Biafra: Fayose, Kayode and Chidoka Berate Violation Of Kanu's Human Right By FGN

The Human Right Abuses Of Nigerian Government Is Second To None— Gov. Fayose

April 26, 2017

ABUJA— Top Nigerian political leaders who have identified themselves with the Biafra restoration struggle of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, stormed the Abuja High Court to show solidarity.

Apart from religious clerics and the highly respected traditional rulers from different parts and ethnic groups in Biafraland, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, former Ministers of Aviation, Osita Chidoka and Femi Fani-Kayode, made top list of dignitaries who came to show solidarity at the ongoing trial of the IPOB leader.

However, a mild drama ensued at the court when the security operatives, prevented former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, from entering inside the courtroom. Some journalists billed to cover the court proceedings were also barred from gaining access to the courtroom.


Speaking to Biafra Writers’ Correspondent after the hearing, Governor Fayose who saluted the courageous spirit of Nnamdi Kanu stated that one day, he will walk free without any condition.

Fayose said: “I am here in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu for his courage in the face of intimidation and harassment in our country; the country that belongs to all of us, to all tribes.

“This oppression must not continue, God is greater than any man. This is a phase in our country and it shall surely pass.

“I salute your spirit, Nnamdi Kanu, keep hope alive, one day, history will be on your side.

“This oppression has become too much. This young man (Nnamdi Kanu), has done nothing wrong to deserve this trouble and the human right abuses of this government is second to none.

“I’ve come to identify with the Igbo nation; the people that are under great torture and embarrassment. We’ve seen today, tomorrow we’ll get better.

“One day the Lord will deliver us from these impostors; people that has turned this country to their personal business. This is not what we desired, this is not the change we’re looking for.”

However, Fayose declined comment on how he felt on the court’s granting of bail to the IPOB leader but said that he believes in his unconditional release.

He said: “I don’t want to comment on his bail, am not part of this case. As a citizen of this country, I shouldn’t on court matters. But my position remains that Kanu will one day walk into unconditional freedom in our country. His beliefs will not be killed, his courage and spirit will not be dampened.”

The Ekiti state governor also said that though he’s not from the South South or South East, he is a Nigerian who believes in justice and what is fair to all.

Also in his submission, the immediate former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Osita Chidoka, who posited that Kanu’s bail was the most significant day of his trial, said; “I came to court to hear the fate of the applications that were made. I came to court in solidarity with those who have been in detention for expressing their rights to freedom of speech and I believe that what I’ve seen today is a step in the right direction.

“Our nation needs healing, our nation needs new interpretation, our nation needs a new beginning and I believe that the direction the court took today is a direction that will lead us to starting the process of this healing.”
