The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused the Federal Government of hiding behind adjournment to abandon the case of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, lamented that the Federal Government has literally abandoned its appeal against Kanu because they have no case against him.
He wondered why the government fears pursuing Kanu’s case to a logical conclusion.
A statement by Powerful reads partly: “IPOB movement ably led Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to reiterate once again over what the Federal Government of Nigeria and Supreme Court of Nigeria are doing towards the illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody in Abuja.
“It is obvious that the Federal Government of Nigeria has literally abandoned their appeal against our Supreme Leader at the Supreme Court of Nigeria because they have no case against an honest man devoted to the emancipation of the oppressed and down-trodden in our society.
“This being the biggest court case in the history of Nigeria, it is the duty of the government to insist on diligent prosecution of the case rather than running away from their own Court. It is laughable that the person being prosecuted by the Federal Government is the person asking them to come to court. Is this not bizarre?
“What is it that Federal Government is afraid of in pursuing a case they themselves brought at the Supreme Court against Kanu? We would like to know, since the Federal Government and the Judiciary are reluctant to hear this matter, is there any higher authority available to our leader to Appeal to since it is not likely that the Supreme Court of Nigeria will ever hear this matter.”
