Friday 9 March 2018

The proven ignorance and unprofessional stance of  Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja-based Federal High Court, to the law and it's interpretation, as it pertains to the murderous invasion of the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is not just only disgusting but shamefully disappointing. The Nigerian Army on the 14th of September 2017, callously invaded the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide - Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Afara-ukwu, Ibeku, Umuahia in Abia State, killing many unarmed innocent Biafrans, destroying properties worth millions of United States dollars, abducting and keeping him incommunicado eversince.

There has not been any access to medication by him neither has any member of his family allowed by his captors (Nigerian Army) to visit him. It was this bizarre action against a man that was granted bail by  the court, that prompted  the ongoing barrage of instituted legal fireworks between the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Buhari led Federal Government and it's Army. The Federal High Court, Abuja, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako, has been trifling with the legal procedures to please her shamelessly lawless Federal Government of Nigeria which is her employer.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, fully dissatisfied with the mess of the judicial process, has in very unmistakable terms, threatened to summon the Nigerian government anywhere in the world that she believes justice will not be tinkered with, to press for the immediate release of her leader who has either been killed or held captive in a secret cell by the Army. This IPOB threat is contained in a published interview with Newsmen on Saturday 3rd March 2018, as granted by the IPOB Media/Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful.

The Indigenous People of Biafra made it explicitly clear that in no distant time, the demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be directly made to the Nigerian Army who brazenly and murderously invaded with all classes of lethal weapons, the residence of the leader of the IPOB, on the firm instruction of the Nigerian government before a court of competent jurisdiction. It must be noted here that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, is perhaps gradually, carefully and very strategically weighing all available options outside the shores of Africa to ensure that justice is clinically delivered and enforced.

It could be recalled that Justice Binta Nyako whose court is presently handling a case bordering on treasonable felony preferred against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and three (3) other IPOB activists by the Nigerian government, was later transmuted into extra-judicial trespass by the accused against the government. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu actually was on court bail, when the Nigerian Army murderously invaded his residence and this report was duly submitted to the Chief Judge (Binta Nyako) which she strongly vilified. She opposed summoning the Nigerian Army for questioning according to judicial procedures, to really ascertain who invaded Kanu's home on assassination plot. Eversince then, Nnamdi Kanu's whereabout is still a mirage. Justice Binta Nyako, in the bid to service the interest of his Fulani kinsman, Muhammadu Buhari and that of the cabals in the Government House, kept twisting indisputable facts, even with attached legitimate exhibits duly tendered in the court by the team of defense lawyers led by Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

With the report of the Amnesty International which confirming that the Nigerian Army massacred at least 12 people when it invaded the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the14th of September 2017, the world should then note that the denial of the Army about either killing or abducting him has been quashed. Whether the Army actually killed Nnamdi Kanu in the vampiric process of his residential invasion or abducted him to an unknown location, the fact remains that no other person or institution can explain what really transpired besides the Nigerian Army. It must be stated here that 20th of March 2018, has been scheduled by Justice Binta Nyako for all the sureties of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to appear before her, to explain why the person they stood surety for, could no longer be produced in court.

This reversed hearing on the associated matter of disappearance is a shameless display of judicial murder and gross incompetence. Biased Justice Binta Nyako had earlier ruled in this case that the Nigerian Army does have Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in custody which was contained in the motion filed by the erudite and courageous legal luminary of Shalum Ben-Madu (Jewish religious leader), Attorney Alloy Ejimakor. In his submission, he argued that the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu be set aside until issues surrounding his disappearance, following the Army's invasion of his home, are satisfactorily resolved. This motion filed by Barrister Alloy Ejimakor which can never be jettisoned, informed my reason of pointedly bringing to the notice of this compromised and grossly incompetent Justice  Binta Nyako that where her power ends as the Presiding Judge, begins the right and power of a defense lawyer. She should therefore not even consider that she has the monopoly of judicial authority.

It is when the case concerning the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu resumes on 20th of March 2018, that Justice Binta Nyako and the Nigerian Army will fully come to terms with the legal brickwalls awaiting them. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, in just few days away, will be unavoidably heading to an International Court should Binta Nyako continues to play partisan politics with the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The last report of the Amnesty International has totally rubbished all the plans the Nigerian compromised media had to aid the Nigerian Army in it's denial of ever invading the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.  It is either Nigeria Judiciary begins to live up to it's billing or the IPOB most definitely, heads to an International Court with the Nigerian Army to prove their cases.

The battle line has very distinctly been drawn and there is no going back!

  1. I am fully in support of the stance of the author. BUT I repeat yet again that the "family writers" should stop presenting their views in poor English.
