It is said that "he who comes to equity must come with clean hands". This saying can be applied in the case of Mr Nnamdi Kanu as many organizations observing this case had wrongly advised him and his group to apologize to President Buhari.
Devoid of guilt, having nothing to beg of and having been convinced of their innocence have refused to succumb to any treat or intimidation.
It has come to our notice that President Muhammadu Buhari and his militia group is gradually drifting to enforcing secret trial on the ongoing case of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu. This brings tough questions to many minds on why the federal government is overtly afraid to convict Nnamdi Kanu in public if at all they have any genuine evidence against him. It is about time the Nigeria government comes out openly and tell the world what their intentions are in this case. There is an urgent need for all human right groups to rise up and defend the law against those who abuses it.

Buhari and his cohorts should come out and make their intentions known to the public concerning this case or is there anything they are not telling us? What and who empowered a DSS official to make an outburst, saying that he cannot obey orders or rulings from a Judge of a Federal High Court and the whole world was looking sheepishly? Their silence goes a long way further to expose the decay in Nigeria's judicial system. How can the rule of law be so brazenly abused and even the learned citizens still maintain a deafening silence as if nothing has happened? Or are they silent because they would not want to associate themselves with the issue of Biafra and Biafrans in general? Or are they indirectly telling the world that Buhari and his DSS are greater than the law and they are afraid of him?
I do not want to believe that all the judges in Nigeria have sold their conscience in pursuit of mundane wealth. It is time Nigeria calls a spade a spade knowing fully well that this is a threat to justice and a breach of democracy and the rule of law.
I believe this will reach the relevant authorities of the Nigerian judiciary to take it upon themselves to restructure the justice system and clear the doubt that they are not a tool in the hands of President Buhari to achieve whatever his intentions are just like the DSS.
Must Nigeria go extra mile just to destroy an innocent man who has done nothing wrong except preaching the truth and campaigning for the freedom of his people which is anyway done under the tenets of the law?
With the actions of the Buhari-led Federal government and the recent activities of his henchmen in the Nigerian military, it is now obvious that Nnamdi Kanu has been vindicated. The truth still remains that whatever they are planing to do, IPOB and good-spirited individuals will continue to reveal their evil plans of crimes against humanity and the extermination of Biafrans exercising their right of self-determination.
