BIAFRA: ECOWAS Court Will Affirm Kanu’s Freedom And Sanction The Nigerian Government For Violating His Rights

Saturday 22 October, 2016

When a child does something wrong and knowing fully well that the father will have him punished for it, he/she will try as much as possible to avoid the father, hiding and hoping that the matter will be forgotten. But in most cases, the matter is never forgotten; if not forgotten, the child tries to please the father by all means possible as long as he is not punished.
A good father will never spare the rod and spoil the child so as to prevent the child from committing worse evil in the future, that is the law governing the Ecowas court of justice. They are instituted to tame tyrants like Buhari and his DSS, who have made themselves "the law" that must be obeyed.

The above assertion as we have come to know applies in the case between Nnamdi Kanu and the federal government of Nigeria, where like the guilty child, the federal government tactically evaded court sitting in a bid to buy more time, perhaps try to see if the presiding jury in the case of Nnamdi Kanu at the Ecowas court are 'bribable' like John Tsoho the most corrupt Nigerian judge.


The Nigerian government led by Muhammadu Buhari had since the day it received a notice of a suit filed against them at the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice by the counsels to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, been running helter skelter, looking for ways to influence Ecowas from further proceeding with the case.

In their bid to make the ruling of Justice Ademola against Kanu seem incredible before Ecowas, they resorted to maligning his image, citing him as corrupt. Perhaps it just dawned on Buhari that Ademola's ruling preempted Kanu’s suit against him and his government at the Ecowas court. Buhari recently did not hide his disdain towards justice Ademola as he considers his ruling in favour of Kanu as a clog in the wheel of his injustice; as every action and inaction displayed towards the upright judge proves he has gone haywire as a result of his judgement which says that Nnamdi Kanu should be unconditionally released. "If not for Ademola, we wouldn’t be going to Ecowas court" Buhari was reported to have aired out in anger.

Buhari fought at all costs to prevent the Economic Community Court of west African states (Ecowas) from presiding over the case, knowing fully well that they would lose out at the end since the ECOWAS court cannot be influenced or compromised by him or anybody else.

It should be recalled that earlier in May 2016, the Federal government of Nigeria ordered the ECOWAS Community Court sitting in Abuja to hands off a matter brought before it by Nnamdi Kanu over his continued incarceration and denial of bail by the influenced Abuja High Court, claiming that the ECOWAS Court lack the requisite jurisdiction to hear and determine the matter before it.

As a proof that the Nigerian government is afraid of its imminent failure and disgrace at the regional court, they failed to appear before it on 5th of October 2016, to defend the suit lodged against it. Nigerian government having been known for abscondment from legal proceedings which they consider will never favour them, one is prompted to ask "will Buhari's goons ever appear before the regional court or are they going to run away from it again on the 8th of next month? Nevertheless, the answer remains inconsequential as Ecowas has affirmed to deliver judgement in their absence.

Going by the fact that Kanu; being a Prisoner of Conscience, have been detained unlawfully and extra-judicially for over one year, his human rights and that of his people; the Indigenous People of Biafra, breached by the Muhammadu Buhari’s security forces, I view them as a child who committed a serious crime at home and trying to escape from punishment. Because it is apparent that they have committed grave crimes against the confines of the law and worthy of utmost sanction. Sanctions which must surely attract some level of penàlty, with an order to immediately release Kanu and pay him compensatory damages for the gross violation of his fundamental human rights.

Unfortunately, the federal government this time, cannot escape the judgment of the regional court because the court made it unambiguously clear on 5th of October, that the hearing of the case will proceed and that judgment will be delivered even in the absence of the FG’s legal representatives.

It is well known that the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice is remarkable for its high repute and integrity in dispensing judgment, and will not allow the fantastically corrupt Nigerian government to drag its reputation to the mud by prolonging the case more than required by law or dishing out rulings not in tandem with the dictates of the law as obtainable in the corrupt and government controlled Nigerian courts.
