ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has remained steadfast in the face of the Supreme Court’s decision to proceed with his trial on terrorism allegations.
Kanu, through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, after the visit to the headquarters of the Depatment State Services, DSS, in Abuja, where Kanu was detained for over two years, expressed determination and raised questions about the legal process.
However, reacting to the verdict of the Supreme Court by citing some of the sections of the Nigeria constitution, he said: “The eventual verdict of the Supreme Court was conveyed to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and he expressed reservations on the outcome.
“However, Onyendu elected to accept this outcome because of the finality of the Supreme Court decisions, and not because they are infallible.
“Nevertheless, in accepting this verdict, Onyendu specifically requested that the following compelling questions be put out publicly to the discerning members of the public, who are keenly following the trajectory of this case: to wit:
“Did the decision of the Supreme Court, which substantially sanctioned the Federal Government’s illegal act of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s abduction and extraordinary rendition to Nigeria, effectively repeal the following Nigerian laws, which were all cited in our brief before the Supreme Court?
“Onyendu once again thanked Ezigbo UmuChineke for your prayers and love, even as he encouraged all to remain focused and keep their eyes on the ball.
“Onyendu enjoined his followers to continue to conduct themselves peacefully as they have always done.”
