Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Warns Osinbajo To Stop Making Provocative Comments

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has warned Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to refrain from making provocative and unacceptable comments pertaining to his trial before the Abuja division of the Federal High Court.

Kanu said he considered such remarks by the Acting President as a clear case of undue interference with judicial process capable of distorting the mindset of the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako.

Kanu’s position was contained in a press statement issued, in Abuja, by his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on the dislodgment of the concocted charge brought against him and others.

He made specific reference to the comment allegedly made by the Acting President in his presentation before the Igbo Council of Traditional Rulers, that the agitation for Biafra is unconstitutional as it offends section 2 of the 1999 constitution, 2011 [as amended].

In addition, Kanu also referred to the consequent threat of arrest and imprisonment of those that exercises their unquestionable and inalienable rights to self determination.

‘This declaration is respectfully considered as not only provocative, and unacceptable, but a clear case of undue interference with judicial process, which have the capacity of distorting the mindset of the judicial officer seized of our client’s case.

‘It is important to remind the Acting President that our client’s present political trial originated from his legitimate exercise of his constitutionally guaranteed rights to self determination as clearly provided for under extant laws, and International Instruments/Conventions.
