BIAFRA: DSS’ FOLLY, JUSTICE TSOHO’S ABSURDITY AND THEIR TALE OF TREASONABLE FELONY AGAINST NNAMDI KANU

BIAFRA: DSS’ FOLLY, JUSTICE TSOHO’S ABSURDITY AND THEIR TALE OF TREASONABLE FELONY AGAINST NNAMDI KANU


17th September 2016

• No law permits the DSSS or any other security agency to detain Nnamdi Kanu for so long without trial. His continued detention without trial violates Section 158 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 and Section 35 of the 1999 constitution. -Justice Adeniyi Ademola, 17th December 2015.

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, was first charged of "treasonable felony’’ by the Department of State Security Services, DSSS, on the 18th of December 2015, barely 24 hours after Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja Division, had ordered his(Nnamdi Kanu’s) unconditional release.

Call to mind that 17th December 2016 was the sixth time Nnamdi Kanu’s case was heard in a court of law and the second time he was granted bail by a competent judge. Nnamdi Kanu was first granted bail on the 19th of October 2015 with stringent bail conditions which he still met but was not released at Buhari’s order. Court orders are nugatory to the Nigerian government and the DSS.

THE TALE OF TREASONABLE FELONY:
According to Black’s law dictionary, treason is an offence of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which one owes allegiance, either by making war against the state or by materially supporting its enemies.

More to the above definition, as enumerated under Section 41 of the Criminal Code Act Cap C38 laws of the Federation of Nigeria, no single individual can be charged solely with the offence of treasonable felony.

Taking into account that Nnamdi Kanu is the only defendant charged with the offence of treasonable felony, one will be more convinced of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor’s claim during a press conference on the 12th of August 2016 at Abuja, where he stated that "the concocted charge of treasonable felony preferred against Nnamdi Kanu, which was hurriedly filed by the State, upon being served with an order made by a Judge of Federal High Court directing the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, was to secure his continued but unjust incarceration.’’

Recall that the DSS had earlier charged Nnamdi Kanu for Criminal conspiracy, Managing & Belonging to an Unlawful Society and Criminal Intimidation contrary to section 97, 97b and 397 of the Penal Code (applicable in Northern Nigeria). This was struck out by Shuaibu Usman on Wednesday 16th of December 2016 which led the DSS to the hunt of fresh charges.

DSS’ desperate moves to convict Nnamdi Kanu since the 19th of October 2015 have rather exposed their deficiency and mocked their understanding of the law. They have used the media, intimidation, fallacious claims, and other evil machinations to nail the leader of IPOB but to no avail.

JUSTICE TSOHO’S ABSURDITY:
Acoording to Ezza Heritage of the Biafra Writers, "fair and impartial justice requires that judges act without regard to the identity of parties or their attorney's, the judge's own interests permitted him to step away when there is "actual conflict or bias or other impropriety or when a reasonable disinterested person would conclude that an appearance of impropriety exists.’’

Justice Tsoho’s involvement in this dirty game is evident with many facts to support it;
First, his disregard to the two previous court orders given on the 19th of October 2015 and on the 17th of December 2015 questions his integrity and ethical practice of his profession.
Secondly, his attempt to approve the use of a masked witness against Nnamdi Kanu, a ploy he earlier dismissed, paints a clear picture Tsoho’s dishourable and sordid personality.

It has taken 11 months for the DSS and the Nigerian government to convict Nnamdi Kanu of any crime. The DSS and the president of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buahri, have grossly abused the rights of Nnamdi Kanu to fair hearing; they have perverted justice, disregarded the rule of law and unremorsefully detained him (Nnamdi Kanu) at their will.

These above detailed events are clear evidences that the DSS has lost all moral grounds to further prosecute Nnamdi Kanu, it shows that Justice Tsoho is not interested in the rule of law but the rule of a person; it shows that Nigeria’s democratic system of government is only but an illusion.

IPOB is calling on the United Nations, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all other concerned organizations to help bring an end to this endless prosecution as Nnamdi Kanu, a prisoner of conscience,as he heads to court on the 26th day of September 2016.
All we ask for is: "Let Justice Prevail.’’
