100 days after, the Nigerian Supreme courtroom refuses to repair a date for Nnamdi Kanu’s Case
The worldwide household and motion of Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB) below the management of the prophet Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU alerts the general public and the worldwide neighborhood on the deliberate obstruction of justice by the Supreme Court docket of Nigeria within the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who’s illegally detained in DSS solitary confinement.
The world ought to recall that the Justices of Abuja Attraction Court docket on October 13, 2022, unanimously discharged and acquitted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of all fees introduced in opposition to him by the Federal Authorities of Nigeria. The identical Court docket barred Nigeria’s authorities from prosecuting him in any Nigerian Court docket. Equally, Umuahi Excessive Court docket ordered the Federal Authorities of Nigeria to return Mazi Nnamdi KANU to Kenya, the place he was kidnapped, tortured, and terribly renditioned to Nigeria. Nonetheless, the lawless Federal Authorities of Nigeria refused to obey their very own courtroom orders. As an alternative, they erroneously went to the Supreme Court docket to impede justice by submitting an enchantment to their very own decrease courtroom’s ruling.
One would have anticipated the Supreme Court docket of Nigeria, being a Constitutional Court docket to throw out such faulty enchantment by the lawless Federal Authorities of Nigeria for his or her disobedience to the Attraction Court docket Orders or expedite motion on the case bordering on Worldwide crime and Human Proper abuse. As an alternative, they intentionally determined to not repair a date to listen to the enchantment earlier than them. It has been over 100 days since their federal authorities appealed the judgment of their Appellant Court docket, which discharged and acquitted Mazi Nnamdi KANU, but the Supreme Court docket has not fastened a date for the listening to.
IPOB and Biafrans understand the Supreme Court docket Justices as colluding with the Federal Authorities to delay and deny Mazi Nnamdi KANU justice. Mazi Nnamdi KANU did not commit any crime prosecutable in Nigeria or anyplace internationally, but he has been held in solitary confinement by the DSS for over 18 months. The Nigeria Authorities, who’s in violation of worldwide legislation of extradition and disobedience of courtroom orders, is having fun with immunity as a result of Supreme Court docket Justices have determined to commerce justice for obedience to the chief arm of the federal government.
If Supreme Court docket Judges can expedite actions on the instances involving Nigeria polititcians, what stops them from expediting motion on the extraordinary rendition and human proper abuse of Mazi Nnamdi KANU who’s at present very sick? Are the Supreme Court docket Justices biased, or are they selling ethnic bigotry in meting out justice? Do the boys on the bench need the world to imagine that they’re the chief department of Nigeria authorities’s stooges?
The world is watching the Supreme Court docket of Nigeria to both legalize and institutionalize extraordinary renditions or uphold worldwide legal guidelines. The lads of the bench have an ethical responsibility to uphold the structure of Nigeria which are in step with worldwide legal guidelines and, on the identical time, defend human rights of all individuals.
The deteriorating well being situation of Mazi Nnamdi KANU is greater than sufficient proof for the Supreme Court docket of Nigeria to expedite motion on his case if certainly they aren’t bullied or intimidated by the Govt department of the Nigeria authorities to face down on this case. It’s mentioned that justice delayed is a justice denied. We in IPOB suppose that the Supreme Court docket Justices are aiding and abetting the Federal Authorities of Nigeria in torturing and denying Mazi Nnamdi KANU justice by refusing to repair a date to listen to the enchantment earlier than them. If anything that’s extra extreme occurs to Mazi Nnamdi KANU in DSS solitary confinement, the Supreme Court docket Justices and the Federal Authorities of Nigeria needs to be held accountable
Mazi Nnamdi KANU’S case will take a look at the boldness and independence of the Supreme Court docket of Nigeria as stipulated of their Structure. The world is ready for the Supreme Court docket to show their independence.
