The apex socio-cultural youth organization of Ndigbo, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has extolled Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for educating Justice Binta Nyako and the legal counsel to the federal government, Mr. Solomon Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, on the rudiments of law respecting his trial.

OYC national President General, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, made the remarks while speaking to newsmen after a Federal High Court “unjustly” denied Nnamdi Kanu bail in Abuja on Tuesday May 21, 2024.

Igboayaka regretted that the presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, is under the influence of Nigerian Federal Government led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

He said: “The facial expressions of Justice Binta Nyako in the court room when Nnamdi Kanu lambasted and educated her and Mr. Solomon Adegboyega Awomolo (SAN) on the fundamental roles of law shows that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has given negative instructions to Justice Binta Nyako over the court case of Nnamdi Kanu.”

Comrade Igboayaka recounted that the supreme was silent on granting bail to Nnamdi Kanu but was very vocal and condemned the operation python dance by federal government in 2017 that claimed the life of over 200 unarmed innocent civilians.

He condemned the abduction of Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya and opined that Nnamdi Kanu didn’t jump bail, rather his fleeing from Nigeria was as a result of attack on his life by Nigeria military.

“It’s unfortunate that Binta Nyako is not making any references to the Judgement of the Supreme Court, but believing and declaring that Nnamdi Kanu jumped bail contrary to the legal provision of Supreme court judgement.

“It’s obvious that Justice Binta Nyako relied on the teleguided script of federal government led by President Tinubu to decide the bail application of Nnamdi Kanu filled by the lead counsel, Barr. Aloy Ejimakor,” Igboayaka stated.

The OYC President General commended Nnamdi Kanu for bravery and doggedness in court in educating Justice Binta Nyako and the federal government lead counsel.

He stated: “The provision of Section 2, sub section 3(f) of terrorism prevention and provision Act of federal Republic of Nigeria implies that attempting to try Nnamdi Kanu by federal government is purely committing an act of terrorism.

“It’s crystal clear that Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped in Kenya by federal government in conspiracy with Kenya Government, breaching international and local law.

“Therefore, he can’t be tried in any court of competent jurisdiction in Nigeria.

“The way Nnamdi Kanu was abducted and smuggled to Nigeria, there’s no window of law to commence trial, for such trial by Justice Nyako will lead to legal somersault of Nigeria to the diplomatic treaty they signed with Kenya.

“This is why Justice Binta Nyako has been instructed by President Bola Tinubu to keep delaying Nnamdi Kanu court case, the same delay tactics implored by President Mohammadu Buhari.

“This delay is more dangerous to existence of Nigeria than the fear they have about Nnamdi Kanu.

“It’s obvious that his abduction in Kenya is similar to abduction of Alhaji Umaru Dikko in Britain in 5th July 1984.

“The British government foiled that illegal arrest on 6th July, citing breach of diplomatic law, and stopped the move to bring Umaru Dikko back to Nigeria.

“It’s, therefore, regrettable and a demonstration of illegality and mockery of international law that even British government and Kenya Government connived in the abduction of Mazi Kanu.

“Is it because he is an Igbo man?

“This is the empirical evidence that to be an Igbo man in Nigeria is more of a herculean and life threatening task, than using leg to cross Atlantic ocean,” Igboayaka lamented.

He urged Tinubu to realise that Nnamdi Kanu’s court case has exhausted its elasticity.

Hence, he said, stretching it more may lead Nigeria into the present national condition witnessed in Haiti.

“It’s, therefore, a matter of necessity that the federal government should discontinue the executive rascality and impunity of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

“He should speedily proffer a political solution to Kanu’s case and grant him unconditional release as a viable means to national restoration of peace and stability in Nigeria,” Comrade Igboayaka added.
