BIAFRA: AGAIN, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL INDICTS THE NIGERIAN ARMY OF EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS, BLASTS BUHARI OVER NNAMDI KANU, EL ZAKZAKY'S UNLAWFUL DETENTION.

BIAFRA: 
AGAIN, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL INDICTS THE NIGERIAN ARMY OF EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS, BLASTS BUHARI OVER NNAMDI KANU, EL ZAKZAKY'S UNLAWFUL DETENTION. 

17th January 2017

In a report released by the Acting Director of Amnesty Nigeria, Makmid Kamara, on Monday 16th January 2016, Amnesty International (AI) has described Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria, as a "flagrant ruler" and "a dangerous-contemnor" for disobeying several court orders that has ruled for the release of the Shiite leader, EL Zakzaky and the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. 

In AI's words: "The government's deliberate disregard to the ruling of its own courts demonstrates a flagrant and dangerous contempt for the rule of law."

Directing the rebuke to Muhammadu Buhari, Makmid stated: "Muhammadu Buhari should respect and dignify the rule of law by complying with court rulings. Doing that will help tame wide impunity in the country."

Accusing the Nigerian Army of "attempts to destroy and conceal evidence of mass slaughter" in Zaria, the report read: "El Zakzaky is being unlawfully detained. It might be part of wider effort to cover up Zaria massacre in which the Nigerian Army killed many."

Recall that El Zakzaky was shot at and arrested along with his wife, Malama Zeenah, by the Nigerian Army in December 2015 during an occasion of the Shiite procession in which the Nigerian Army killed over 600 members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN). "All available information indicates that the deaths of protesters were the consequence of excessive and arguably, unnecessary use of force." -Amnesty.

Consequently, the court has ruled for the release of El Zakazaky and his wife withing 45 days of this order which expired today 16 January 2016. As at the time of this report, El Zakazaky and his wife are in bad health condition and still detained by the Nigerian authority. 

In a like manner, IPOB leader and director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was kidnapped by members of the Department Of States Security Services (DSSS) on 14 October 2015. Despite an order at the Magistrate Court on 19 October 2015 to release him on bail and another order at the Federal High Court Abuja by Justice Adeniyi Ademola to release him UNCONDITIONALLY, Muhammadu Buhari has continued to detain him and delay the trial.

IPOB hereby urges the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and other human rights bodies to join in this fight against oppression, tyranny, repression, anarchy, abuse of human rights and gross abuse of the judicial system. Muhammadu Buhari's despotic tendencies must be checkmated to uphold the relevance of the values and vision of these human rights bodies.
