BIAFRA: IPOB VS NIGERIA GOVT CASE OF PROSCRIPTION: A CASE OF VERDICT SOMERSAULTS IN NIGERIA FEDERAL HIGH COURT

BIAFRA: IPOB VS NIGERIA GOVT CASE OF PROSCRIPTION: A CASE OF VERDICT SOMERSAULTS IN NIGERIA FEDERAL HIGH COURT

By Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

The case between the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria  at the Nigerian Federal High Court, Abuja presided over by Hon Justice Abdul Kafarati (a supposed Acting Chief Judge of Nigerian Federal High Court), over the designation of IPOB as a terrorist organisation is a pure case of verdict somersault in the Nigerian judiciary, caused by the  half-baked quota system of the Judiciary. It could be recalled that, Justice Abdul Kafarati embarrassed the Nigerian Judiciary before International Community in September 2017, when he granted a black market judicial order in his personal obscure chamber to satisfy the ungodly yearning of the Nigerian Attorney General, Abubakar Malami SAN, who cluelessly sought for ratification of the Judge in an application on behalf of the Nigerian government to enable him designate IPOB a terrorist organisation at the ungodly yearning by the Nigerian government.

Justice Abdul Kafarati not minding the fact that he was at that time the Acting Chief Judge of the Nigerian Federal High Court, disgraced the Nigerian judiciary before International Community by his quick grant of obnoxious order for the Nigerian government to designate IPOB as a terrorist organisation which no reasonable nation  of the world including the United Kingdom, United States, France and many others have agreed to accept. That became a serious judicial verdict  somersaults in the Nigerian judiciary when Justice Abdul Kafarati ignored the yet to be vacated court verdict given by Justice Binta Nyako of same Nigeria Federal High Court, Abuja where she delivered a judgment that IPOB is not an unlawful organization after her all round judicial drills and analysis on the general composition, registration though in UK and other foreign nations and open activities of IPOB all over the world.

One now wonders what new development has taken place of late in IPOB general activities except their unbendable quest for Biafra restoration, upon which Justice Abdul Kafarati based his black market ruling that IPOB should be declared a terrorist organisation. As the whole world has rejected the designation of IPOB as a terrorist group and coupled with the yet to be vacated court verdict given by Justice Binta Nyako in March 1 2017 wherein IPOB was ruled as a lawful organisation, Justice Abdul Kafarati will purge himself of the court contempt again, which he committed in his chamber  in   September  2017, when he granted the black market court order, if he quash the obnoxious designation of IPOB as terrorists come January 17, 2018.

Justice Abdul Kafarati has indeed rubbished the Nigerian judiciary but all hope is not completely lost with the Nigerian judiciary as Justice Abdul Kafarati is expected to do an image laundry on the Nigerian judiciary and purge himself of the court contempt which he committed against the court verdict of March 1, 2017 . Justice Kafarati would not have gone close to IPOB  by designating it  a terrorist organisation  without hearing from IPOB as he eventually did on November 14, 2017 and by this he is guilty of court contempt.

As Justice Kafarati has listened to  both the counsel to IPOB and the Nigerian government in an open court which he should have done before granting the black market ruling in his chamber, it is important  he respects his wig and set aside the obnoxious black market order in the interest of the image of the Nigerian judiciary. It is still a judicial miscarriage for two Judges of same Nigerian Federal High Court to give two conflicting rulings on IPOB when the first ruling is yet to be vacated.

I  rest my case!
