IPOB: The Plight Of Obi-dients And The Need To Always Stand For Justice

IPOB: The Plight Of Obi-dients And The Need To Always Stand For Justice

The long awaited Presidential Tribunal Judgement has come and gone, leaving every one that hoped on the judiciary, especially the Obi-dients, awed. In all, the message these whole outcome has for everyone is that while justice is being cruelly strangulated in Nigeria, one should never side it, irrespective of whom is suffering from that callous act at any moment. It is a clear warning that justice is not a Notherner or Southerner, and not a Christian or Muslim. 

Did you remember when Appeal Court discharged and acquitted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB)? Many Obi-dients became furious and wished Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was never released till the Nigerian election is over. 

Then you would ask, "what was their reason for such nasty wish for the IPOB leader. Of course nothing meaningful. Most of them simply thought that Tinubu wanted to use Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a bait to scuttle the chances of Peter Obi winning the election. Many of them accused Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of being an obstacle to the mandate of Obi. They claimed that if Mazi Nnamdi Kanu were released, he would divide the teaming masses that were rooting and ready to vote for Obi in Southeast and all other regions densely populated with Igbos. So, they argued that such would consequently  deflate the chances of Obi winning the presidential election, coupled with the skepticisms surrounding the position of IPOB worldwide during that period.

Unfortunately, it did not occur to these set of Obi-dients that Justice is the fundamental victim here.

At the victory and subsequent pronouncement of the panel led by Justice Tsammani, an unprecedented joy, jubilation enveloped the whole of southeast except some set of people who immediately began to write scandalous views about the release of the IPOB leader. They wished for justice to be denied to Nnamdi Kanu. They wanted him still remain locked up in that dungeon until the election is over. 

By so doing, these Obi-dients prayed, wished and asked for a travesty of justice to one innocent man, thus were happy when the federal government used same appeal court to stay the judgement of same appeal court that released Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

All these were just for their selfish political ambitions during the selection process called election, because they were with high hopes that Peter Obi was a sure mandate. They never looked inside the loopholes created by INEC, instead became antagonistic to a man who have committed no sin.

Fast-forward to this day, same Obi-dients are seeking justice from same court that discharged Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and they wished he should never had gotten justice from that appellate court. The same court headed by same justice Tsammani who led the panel for counter justices for Nnamdi Kanu is whom these Obi-dients hoped to deliver justice to them, forgetting how they helped and encouraged the trample of Justice in Kanu's case. What an irony of life?

Have you now spotted their vile hypocrisy and conspiracy?

These people forgot that "injustice to one is a trait to justice to all. They forgot that one evil they failed to condemn, curtail will spread to their doorsteps. Today, I hope they havs realized that they were wrong all the while, pointing accusing fingers at an innocent yet illegally incarcerated Man.

Now, we watch how they are denied justice, a lesson to them that karma is real.

As their eyes were on the judiciary, they failed to recount their false accusations on a man who mean no harm to them. And till date, they have not apologized while at the same time seeking justice. Something they do not want another to get? Quite Laughable and unfortunate. 

At the end, Nigeria has shown the Obi-dients why she remains irredeemable, and further vindicates Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.

IPOB is not pleased to see the manipulation on justice to anyone, even to their enemies. This is keyly what people do not understand. It is equally what the Obi-dients should understand in their current disappointed state, and learn to always stand for justice, irrespective of whom she is for.
