMAGE OF THE JUDICIARY

BIAFRA TO NIGERIA: RELEASE THE REMAINING IPOB DETAINEES AND RESTORE THE BATTERED IMAGE OF THE JUDICIARY

As it has become obvious to Nigerians and the world at large that the only crime committed against the Nigerian government by the detained members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is only a vehement stand that Biafra must be restored according to the international laws. IPOB highest command is demanding that Nigeria should as a matter of urgency, with its ministry of Justice and National Judicial Council (NJC) release all IPOB detainees in various prisons and DSS cells all over Nigeria. IPOB worldwide is calling on the international community to compel the Nigerian government to release all their detainees because the hurricane of the agitation for the restoration of Biafra is no longer an internal affair in Nigeria. Unless Biafrans are made to understand that Self-determination is a crime before the world when it concerns the implementation of the law to the Biafran people.

IPOB worldwide under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (De Great) wants to make the Nigeria Judicial Council under Hon Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen and Nigeria Ministry of Justice under Mal. Abubakar Malami SAN who is also the Attorney-General of Nigeria, to understand that it is the height of injustice should the Nigerian government continue to hold those agitators in detention. What the Nigeria Ministry of Justice should do now is to order the total release of IPOB detainees in order to restore the battered image of the NJC and Ministry.

Nobody should forget that the Nigerian government and its rubber stamp judiciary are still holding Mr. Benjamin Mmadubugwu, Mr David Nwawuisi and Mr Chidiebere Onwudiwe in Kuje prison over their stand for Biafra restoration. Apart from these IPOB trio listed above who were arraigned together with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in frivolous charges bothering on treasonable felony just because they demanded for Biafra restoration, there are many more uncountable number of IPOB members currently in detention in Port-Harcourt Prison, Asaba Prison, Warri Prison, Aba Prison, Nnewi Prison, Enugu Prison, Abakaliki Prison and other prisons in Biafraland and other parts of the defunct Nigeria federation.

The Nigeria Judicial Council and Nigeria Ministry of Justice should understand that injustice against Biafrans over the issue of Biafra restoration has lingered for too long and must be compensated with the total release of any person arrested in connection with Biafra agitation. If Nigeria Judiciary and Nigeria Ministry of Justice refuse to release the IPOB detainees in various prisons, then the judiciary and the Ministry are soiling the image of Nigeria the more.

If there is anything at the moment which has the ability to restore the battered image of the Nigerian judiciary, it lies in the hands of Nigeria Ministry of Justice to order the prisons to release all the Biafra detainees as the issue of Biafra agitation can only be a matter of referendum and can no longer be stopped by the use of force or detention of agitators. If the Nigerian government and its inept judiciary fail to release the detained members of IPOB, they may be insulting the sensitivity of the world especially Amnesty International for detaining those agitators for peacefully demanding for Biafra restoration which is presently the desire of about 95% of Biafran population. IPOB is now waiting for nothing more than the outright release of all Biafran agitators in various prisons in Nigeria as that is what will bring a temporal peace as referendum would be organized to test the resolve of Biafrans. I rest my case and expect NJC and the Ministry to be wise!
