The leadership and family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, wish to raise alarm once again over the continuous and flagrant abuse of judicial process through incessant adjournments of cases involving IPOB by Binta Nyako and other judges in Nigeria. IPOB intelligence unit have uncovered plans by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court 3 Abuja, Attorney General of the Federation through DSS lawyer Mr S. Labaran who incidentally doubles as the government prosecutor, about their intentions to adjourn the upcoming case between IPOB and Nigeria government on 20th of February 2018 to yet another unspecified date.
With this ongoing plan to adjourn this case yet again, it goes to confirm that Nigerian government and her DSS agents have no material evidence or witness to prove their case of bogus treasonable felony allegations and charges against IPOB. Aso Rock and their secret police DSS, are using protracted adjournments as a tool to punish those they feel are enemies of their government. A legitimately held view of the right to self determination as espoused by IPOB, in the eyes of the Nigerian judiciary, is a crime worthy of indefinite detention at the pleasure of the Nigerian president, in a supposed democracy that practice the rule of law.
It must be noted that there is existing court order requiring DSS to release Mr. Bright Chimezie Ishinwa since June 2017, which Lawal Daura the Director General of DSS has continued to disobeyed till date, without any cogent reason or argument. The serial flagrant disobedience of this particular court order and many more by DSS is proof that today’s Nigerian judiciary is firmly in the hands of DSS and other government agencies. They are anything but independent. Humanity must take note of the fact that Nigerian judiciary is not independent and as a result of which thousands of innocent citizens that hold contrary political opinion to this Buhari regime are languishing in detention across Nigeria for no legal reason. In Nigeria today, unless you are a certified friend of this APC government, you can never get justice from the courts.
