 Nnamdi Kanu Court Case in ECOWAS

NNEWI—The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB,
yesterday said it is taking the continued detention
without trial of its leader and Director of Radio
Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu to the Economic
Community of West African States, ECOWAS,
court to seek justice, since the Nigeria judiciary
cannot deliver good judgment in the matter
concerning his illegal detention. It also said that “the trial Judge, Mr John Tsoho
did a tactical withdrawal from the case because
he knew that the Federal Government of Nigeria
has a bad case, and urged the Nigerian
government to read the handwriting on the wall
and do the honourable thing by releasing Mr Kanu
and withdrawing the charges against him.”
IPOB in a statement signed by its Media and
Publicity Secretary, Mr. Emma Powerful alleged
that “the withdrawal of the trial Judge, Justice
John Tsoho is also another application of delay
tactics to pave way for the continued detention of
Mr. Kanu and not only because he wanted to
save his face from shame”, adding that “the judge
is still working with the Federal Government to
convict Mr. Kanu by all means”. IPOB’s statement read: “We IPOB and Directorate
of State, DOS, IPOB, have concluded plans to take
the continued illegal detention of our leader and
Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu to the
Economic Community of West African States,
ECOWAS, court to seek justice for him since the
courts in Nigeria have decided not to give him
justice, in order to please their masters who have
written the scripts the courts are playing.
“We want to tell the world that the withdrawal of
the trial Judge, Mr. John Tsoho from the case is
another way of continuing his detention and not
only to save his name from the embarrassment
he has caused himself with his role in the case.
We know that he is still working with the Federal
Government and Department of State Services,
DSS, to convict Mr. Kanu either by hook or by
Monarch urges agitators to slow down
Meantime, the traditional ruler of Yokoye kingdom
in Ezeagu local government area, HRH
Christopher Chukwuemeka has urged the Biafran
agitators to consider other diplomatic options
before considering breaking away.
HRH Chukwuemeka told Vanguard that he was
with the late Odumegwu Ojukwu till the war ended
after which they lost the war and he travelled to
the U.K to further his studies.
“I was in Nigerian army in 1960. I was a Nigerian
before a Biafran. The Biafran issue should have
been debated first. The mistakes of the past
should not be repeated. Biafra came as a result
of the hostility against the Igbo and southerners
when people were being killed in the North.”
