Kanu Speaks on Nigerian Judiciary and Constitution

IPOB USA

In this address Mazi Nnamdi Kanu explains, using references in the Nigerian constitution, how in fundamental ways his trial has not proceeded according to Nigerian law. He also reveals that agitating for self-determination is not a crime according to Nigerian law.

Treasonable felony is defined in Chapter 6 Section 41 of the Nigerian Criminal Code as:

Any person who forms an intention to effect any of the following purposes, that is to say-

 (a)            to remove during his term of office otherwise than by constitutional means the President as Head of State of the Federation and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces thereof; or

(b)            to likewise remove during his term of office the Governor of a State; or

(c)            to levy war against Nigeria in order by force or constraint to compel the President to change his measures or counsels, or in order to put any force or constraint upon, or in order to intimidate or overawe any House of the National Assembly or any other Legislature or legislative authority; or

(d)            to instigate any foreigner to make any armed invasion of Nigeria or of any of the territories thereof; and manifests such intention by an overt act, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life.

Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB have openly discussed Buhari’s lack of qualification but have not attempted to forcefully remove him. The same applies to Nigeria’s governors in Biafraland whose removal Kanu advocated according to the electoral process. This eliminates definitions (a) and (b). IPOB’s nonviolent campaigning for Biafra Restoration eliminates (c) and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never instigated foreigners to invade Nigeria, which eliminates (d).

Agitating for self determination is not listed as a definition of treasonable felony. Ironically Nigerian Law recognizes the rights of all peoples to self determination. Chapter A9 Article 20 of the laws of the Federation of Nigeria says:

  1. All peoples shall have right to existence. They shall have the unquestionable and inalienable right to self-determination. They shall freely determine their political status and shall pursue their economic and social development according to the policy they have freely chosen.

  2. Colonized or oppressed people shall have the right to free themselves from the bonds of domination by resorting to any means recognized by the international community.

  3. All peoples shall have the right to the assistance of the States Parties to the present Charter in their liberation struggle against foreign domination, be it political, economic or cultural.

Self determination is recognized by even Nigerian Law.

Binta Nyako is Culpable for DSS Targeting IPOB members

IPOB USA

There are emerging apparent revelations concerning the inhumane and degrading treatments meted on Biafrans detained under the custody of the Nigeria Department of Security Services (DSS). These heartbreaking revelations emanated on the resumption of the ongoing trials of the family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), namely: Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Mmadubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie Ishinwa. Their trials at Justice Binta Nyako's presided Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria, kicked off on Tuesday 26th March 2019.

Recall that there exists treasonable felony charges preferred against the above mentioned Biafran citizens by the Nigerian government, principally based on their rightful and peaceful agitation for  the independence of the territories known as Biafra, within the West African sub-region, that has existed well over centuries before the advent of colonialism. Their uncompromising agitations for Biafra independence attracted their illegal arrests and prolonged dehumanizing incarcerations by the Nigerian security police known as Department of Security Services (DSS), on trumped up charges.

As Chidiebere Onwudiwe (1st defendant) was testifying during his trial in the court, he emphatically revealed how he was severely abused and tortured by the officers of the DSS. He stated that he was electrocuted on his laps in their mad bid to forcefully have him sign a doctored document designed to implicate him, few days after his arrest. Mazi Onwudiwe clearly stated that the statement presented before the court against him, was actually signed by him but under duress at a gun point. He was under the threat of being killed by the DSS officials if he resisted compliance. He went on to tell the court how he was completely denied access to his lawyers, relatives, IPOB family members, food and water for over a month. The only available alternative left for survival was the water he drank from wall-fixed tap in the tiny cell he was confined, under chains.

It is important therefore to state here that the body language of the presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako in particular and Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) in general, is breeding human right abuses, lawlessness and blunt rascality of the Nigerian security agencies which consists of the Department of Security Services (DSS), Army and Police, against the family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). It is on this premise that it becomes needful that Justice Binta Nyako, should redeem her already battered judicial career by firmly standing against acts of lawlessness being exhibited by the DSS in handling IPOB members yet in detention. In case she is feigning ignorance of the law, it is absurd to even mention that officials of the DSS, shamelessly doctored a written document which the accused was forced at a gun point, to sign.

Now that the trial has earnestly commenced, it is time to really administer justice to whom it is totally due. Regarding the officials of the Department of Security Services (DSS), Justice Binta Nyako must to know that, she will unavoidably descend into the valley of infamy should she fail to carry out thorough and unbiased investigation into the human right abuses meted on Mazi Chidiebere Onwudiwe and his other three co-defendants who are equally standing trial in her court. The bizarre degrading treatments carried out against them by the Nigerian Security Operatives before their eventual forceful transfer to Kuje prison after their arrests, must never ever be treated with levity.
