How can Nigeria through Justice Binta Nyako, lock up people for over two years without any evidence whilst the army is busy killing and looking for evidence to justify the charges. Is it not the case that in Common Law, as practiced in Nigeria, you obtain credible evidence before you charge a suspect to court? After reading this brief synopsis of the phantom treasonable felony trial, the world will understand why the Nigerian government were desperate to link IPOB to the purported importation of pump action guns from Turkey.

For two years Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Chidiebere Onwudiwe who are all facing treasonable felony charge with Nnamdi Kanu were denied bail because according to Buhari's government, the charge of treasonable felony is not ordinarily bailable- whatever that means. They have been held illegally, according to legal rules and procedures, in detention in Northern Nigeria, on a charge that the state of Nigeria is yet to place any evidence before the courts. This is not only criminal, it is sheer evil. As ridiculous as this may sound, it is true.

Going by the ruling of Justice Binta Nyako, attached below and highlighted in yellow ink, she made it clear in simple English that there is no material evidence placed before her court to justify the sustenance of the frivolous treasonable felony charge. Instead she gave the prosecution time to produce a tape and bring witnesses. Where on earth have you heard or seen such a thing before. You hold somebody in custody on a bogus charge, you then give the government time to go and fish for evidence. Yes, that was exactly what Buhari's government pressured Justice Binta Nyako to do. Read it for yourself below.

In this bizarre injudicious ruling, Justice Binta Nyako acknowledged and wrote it down in her ruling that the only evidence Buhari's government was relying on (alleged tape recording) and witnesses will be tendered at a later date. What this means is that there is till date no evidence to back up treasonable felony charge before Binta Nyako court but she miraculously decided to detain innocent people without any evidence because Buhari her fellow Fulani Muslim Northerner and ruler of Nigeria wants her to use the courts to effect what amounts to extra judicial detention of innocent Biafrans.


In any court of law in any civilised part of the world, Binta Nyako will be de-robed and sent to jail for perverting the course of justice. You don't lock up innocent people asking for referendum and throw away the keys because the government don't like what they are saying. You detain people based on the strength of the evidence against them not because of their ethnicity and unsubstantiated trumped up charges. Unfortunately in Nigeria, when Buhari and his APC party says a person should be locked up, that person is locked up even without evidence.

Here you have it in black and white, in the words and ruling of Binta Nyako that the much taunted treasonable felony charge against Kanu and others have no accompanying evidence or witnesses before any court of law; and this is after 2 whole years. The lawyers should do the needful tomorrow and ask for the charge of treasonable felony to be thrown out. All detainees should be granted unconditional release because it's grave injustice to hold somebody without evidence or trial for 2 years.

The truth is that this government of Buhari is not prepared for any treasonable felony trial because they have no evidence as Justice Nyako said in her ruling. That is why they use adjournment after adjournment to frustrate the case and when Kanu secured bail, they went to his house to kill him before the next court date. If Nigeria had any case they are confident of winning in a court of law, they would have allowed Kanu to appear in court.

 We must all demand for the unconditional release of Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and others. Say no to judicial thuggery.

BIAFRA: COURT CASE: NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT MUST PROVIDE NNAMDI KANU – BIAFRA WRITERS TALKS TOUGH












October 17, 2017

As we make headway to the Federal High Court, Abuja, Nigerian government MUST provide Nnamdi Kanu [leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra].

Bear in mind that on April 25, 2017, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail by the Court of competent jurisdiction.

The order was made by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja. Conversely, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's "frivolous" bail was breached as the Nigerian army raided his homestead (on September 14, 2017), and made away with him.

Following the dreadful foray into the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, (by the Nigerian army), we have not heard of his whereabouts. Hence, we are unsure whether or not he is alive. However, the Nigerian government has this question to answer: WHERE IS NNAMDI KANU?

Biafra: Between Lies and Denials Nigeria Defence Minister Confirms Army Raid at Kanu's Home


 IPOB Press Statement

October 16, 2017

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide under the command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to draw the attention of Nigerians and the entire world to the statement made by the Nigerian Defence Minister General Mansur Dan Ali Rtd on a TV program called Question Time which aired repeatedly on Channels Television over the weekend. During the course of the interview, Mansur Dan Ali confirmed on videotape that Nigerian Army went in search of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his home, having previously denied the involvement of the army in his abduction and disappearance since the invasion of the 14th September 2017.

The bare-faced lies of the Nigerian Defence Minister General Mansur Dan Ali and that of the Buhari regime against our leader and organization is beginning to unravel before the eyes of the world. By admitting publicly that soldiers were sent to Isiama Afaraukwu IBEKU to look for our leader without any order or warrant from a court of law confirms the contempt in which Nigerian government holds the rule of law and their judicial process. It is, therefore, incumbent upon civilized nations of the world and organizations alike to ask the APC led Nigerian government why they decided to send armed soldiers to invade Kanu's residence.

Another question that must be asked is why would the government deny this obvious fact when there is incontrovertible proof based on available CCTV evidence that Nigerian soldiers undertook this outrageously murderous raid in a peaceful village that resulted in the disappearance and presumed death of our leader. In the immortal words of Mansur Dan Ali the army "went to look for him but he wasn't there". This means that the army deliberately "went" and stormed his home.

READ ALSO: Biafra: As Kanu goes to Court on Tuesday, will the judge wield the weight of law of contempt against the Federal government?

The words to note here is that the army went to look for Kanu, contrary to the lies emanating from the government that Operation Python Dance II was not targeted against IPOB. Since by the admission of the Defence Minister our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was not there during the invasion of his residence, why deny that no invasion took place. This culture of denial, lies and subsequent admission makes it impossible for any neutral observer to believe any word coming out of the mouth of any official of the Buhari regime regarding the issue of IPOB.

It is also on record that the Nigerian government, Army, and Defence Headquarters Abuja initially denied ever coming near or invading Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's house in Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia Abia State that resulted in the cold-blooded murder of  28 people including that of his two cousins. With these lies upon lies coming from the government over this military invasion, it is therefore reasonably expected to conclude that the army is also lying about not having our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in their custody. Is the world waiting for Biafrans to pick up arms to demand the release of the body of their leader before they know IPOB is serious about ascertaining what the Nigerian government did with him?

We are aware that Nigerian government and her security operatives especially the army and police cannot continue reducing or making a fool of themselves in the face of the whole world concerning the issue of IPOB and quest for Biafra freedom. The struggle for Biafra independence has gone far beyond violent containment and way beyond the capacity of Nigeria to deal with. What dimension our struggle will take going forward depends on what fate Nigeria visited or intend to visit on our leader. One outcome is guaranteed in all this, should Nigeria not produce our leader in court on the 17th of October 2017, there will be an inevitable confrontation on a scale the human mind cannot imagine, at a time and place of our choosing. By nature we are peace loving people, Nigeria should stop provoking us into armed conflict. They should bring our leader to court.

Biafra: You Can’t Hold Kanu Hostage And At Same Time Conducting Elections In Our Land, Produce Him In Court Or Face The Consequences— Biafra Writers Tells FG




















By Eluwa Chidiebere || For Biafra Writers

October 16, 2017

It is no news that the people have completely lost faith in the five fools occupying the Southeastern government houses in Biafra land and parading themselves as governors. We now understand that the tragedy of a people begins when they are being led by blind leaders. Underdevelopment, betrayal, killing of their own people and abusive use of force becomes a tradition when you have selfish leaders.

Indeed, this is a new age where reasoning, understanding and action have come to play. Unlike Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Nelson Mandela of South Africa, a leader who cannot walk freely in the midst of his people without the aid of heavily armed security men, is an ostracized leader only leading his wife and children. Such a leader is groping in the dark, and becomes the most haunted animal among his own people because he is protecting only his personal interest and not that of his people. Those who eat alone they say, will also die alone. Of course, he who thinks that he is leading but actually has no one following him is only taking a walk.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the real prophet of all genuine people, the man that carries the book of truth, who sings the songs of total liberation and redemption, has won it all. The rest is in the hands of his people to finish. Before his second abduction by the Nigerian military, he gave a simple order for his people to follow so that we may rid ourselves free from this hell and our present day Egypt known as Nigeria. That simple order is to boycott elections in Biafra land. This simple order has become Nigeria's serious headache. But there is nothing Nigeria or anyone can do since the cat has been let loose.

Read Also: Biafra: As Kanu goes to Court on Tuesday, will the judge wield the weight of law of contempt against the Federal government?

When a leader gives a command, the people will harken to his words. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu being the true and chosen leader of the people has been demonstrated in different forms; top of the pile was this year's 30th May Sit-At-Home order which was observed to the core. No governor in the Southeast can give such an order and it Is being obeyed without the use of force. The difference is clear.

The Nigerian government should produce the man of the people or be ready to face the consequences that follows. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, whose court case is ongoing at Abuja Federal High Court, was kidnapped by the Nigerian military who invaded his home in Afaraukwu Ibeku in Umuahia, Abia State on 14th of October, 2017, and took him away without the consent of the judge presiding over his case. It is crystal clear that the accuser seeks the elimination of the accused only when the accuser has learnt that his lies, spurious charges, and treacherous moves can no longer hold water in the court of law. When the leader of the Biafran people in his thunderous voice was telling the world how bad this demonic enclave called Nigeria is, many people around the world never believed until he came down to Nigeria to render credence to his claims through the Nigerian judiciary.

Kidnaping him for the second time has worsened issues. You cannot be holding the leader of a people and at the same time, conducting election in their land. You cannot be holding hostage a man who has and shares same feeling with the maligned, deprived and maltreated people in our land and expect them to come and vote for those who will kill and keep them in perpetual poverty and bondage forever, No. Come November 18th, 2017, the people are going to show their grievances by sitting at home. One thing is sure, we are a people and we are going to show that to the world.

IPOB: PRESS RELEASE; PARENTS CAN RETURN OUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL AS WE CONTINUE TO MONITOR EVENTS












October 14, 2017

IPOB PRESS RELEASE

We the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide under the command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to inform Biafrans across the length and breadth of Biafraland to return our children back to school from Monday October 16, 2017. This directive is important because we have determined that for the time being, men of the Nigerian Army responsible for the murderous outrage of forcible vaccinations of our children has been withdrawn from our schools and banned from continuing with this criminal exercise.

We want to use this opportunity to inform parents and guardians, particularly those in Anambra State, to return their children back to school on Monday 16th of October 2017. Right now, IPOB have ascertained that Nigerian soldiers have withdrawn the vaccination program.

IPOB will continue to monitor the situation in schools in and around Biafraland and particularly Anambra State until this evil plot by the APC Nigerian government and their accomplices in Igbo land like Gov. Willie Obiano, is totally terminated by Nigerian Army HQ. Our early warning team is in place all over Anambra State and should anything untoward be spotted on Monday morning or Nigerian Army vehicles found anywhere near any school, IPOB would raise the alarm immediately to recall our children as was the case last week Thursday. We are determined to ensure the safety and well being of our children and under no circumstance will we allow them to be poisoned with killer virus administered by those that want all Biafrans dead.

The plan of Willie Obiano and corrupt Igbo governors, including political contractors in Abuja to sacrifice the lives of our children to please their fellow blood thirsty Hausa Fulani Islamic caliphate in Arewa North for the sake of second term in office or political position, will not be allowed. At IPOB, our children are important to us, after all we are sacrificing our lives on a daily basis in pursuit of Biafra that we may give them a future to be proud of.

Biafra: As Kanu goes to Court on Tuesday, will the judge wield the weight of law of contempt against the Federal government?



By Chukwuemeka Chimerue | For Biafra Writers

October 14, 2017

It is no longer news that part of the bail conditions handed down to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by an Abuja High Court on April 14, 2017, emphasized that he must always present himself in court during trials. It is also not in doubt that the Nigerian government through its Army did not only by the illegal invasion and subsequent raids on the private home of the IPOB leader, violate his fundamental human rights while still enjoying his bail, but also breached the agreement it had with the court which otherwise could be referred to as “contempt of the court of law”.

The overt disrespect or willful disobedience of the authority of the Nigerian court of law by the Army and/or the Federal government is such that should have a far-reaching consequence in saner climes, coupled with the fact that someone’s privacy and fundamental rights were brazenly abused in the process.

Therefore, as the upcoming court case on Tuesday, 17th October 2017, approaches, it is expected that the Nigerian army who laid siege on Kanu’s residence after which he was declared missing, should produce him to stand trial and this demand should not be taken for granted as a lot of things are currently at stake. In order to save themselves from frequent judicial disgrace and the unnecessary truncate of judicial process, the Nigerian government through its Army must produce Nnamdi Kanu in court to answer to his charges.

It was ignoble, impolitic and smacks of ignorance that the Nigerian government and her army would even contemplate breaching the agreement they had with the court by invading, without court orders, into the house of Nnamdi Kanu. It was even more inexpedient that the same government who had lodged a complaint against Kanu in court would carry out such an ignoble act. What then informed the need for approaching the lawcourt if the government would not exercise enough patience for the court to give its verdict, rather, they furiously and arrogantly eroded the sanctity and independence of the judiciary with brazen impunity.

Coming from the legal point of view, the act of undermining the authority of the court of law by operatives of the Nigerian security in this context, is a criminal contempt committed against the majesty of the court as an agency of government. This direct criminal contempt is an insult to the court and resistance to its authority, committed in its presence, and thus an interference with the process of litigation in Kanu’s case which is still pending before the court.

It is the universal rule that contempts of this sort should be punished by the same judge without a jury trial and without truth as a defense. This is clearly what the law ought to be. Unless offenses of this sort can be punished they cannot be stopped, and if they cannot be stopped litigation will have to stop.

The necessity for punishment requires also that it be summary and exemplary. The offenders must be punished instanter. To do this, there is no other course than punishment by the same judge without a jury and without going into the question of truth. In this, there is danger of abuse, but such danger is less than the danger of the stoppage of justice. The judge should have the power to imprison the offender at once and let the offender purge himself later.

The situation on the ground is even worse in this context as Kanu’s whereabouts remain unknown at the instance of the breach of court’s authority by the Nigerian government. This makes it appear as though the government has become a judge in its own case. Yet, it is a general truth, if not a general principle of law, that no one should be the judge in his own case. There is danger of injustice where punishment is left to a judge who has suffered from contempt, and who is both judge and jury in his own case. Such a power in the hands of an angry man is liable to be abused.

It would seem that a sense of common decency and of the appropriateness of things would make Hon. Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako, the presiding judge in Kanu’s trial to apportion blames as well as punish the Federal government who is the prime offender here so as to serve as a deterrent for future trials and/or occurrences.

Also, the objection to excluding truth as a defense is also that it violates our sense of justice. It is just like the old rule that truth was not a defense in criminal libel, but that “the greater the truth, the greater the libel.”

Since the power to punish for contempt is an inherent power of the courts, the learned judge must follow the weight of authority on the law of contempt, to render justice in the pending case which already has the general approval of the people.

Therefore, come October 17, Justice Binta Nyako must hold by the great weight of authority that there is an established case of contempt of the court on the part of the Prosecution (Federal government) and bring the full weight of the law against them. Neglecting or going against this, would not only amount to an outrage on justice but a judicial tyranny.

BIAFRA: IFEANYI EJIOFOR WRITES BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION - SEE DETAILS












By Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor ESQ.
October 2017.
The High Commissioner,
British High Commission,
19, Torrens Close,
Maitama,
Abuja.
Dear Sir,

RE: UNLAWFUL RAIDS, INTIMIDATION AND LOOTING IN THE HOME OF NNAMDI KANU, BY THE NIGERIAN MILITARY OPERATIVES AND THEIR POLICE COUNTERPARTS, ON THE 8TH DAY OF OCTOBER, 2017

We are Solicitors to the family of HIS ROYAL MAJESTY, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu hereinafter referred to as “Our Client” and on whose standing instruction we file this communication with the British Government.

It is our brief, that on the 8th day of October, 2017, our Client’s son’s home (Nnamdi Kanu) in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia State was invaded, and violently looted by rampaging Nigerian Soldiers and their police counterparts.

he CCTV footage which picked the horrendous raids, revealed the brazen looting and carting away of valuables and household equipments by the above named security agents.

The raid and consequent looting in the home of our Client’s son, (a British Citizen) by the Soldiers and their Police counterparts does not enjoy the protection, backing, and legitimacy of any known legislative enactment in Nigeria, more so, when there are various pending Law suits, instituted at the Federal High Court Abuja, Nigeria, challenging, on the whole, the initial murderous invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home by the Nigerian Soldiers, his abduction from his home or his possible elimination by the rampaging troops, request for Court order to compel the Nigerian Military to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court, and also Law Suit requesting the Court to vacate the Exparte order purportedly proscribing Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) and their designation as a terrorist organization. We may not conveniently dwell extensively on the details of this law Suit as it is lis pendens.

Till date, neither our Client’s family members nor Solicitors has been able to establish any form of contact with Nnamdi Kanu since the murderous invasion of his home on the 14th September 2017, by the trigger happy soldiers. It is therefore, not unlikely, that he may have been killed in the well coordinated bloody onslaught in his home.

It is reasonably expected Sir, that the Nigerian Government should respect the judicial process and allow the status quo to subsist, pending the determination of the above referenced cases, instead of resorting to brute but inordinate means to intimidate further, and harass the already havoc-wrecked members of our client’s family.

The attached unimpeachable CCTV footage picked clearly the horrendous activity of these rampaging security personnel in the home of our client.

Very apposite to bring to the attention of the British Government, that on the 10th day of October 2017, the Federal Government of Nigeria deliberately failed to show appearance in the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice Abuja, to defend, USD$800, Million Suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, since 2016, for reparation on account of gross violation of his Fundamental Rights. For inexplicable reasons not grounded in Law or practice, the matter was for the 3rd time, adjourned at the instance of the Federal Government of Nigeria, who is desperately frustrating the proceedings of the court using their overbearing influence.

Suit challenging the purported proscription of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its branding as a terrorist organization is pending before the very Court that issued the obnoxious order. Despite timeous steps taken to ensure that the order of proscription made without jurisdiction, is promptly revisited, it was now scheduled for hearing on the 23rd day of October, 2017. This is despite the fact that the Exparte Order purportedly proscribing the Indigenous People of Biafra was obtained the same day the Originating Process was filed in the same Court by the Attorney General of the Federation of Nigeria.

The British Government is respectfully advised to treat the most touted proscription of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with greatest circumspect as the legality or otherwise of such exercise is now a subject of litigation. It cannot stand because the entire process culminating to the granting of the order is laden with high powered conspiracy, double standard, and bad faith. It is more so, when the order in question is now being challenged in Suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/871/2017, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE FEDERATION VS INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB), and slated for hearing on the 23rd day of October, 2017.

We therefore commend the British Government in particular, and other responsible foreign Governments for rising up to the occasion in their uniform condemnation of the murderous military onslaught in the South Eastern States of Nigeria, particularly the bloody raid on Nnamdi Kanu’s home, and proscription of Indigenous People of Biafra.

The Federal Government of Nigeria is under obligation to furnish the British Government with the particulars of Nnamdi Kanu’s current state. The question on Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts has continued to beg for an answer, which must be answered by the authority that invaded his home on the 14th day of September, 2017, and shot many unarmed and defenseless civilians dead, while many were abducted alive.

The British Government is therefore, most respectfully invited to prevail on the Nigerian Government to suspend further untoward activities in Nnamdi Kanu’s home, and to return without further ado, all his private properties looted on the 8th day of October, 2017.

It is our further prayers that the Nigerian Government should be requested to produce our Client’s son (Nnamdi Kanu) whose whereabouts could not be accounted for, after the murderous raid in his home on the 14th September, 2017 or release the corpse to our Client for befitting burial if he was killed in the murderous attack.

It is our hope that the British Government will most respectfully treat our request with utmost urgency deserving in the circumstance.
Accept the assurances of our deepest regards Sir.

Yours Faithfully,
FOR: I.C. EJIOFOR & CO.
