Justice Nyako Is Biased, Nnamdi Kanu Won’t Get Fair Trial In Her Court – Deji Adeyanju

Published

on

The convener of Concerned Nigerian movement, Deji Adeyanju, has charged Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court to hands off the case of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Adeyanju in a chat with Daily Post said the husband of justice Nyako hails from the Fulani tribe, hence the reason for the judge to step down from Kanu’s trial.

He further revealed that the husband of the judge has represented and hosted many Fulani meetings and conferences within and outside Nigeria.

Adeyanju said this will make it hard to believe that Kanu will get justice in court.

The human rights activist disclosed this while condemning the ruling of Justice Nyako, which declined Kanu’s application to transfer him from the custody of the Department of State Services to the Correctional Centre in Kuje.

Justice Nyako in her ruling had cited security reasons for rejection of the application.

He said, “As I said earlier, Kanu may not get justice from Justice Binta Nyako because her husband is a prominent Fulani in this country. He has severally hosted several Fulani meetings both in Nigeria and the subregion in his home in Adamawa.

“So there is bound to be that fiat because we all know that Kanu is against the Fulanis in this country; If I were to be Nyako, I would recuse myself from the trial, knowing fully that people may misconstrue that she may not be just, just like I am now of the opinion that she may not be fair and just in the trial.

“Denying him access to Kuje, knowing fully that they kidnapped him in Kenya in such a manner, points to one fact that he may not actually get justice in her court. Look at what the Supreme Court said in the trial of MKO Abiola vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria, that ‘once the average citizen goes home thinking that the judge is unfair, at that point, the judge recuse him/herself from the trial.’ This is totally how I feel on Justice Nyako’s ruling.

“Naturally, that application should have been granted. If somebody says ‘I don’t feel safe in DSS custody,’ why would you still keep him there?”

Adeyanju suggested that the Federal Government is trying to delay the trial of the IPOB leader, thereby, keeping him in custody perpetually.

He said the ruling is a sign that the federal government is colliding with the court against Kanu are right.

Adeyanju said, “Trial should be about the ability of the accused person to defend himself, and the constitution has said the court should provide him the ability, facility, and time to defend himself.

“So, if he is not mentally stable in DSS custody, how then can he defend himself. It’s not as if he would escape justice, so if you remand him in Kuje; he would have the time and facility to prepare for trial, and that is the essence of trial.

“The essence of trial is not to witch-hunt or victimize the defendant but to ensure justice for the state, defendant, and victim. So, if there is no justice for the defendant; then we can’t say we have been just and fair.

“This must go beyond the fact that they want to prosecute Nnamdi Kanu, because it’s now looking as if they are doing everything possible to keep him

“Remember the last adjourned date, they refused to produce him in court. Knowing them by their modus operandi, they just want to delay the trial and keep him in custody perpetually. If they take him to a Correctional facility, they would always present him for trial.

“Those suspecting a collusion between the court, DSS, and the government may be right because there is no locus whatsoever to have denied this application.”

Gumi Warns Against Tagging Bandits As Terrorists

Published

on

Controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, on Sunday warned against declaring bandits as terrorists, adding that the decision will come with a prize.

This is coming after lawmakers in the National Assembly charged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare bandits as terrorists following attacks in the Northern part of the country.

Gumi in a post shared on his Facebook handle noted that the actions of bandits in the Northwest which has seen innocent people murdered are tantamount to terrorism.

He, however, said the moment bandits are declared terrorists, the direct foreign Jihadist movements will set in force, and many unemployed youths may find it palatable and attractive.

Gumi added that nothing stops kinetic actions from going on without the controversy of semantics.

The Islamic cleric charged an Igbo cleric to reach out to members of the Indigenous People of Biafra and talk sense to them, while a pastor in the Southwest does the same to bring peace to the country at large.

Gumi in a post titled, “Declaring Bandits as Terrorists will come with a prize!” wrote, “Nobody doubts that sentimentalism today overrides sensibility in our polity. For the sake of posterity, some people will have to speak out.

“The acts the bandits are committing now in North West have gradually over time become tantamount to terrorism because wherever innocent people are fatal victims it’s pure terrorism. Yet, innocence these days is relative. We agreed if their children and women are also killed, they are guilty by association or collateral damage, so also the bandits may think the same way. It’s right for vigilantes to lynch Fulani herdsmen or anyone that looks like them by profiling but wrong for the herdsmen to ransack villages in retribution. They are pushed to believe it is an existential war and in war, ethics are thrown to the winds.

“Yet again, the only helpful part that is against bandits is that no other than them are attracted to join them in the North West because of its ethnic tinge and coloration. However, the moment they are termed terrorist – Islamic for that matter, the direct foreign Jihadist movements will set in in force. And many teaming unemployed youths may find it palatable and attractive. Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ plus AK47 against a ‘secular’ immoral society where impunity reigns are the magnet for extremists and downtrodden – the majority of our youth. Already these deadly terrorist groups are fighting for the soul of these bandits. This will give criminality a spiritual cover and remove the stigma of discrediting them with such crimes since now they are fighting a ‘Jihad’ as they will claim. In such a situation, does the larger society — as it is — has the moral high ground to fight back? This is the most probable consequence, the price of which is not worth it. Nothing stops the kinetic actions from going on without the controversy of semantics.

“North East is already and is still devastated by this madness for over 12 years. If we allow terror to set in into these raw, naïve, and unexposed bandits, North West will be in ruins sooner than later. Already IPOB is destroying South East, and Igboho has set the ball of confusion rolling in South West. For those who want to destroy the North West, it’s a good recipe. Turn bandits into religious zealots. Tell me, what then remains of Nigeria?

“I have started to get these raw bandits out of their misadventure but unfortunately, I have few helpers and a mountain of antagonists. The psychology in fighting natives is to induce a motive for their struggle if they don’t have one already, a motive that is manageable, and it is so managed. Unfortunately, reactions to threats in our nation are always slow and incoherent.

“I hope another Igbo cleric goes into the IPOB militants likewise and talk sense into them, and another Pastor of Oduduwa land talks against the Igboho secessionist tribal movement by way of sensitizing people to the values of a cohesive nationalism that will guarantee freedom, equality, and justice for all. Religious forces can permeate hardened hearts where secular forces cannot.

“Regrettably, people just sit down in the comfort of their rooms or parlors and make useless passing comments that only add fuel to the inferno of ethnic jingoism and bigotry. In the 21st century, Nigeria is hijacked by semi-illiterates and half-baked tribal heroes that have nothing to offer besides promoting tribal xenophobia. Nigeria has over 250 ethnic groups. It’s not possible to divide such a nation into tribal enclaves. Nigeria is multi-religious, even within the same religion or sect, there is no harmony and understanding that can build a prosperous, unified nation where tranquillity and development will flourish. We are tired of these bogus destructive fruitless slogans!

“Nigerians are in a daydream so long they act by Nerval impulses not by the dictates of their cerebral cortex. May Allah protect us all. Amin.”

How Malami Will Be Remembered After Labelling Sunday Igboho Terrorist – Afenifere

Published

on

The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, says one of the individuals who will feature prominently whenever the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is being appraised is the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami SAN.

It however pointed out that Malami would not be remembered for exemplary positive contributions to the nation and to humanity but for the unprecedented damage, he caused the administration he served to commit.

Bennievibez reports that Afenifere stated this while faulting Malami’s attempt to label Sunday Adeyemo (alias Igboho) a terrorist saying it “was the height of an attempt to nail Adeyemo at all cost even without justification.’’

The AGF had on Friday tagged the activities of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, who is currently in Benin Republic prison as acts of terrorism. He disclosed that a 24-member committee set up by President Buhari and headed by him established a link between Igboho and a Boko Haram sponsor, Surajo Muhammad, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in the United Arab Emirates on charges of financing terrorism.

Afenifere in a statement issued at the weekend by its national publicity secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi, said the attitude of Malami on matters of rights of Nigerians and the need to use the law to edify the society has always called to question his capacity to hold the exalted office as the first law officer of the country.

Malami, according to the statement, “will feature prominently because of what he did – and makes the government he serves to do – while in that office.”

‘’Unfortunately, his prominence would not be for exemplary positive contributions to the nation and to humanity but for the unprecedented damage he caused the administration he served to commit,’’ it said.

Afenifere revealed that to worsen matters for Malami, he could not mention any specific terrorist act carried out by Igboho particularly in regards to the financial transactions he was so excited to roll out.

Nonsensical, Absurd: Ohanaeze Rejects IPOB Sit-At-Home Order Over Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has declined the planned sit-at-home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Ohanaeze in its reaction, not only condemned the sit-at-home order, but described it as a “nonsensical, absurd, and anti-Igbo agenda, for the enemy’s amusement.”

Naija News recalls IPOB had on Saturday vowed to lockdown the Southeast region if the federal government failed to unconditionally release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, from detention by November 4.

In a statement released on Saturday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB said it will honor Kanu with the fresh lockdown, which will be enforced between November 5 and 10, except on Sunday, November 7, to allow for Church service.

But Ohanaeze in a reaction on Sunday through a statement issued by its secretary-general, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro said the IPOB order will only unleash untold hardship on the people of the region.

He added that it is obvious Nnamdi Kanu can only be released by the court, arguing that subjecting the people to such anguish is counter-productive and selfish.

The statement warned residents of the region to reject any ‘overseas’ order seeking to trample upon them.

While urging IPOB to rescind its directive, Ohanaeze observed that it won’t support the sit-at-home and will also withdraw all forms of support for IPOB as the people are ready to ensure nothing stops the free and peaceful conduct of the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November 6.

He said, “Any declaration that unleashes untold hardship, leads to the collapse of commercial and industrial activities, boycott of Anambra elections, and interrupts the academic calendar in the Southeastern states is nonsensical, absurd, and anti-Igbo agenda, for the enemy’s amusement.”

Isiguzoro said it was time “for the Igbo to rise to the occasion and end being trampled with orders from overseas by those without any investments in the South-East”.

“IPOB should discern that there was self-determination struggle in Africa before now. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in jail and never in the history of the movement against Apartheid was starvation, anguish, and catastrophe unleashed on Black South Africans by ANC.

“It is impulsive and reckless to order Ndigbo to observe one-week sit-at-home when it’s obvious that Nnamdi Kanu will not be released without the approval of courts.

“IPOB should revisit and nullify the one-week sit-at-home or they will likely lose the support of the Ndigbo henceforth, Ndigbo must participate in Anambra election and nothing should stop it”.

APC Chieftain Reveals How IPOB Can Secure Kanu’s Release

Published

on

The Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu, has charged the Indigenous People of Biafra to work with the Ohanaeze Ndigbo to seek the release of it leader.

Okechukwu in a chat with newsmen on Sunday in Enugu said the decision will help the South-East pursue its presidential ambition.

He revealed, “IPOB should join Prof. George Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo to kill two birds with one stone.”

The DG of VON said shutting down states in the region would only lead to more loss of lives.

Okechukwu added putting the states on hold would also lead to poverty, underdevelopment, and stagnation of the region’s economy.

He said, “Working with Ohanaeze for a political solution is not cowardice, but pragmatic and the home-bitter truth solution.”

The All Progressives Congress chieftain said even though people of the region support IPOB’s agitation for secession, the Igbo people, however, have passed the road of civil war.

“While shutting down is happening, the Yorubas and others are yearnings to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The pragmatic route is a political solution in collaboration with the Ohaneze, let’s sheath our swords.”

In a related development, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has berated the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, linking Nnamdi Kanu to the South East killings.

Naija News reports that Malami had in a press conference accused Nnamdi Kanu of killing Dr Chike Akinyuli and former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak.

The AGF also accused the Kanu-led IPOB of attacking 164 police stations and killing 175 security operatives across the country, stating that a Presidential Ad-hoc Committee which was inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate activities of the IPOB came up with the figures.

VAT: Gov. Wike Says Rivers Not Fighting FG, Reveals What They Want

Published

on

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has declared that there is no truth in insinuations in certain quarters that the state is fighting the federal government.

Wike spoke against the backdrop of the current face-off between the federal and Rivers State governments on the collection of Value Added Tax (VAT).

Speaking on Sunday in Abuja at an event to mark the 60th birthday of Mr. Ahmed Raji, (SAN), Wike who was represented by the Rivers State Attorney-General, Mr. Zacchaeus Adangor (SAN) explained that what they want to achieve are fiscal federalism and fiscal autonomy.

He added while speaking on the topic “Taxing Powers in a Federal System” that the state and federal governments are co-equals as they both derive their powers from the constitution.

The Governor noted further than what they are asking for is well within the provisions of the law, expressing hope that the courts will do justice to the matter which Bennievibez recalls has already been dragged to the Supreme Court level.

“I have heard a lot of comments being made that we are fighting the Federal Government, there is no desire or any intention of the Rivers government to fight the Federal Government.

“The principle of co-equality is fundamental to a federal arrangement, that principle leads to the principle of autonomy, autonomy leads to fiscal autonomy and fiscal autonomy leads to fiscal federalism and when you put all the principles together, what it means is that each level of government, whether federal or state is co-equal because none derives its life from the other.

“They both derive their life from the constitution because they have co-equality.

“That is the fundamental aspect of fiscal federalism and until we get it, we will continue this journey of talking without result but I think that the court has a role to play, the court can lay this crisis and controversy to rest when it makes a pronouncement,” he submitted.
