Kabiru Sokoto, a convicted Boko Haram terrorist that is serving a life-in-jail sentence, has recently been released by Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria. Kabiru is the mastermind of the 2011 Christmas day bombing at St Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, which killed 37 people and injured 57 others.
This terrorist, convicted on December 2013, looked calm and fulfilled while stepping out of the prison yard; accosted by his fellow terrorists under the disguise of Nigerian armed force men with brandishing Ak47. He was released as a Sallah gift to his Muslims brothers and has joined his family. In reaction, the Human Rights Writers’ Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) and other notable individuals and groups have charged Buhari to justify this action or be found guilty of yet another disobedience to a court order.

Some other analysts have utterly condemned this act, describing it as "the crazy work of a disguised Boko Haram member on the seat of power." Following Buhari’s silence to the herdsmen killings which took a leap since he assumed office as the president of Nigeria, this act has further established an old impression of Buhari’s involvement in the activities of Boko Haram. Although barred by the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, from executing his grand plans of Islamizing Nigeria, Buhari has not ceased to promote radical Islam and unjustified terrorism to satisfy his wanton desires.
Recall that Boko Haram once named Buhari as their spokesperson and was once barred by the military while trying to visit a bombed scene at Suleja. His reason for incarcerating Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, is to have time to revert to the original plan that implicated him. As a fanatical Muslim, Buhari does not believe in the rule of secular law of the land, but only on the law of Allah (the creator of eternal virgins). He is a power-drunk illiterate, whose desire to ‘’sharialize’’ Africa is insatiable.

In one of Buhari’s speeches, he expressed: “It is a legal responsibility God has given us within the context of one Nigeria to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly…. I will continue to show openly and inside me, the total commitment to Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria. God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”
In 2003, Buhari publicly called on the Nigerian Muslims to “vote only for the presidential candidate that would defend and uphold the tenets of Islam…. This was the only way we can guarantee the spread of Islam.”

Owing to the above quotes and events, the world is beginning to understand that Nnamdi Kanu was right in his claims about Buhari and Nigeria at large. Buhari has released Kabiru Sokoto against court orders and is detaining Nnamdi Kanu against court orders too. This is a flagrant abuse of law! Buhari is doubtlessly aiding and abetting terrorism.
Where is the Nigerian Bar Association? Where is the Legal Aid Council? Where are the likes of Gani Fawehmi? Where are those who hold aloof the law? How do they keep mute and watch an illiterate dictator drag the rule of law in the mud? The whole world watches in silence, Africa inclusive! Buhari is already making history, he is setting a record that will stimulate his invitation to Hague.

We applaud HURIWA for its outright condemnation of this act. We ask other organizations to borrow leaf from HURIWA's bold step. We are Biafrans and we speak against every whit of evil no matter the personality involved. We detest and hold anyone who does not speak the truth in derision. This is our fallout with some Biafran politicians who think everything is about money and position. We are simply Democrats! Our elders say, "May evils accompany those that do it," and we do not observe the culture of silence in the face of injustice.
Recall too, that Buhari had earlier this year, released Boko Haram suspects and injected them into the Nigerain Security operatives. He has on several occasions advocated for a dialogue with these terrorists and has shown unhidden sympathy for them –we now understand why he said on June 2013, that ‘’military offensive against Boko Haram, is Anti-north’’.
Kabiru Sokoto’s release has capped it off. United Nations, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all other concerned organizations, both local and international should conduct more investigation on the above claims and bring Buhari to book.
Justice delayed is Justice denied.
