The Supreme Court must be upright before a government exhausted of all tactics and now employs criminal blackmails against IPOB And Nnamdi Kanu.
After what could be safely called a consciously staged “delay tactics” by the Federal government, and the seeming compliancy by the authorities at the Supreme Court, the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been slated to be heard on the 5th of October 2023. It is imperative to recall, that on 13th October 2022, the appellate court ruled in favour of Kanu, ordering his discharge and acquittal and barred his further trial in any Nigerian court.
Although the Federal government managed to obtain a Stay-Of-Execution order immediately after, but has refused to prosecute its case at the highest court. Rather, the government chose to intensifying her effort to override the judgement of the Appeal Court by deploying/using agent provocateurs in the Southeast to source up incriminating evidence to coerce the judges to cave to their nefarious demands.
Upon the Kidnap and Extraordinary Rendition of Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria back in 2021, the Federal Government had continuously sought through several means to destroy the IPOB movement so as to enable them “nail” the leader without any resistance.
First, Provocateurs were planted to create strife, capitalize on them and implode the movement internally.
Secondly, Pressure was mounted to force the IPOB leadership to handover the Command of the Eastern Security Network to controllable figures namely. Southeast Politicians and Elites.
Thirdly, Violent Provocations were maximized against innocent IPOB members, to force the IPOB leadership into declaring arms struggle, thereby justifying the State’s illegal belligerent overtures against the IPOB leader and the people. At some points, sinister plots were alleged to have been hatched to rendition or assassinate members of the defiant IPOB leadership who predominantly are resident in the diaspora. But all these proved ineffective.
Hence, the state intensified the use of agent provocateurs and criminal elements to unleash mayhem in the South East, aimed at forcing the people, global state actors to renounce the IPOB movement. But this is not working either.
For Instance, the Institute of Peace in their 2022 Global terrorism Index had susceptibly included IPOB in the terrorism organization list, but was immediately forced to retract, as the IPOB leadership threatened to aggressively pursue legal redress in their own court in Australia and Europe.
On the other hand, Owing to the voracious campaign of IPOB in denying involvement or relation with these criminal elements in the South East, and exposing it as the State-backed Covert operation to blackmail the movement, the people of the Southeast (including the Political Elites) have consciously separated the movement from the criminal elements who are covertly sponsored by the Nigerian Secret services (DSS), and are calling on the government to release Nnamdi Kanu in line with the pronouncement of the appeal Court, so as to stop those committing crimes in his name, while pretentiously claiming to be working for him.
These facts are there. And the judges at the Supreme Court are also living in the country. Hence, should they decide to oblige the state against the rule of law and justice based on the false and frivolous evidences presented by the government, then they decided to do so, not ignorantly, but willingly. And that would invariably justify whatever actions the IPOB movement would revert to in order to rescue her Leader from Captivity both under the Nigerian and International law.
The reason Russia is prosecuting what she calls “Special Military Operation” in Ukraine today, is as a result of colossal failure of the successive Ukrainian governments and their Western backers to implement agreements initial aimed at reaching detente. Hence, it is in the interest of the Nigerian statehood itself, that the Supreme Court protects the sanctity of the judiciary and uphold justice in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, while the State lasts.
