Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu sends message to Senator Abaribe, blasts Justice Nyako


Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Tuesday, said that he would remain grateful to all his sureties.

Speaking via a broadcast on Biafra Radio, he noted that they stood by him in his moment of despair.

Recall that the Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District, Enyinnaya Abaribe, and other sureties bailed Kanu with a whooping sum of N100million naira each.

However, following report of the alleged invasion of his house by the Nigerian Army, Kanu resurfaced in Israel from where he went to the UK.

“I remain eternally grateful to my sureties for standing by me all through my travails, trials and tribulations.

“It smacks of judicial persecution for Justice Binta Nyako handling my case to claim that my sureties had withdrawn their surety.

“Justice Binta Nyako’s bench warrant against me makes the judiciary complicit in the persecution of innocent people and IPOB since mid-2015.

“Where a case is for hearing of motion, the trial judge must hear the motion and adjourn for any other process. On no account should he hear a motion and hear the merits of the matter, not to talk about delivering judgment. He may consider doing that in the very rare circumstance of consent by parties.

“When a matter has been adjourned for a particular purpose, it is my view that the business of the court on the day the matter is adjourned is the purpose for which it was adjourned.

“It is expected that parties have come prepared for that purpose for which the matter was adjourned. If it is expedient to change the purpose, it cannot be done by the court suo motu (on its own) as the parties must agree.”
