BIAFRA: BRINGING TO THE ATTENTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS BIAFRA AGITATORS HELD IN NIGERIA PRISONS WITHOUT TRIAL

BIAFRA: BRINGING TO THE ATTENTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS BIAFRA AGITATORS HELD IN NIGERIA PRISONS WITHOUT TRIAL



By Mazi Onyebuchi Eze

As Nigerian judiciary has become completely confused due to perceived injustice against Biafra agitators as being pressure into by the lawless Nigerian government through perennial court contempt, it has become increasingly difficult for the Nigerian judiciary to dispense justice as regards to Biafra agitators held in detention for 3 calendar years now. 

Among Biafra detainees held for 3 years now without trial includes David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Mmadubugwu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa and Nnamdi Kanu who was granted bail by the court on April 25, 2017 but was later captured by Nigerian army during a murderous raid in his residence in Umuahia on firm instruction of Nigerian government who is accusing him of committing treason due to his quest for Biafra self-determination. 

The first 3 among the list have been seriously held in Kuje prison without trial for 3 years instead it is the bail application and adjournment upon adjournment that Nigerian Federal High Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako continued with since 3 years ago when these Biafra self-determination agitators were arraigned with the bogus and empty treasonable felony charges against them.

On the issue of Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, the Federal High Court in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state has discharged and acquitted him unconditionally with #5, 000, 000 compensation by Nigerian government when the court found out after trial that the agitator (Bright Chimezie) committed no crime in the course of his Biafra agitation but Nigerian DSS on the firm instruction of Nigerian government refused to obey court verdict by releasing Mr. Bright Chimezie. Since almost one year now that Bright Chimezie was acquitted unconditionally by court verdict, Nigerian government has flagrantly refused to release him as ordered by the court not to talk about paying him the compensation. 

On the issue of Nnamdi Kanu, he has been successfully granted bail by the Federal High Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako but the bail was truncated when Nigeria army invaded his residence and recaptured him and kept incommunicado in the firm instruction of Nigerian government. Nigerian government has become a serious threat to the rule of law in Africa because the unprecedented and alarming rate of court contempt and human right violations committed by Nigeria government is already reaching to a worrisome dimension and setting a dangerous precedence before other nations in Africa.

It is upon this ground that I consider it necessary to call on the human rights organisations all over the world to come to the rescue of the rule of law in Africa in general and Biafra detainees in particular. Human Rights organizations in Nigeria and around the world could be making mistakes if they overlook the unlawful detention of these Biafra detainees because Biafra is involved. This is because injustice anywhere in world is a threat to justice everywhere in the world. Today, these Biafra agitators could be tasting the venom of injustice and human right violation in the hands of the tyrannical government of Nigeria but who knows the next victim because tyrannical government is like mad dog having no friends but can bite anybody standing on her way.



It is time for human right organizations both local and international to wake up from their slumber because they have stayed quiet for too long over the impunity of Nigerian government against Biafra people held in detention across Biafraland and in Kuje prison of Abuja Nigeria. If the human rights organisations fail to live up to their calling from the Mother Justine because of the fear of victimization of tyranny or Ghana Must Go bags from Aso Rock, then the Mother Justice will hold them responsible for keeping quiet or standing at ease in the days of tyranny. Human Rights organizations must prevail on Nigerian government to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to enjoy his bail granted him by a court. Human Rights organizations must persuade Nigerian judiciary to save the image of judiciary and protect human right by granting bail to Benjamin Mmadubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe because they have stayed longer than necessary in detention without proper trial. 

They must pressurize Nigeria government to obey court verdict given that Bright Chimezie should be released because the verdict was given by a competent court. It is not good for human right organizations to be in a society that indulges in abuse of human right as being done by Nigeria government and stay at ease. An idea human right personnel can die defending human right. We hereby bring to the knowledge of these human right organizations the detention of Biafra agitators for them to do what they supposed to do in defense of human right. I rest my case!
