The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has commended the Court judgment giving in favour of Nnamdi Kanu and describe it as re-assuring.

The high court in Abia state awarded N1 billion against the Federal Government of Nigeria over the invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s country home

The President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike stated that the decision of the court showed that there was still hope in Nigeria.

He also believes that the court verdict came at a time when many people were no longer giving a chance to the judiciary.

“This judgement brings a sense of hope to all Nigerians. It is highly re-assuring and commendable.

“It shows that we still have courageous members of the bench in Nigeria who are ready to follow the law and apply it without pandering to the left or to the right.

“We have always said that the military invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home was uncalled for since his court case was upcoming before that incident.

“Our advice to the Government is to seek a political solution as suggested by the judge because that is the only way out and if the government is sincere to restore peace, it should not shy away from it,” Okwu stated.

He, however, appealed to the members of the IPOB to maintain peace and follow the rule of law in their search for justice.

“We have all seen that justice can still come by following legitimate means,” he said
