THE OFFENCES OF TREASON AND FELONY IN NIGERIA: SHETTIMA OUGHT TO BE IN KUJE PRISON BY NOW

THE OFFENCES OF TREASON AND FELONY IN NIGERIA: SHETTIMA OUGHT TO BE IN KUJE PRISON BY NOW

Kashim Shettima

The theory and belief of Equality of all men before the law is termed in legal circles, as "Legal Egalitarianism". As enshrined in Article 7 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), "All humans are equal before the law and are entitled without discrimination whatsoever, to equal protection of law. Equality before the law is a basic ingredient of human rights in the constitutions of civilised democracies of the world. Embedded therein is the principle/concept of fundamental  legal system properly outlined for harmonious correlationships. All judicial officers are usually administered with the oath of office as a matter of utmost judicial requirement, to carry out their responsibilities without fear, favour, affection or ill will. It is expected from every law officer to  treat every party in any dispute fairly, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, age, religion, size, nature, political, socio-economic, academic background or any other inherent characteristics. Utmost respect and courtesy are supposedly, the inalienable hallmarks of judicial conduct.

Conversely however, there exists absolutely nothing like equality before the law of all men in the contraption called Nigeria. The law is thwarted with alacrity in this part of the world and like Akinola Aguda pointedly declared, "it is nothing but a myth created by our political rulers (political vampires and hooligans), and the so-called legal luminaries maintain cold comfort at the detriment of the down- trodden. The politicians with their misguided legal practitioners who are corruptibly partisan and "robbers", thrive ostensibly in their wicked trade. This perhaps lend credence to the description of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu when he termed Nigeria, a "Zoological Republic" where animalistic behavioral antecedents hold sway. No recourse to established law. The former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode also gave his own description of the country as "Hell Hole".

What Nigeria has, is virtually nonexistent equality before the law. George Orwell in his Animal Farm, "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others", ably described the Nigeria response to the law of equality, over the years up until the present times.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was violently abducted by the lawless Department of Security Services (DSS) on his arrival from Britain to Nigeria, getting him incarcerated for close to 2 years, in blatant violation of his human rights and court orders. This escalated the Biafra agitation and raised the bar positively for the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) as the world's most peaceful society occasioned by the matured, civilised and peaceful ways their protests were conducted, even in the face of bizarre and provocative treatments of the Nigeria combined security forces. Mass graves sprang up in parts of Biafraland, for our brethren, who were gruesomely murdered by the state.

In February this year, Amnesty International released a comprehensive report after rigorous investigations, indicting extensively, the Nigeria government for its undemocratic and inhuman treatments of a cross section of indigenous Biafrans. That damning report was tagged: "The Nigeria Army, the most deadly and murderous Army in the whole world". And to further buttress the enormity of their crimes, the Amnesty International further stated that Nigeria soldiers have stars on their shoulders but blood on their hands. It strongly condemned the Nigeria Army of being responsible for the massacre of 1,967 IPOB youths who were peacefully exercising their fundamental human rights. The Army in a brazen show of shamelessness, brazen act of barbarism and undemocratic soldiering, denied the accusations without any corresponding evidence. Similar orgy of violent treatments were tacitly carried out against the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, or the Shiites led by Sheikh Ibrahim El Zakzaky, who till date has remained illegally detained by the murderous and lawless security agencies of the Nigeria government in crass violation of court orders for his release on bail.

One remains gravely inconvincible with the totalitarian antecedents of a government that claims to be democratic. This is only prevalent in Nigeria, an evil entity called "Zoo", even in the 21st century. It is ironical to state here however that animals in the zoo are tamed and more civilized when compared with those humans who claim to be educated and find themselves at the corridors of power. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is the indefatigable, courageous and exceptionally dependable Director of IPOB worldwide and Sheikh El Zakzaky, the President of the Shiites were immorally detained by the Nigerian state that deceitfully claims to be operating the law of equality, while looking the other way even when the President of Arewa Youths Forum,

Kashim Shettima who equally committed a similar offence they claimed Mazi Nnamdi Kanu committed, is today still walking freely without any molestation. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was illegally arrested and detained under most dehumanising conditions for almost 2 years, his followers (IPOB) were killed in their thousands, some were maimed and equally incarcerated up till date with various degrees of life threatening injuries, on the accusation of committing treason and  felony for demanding for Biafra freedom and operating an illegal society.

Kashim Shettima, the leader of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum who threatened the Igbos (Biafrans) resident in the Northern region with quit notice within a mandate period of 3 months, who supposed to also have been arrested and detained for committing same treason and felony offence, with his allies are freely moving around unruffled.

The ultimatum handed down to the Igbos in the North to vacate, is a pure violation of the so-called constitution of the Nigeria and if really there is any law of equality of all peoples here, there wouldn't be any sentiment or segregation in it's application. The foregoing portrays very clearly, the fact that the Nigerian laws are made exclusively for some class of people while yet claiming deceitfully, "One-Nigeria". The laws of the Islamic/Hausa-Fulani Republic and the illegal DSS, are created to muzzle the interests of a section of the populace resident in this evil concoction of the British. We should remember that Kashim Shettima, the President of the Arewa Youths Movement, was linked to the deadly gang that was behind the scam called Chibok girls kidnap which was predicated on his unhidden disdain for the former President, Goodluck Jonathan and up till now, nothing tangible has been done about that.
Innocent people are today being detained and humiliated under the guise of committing treason and felony, thereby allowing the ordained enemies of the state to roam about just because of the section of the country they belong.

The DSS must live up to its billing if really it is not created as an official jihadistic security agency commissioned to carry out clandestine activities against perceived enemies. These bunch of Islamic Northerners should not be seen nor handled therefore as "sacred cows" in the face of these brazen acts of criminality if Nigeria is not deceiving herself with the delusional and hypocritical gospel of the law of equality. And of genuine unity and wellbeing of all persons, there must not be this theory of "different strokes for different folks".

"Justice delayed is justice denied", so says William Ewart Gladstone.

  1. For those Biafrans especially some foolish Igbos and stupid Nigerians, where is one Nigeria here. The quit notice handed down by Arewa Youths is treason and must be punished. The worst is that these senseless Arewa Youths are even being backed and defended by Northern Elders. So, where is the so-called unity and one-Nigeria being preached coward Yemi Osinbajo and other political fools. Nigeria is an Islamic country, a murderous, abominable sharia republic. We must exit this abomination. We cannot continue in this stupidity, foolishness, lawlessness, corruption and failed zoo.

  2. We should remember, we are not interested in their being punished, for Chukwu Okike Abiama is in control and He is making every step taken by our enemies including saboteurs within us to expose their foolishness and evil intent for the world to see and to further justify our demand for freedom which the restoration of Biafra stands for. We should rejoice whenever their actions goes contrary to the laws of any civilize democracies. They should not punish them, their actions is to our advantage. May God be praised. ALL HAIL BIAFRA!!! God bless Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB family world wide.
