Dozens of kids from Igweocha Biafraland are set to stage a powerful
protest tomorrow April 25, 2017 at Federal High Court Abuja where the
leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu will be appearing in
court; with the Federal High Court set to rule on bail application filed
by the IPOB leader and co-defendants, as well as an application filed
against secret trial of the IPOB leader.
The coordinator of the adorable children who is also a top official of
IPOB zone 2 Umuebulu 2 Etche, Igweocha(Portharcourt) told Family Writers
that the kids will be presenting a gift to Nnamdi Kanu, and will also
protest against the secret trial of the Biafra leader, even as they have
vowed that they will not leave Abuja until Nnamdi Kanu whom they
addresses as their ‘father’ is released to them.
“We are taking the kids to Abuja to do a presentation of gift to our
leader and also to stand in solidarity with our leader Nnamdi Kanu as he
appears in court tomorrow,
“The children of Biafra are telling the Federal Republic of Nigeria to
release their leader and father, Nnamdi Kanu,” the coordinator of the
‘Futures of Biafraland’, Mazi Izuchukwu Agu stated while speaking with
Family Writers Press.
The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has been
held in detention since October 14, 2015 when he was arrested by agents
of Nigeria secret service known as Department of State Services,DSS.
Several court injunctions ordering for Kanu’s release have been
flagrantly disobeyed by the Nigeria government.
Meanwhile, the judge currently handling the case, Mrs. Binta Hajiya
Nyako had earlier ruled on December 13, 2016 that the trial of the IPOB
leader and three other co-defendants will be classified or done secretly
in line with the proposal of the Nigeria government. The defense
counsels to Nnamdi Kanu and co-defendants have seriously contested the
court ruling, arguing that it is totally unconstitutional and an abuse
of the defendants’ inalienable right to fair hearing.
The Justice Binta Nyako presided Federal High Court will tomorrow rule
on whether or not to continue with the secret trial, as well rule on the
bail application filed by Nnamdi Kanu and co-defendants(Benjamin
Madubugwu, David Nwawusi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe).
