The Indigenous People of Biafra, Monday, commended the courage of Justice Hyeladzira Nganjiwa of a Federal High Court in Anambra who awarded damages against the federal government in a suit instituted by Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a lead counsel to IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu is facing multiple charges on alleged running a proscribed group, treason and jumping bail before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Adadainfo reports that on June 6, 2021, the Oraifite home of Barr Ejiofor was invaded by police operatives, who destoyed his property and killed his personal aide.
Ejiofor had, in a fundamental rights enforcement suit with No: FHC/AWK/CS/56/2021, dragged the federal government to court to challenge the alleged invasion.
Justice Nganjiwa,last Friday, awarded N102m compensation to Ejiofor, in addition to N5m awarded him for his Toyota Camry burnt by security agencies.
Comrade Emma Powerful, head of IPOB’s media, in a release, said, “We commend the recent judgment delivered in favour of the IPOB counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, whom the federal government and its compromised security agencies attacked and murdered his personal assistance, abducted others and burnt his personal car and country home at the Oraifite Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State.
“IPOB will not forget to appreciate Justice Ademola of Abuja High Court who gave justice to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in 2015 that he committed no crime against any man or nation.
“This honourable judge granted unconditional release of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in 2015, which unmasked the injustice that the current judge, Justice Binta Nyako, of the Federal High Court, Abuja, is trying so hard to mask again against Nnamdi Kanu.”
It however alleged that the attorney-general of Nigeria, Mr Abubakar Mallami, and Justice Binta Nyako, ‘had not come out openly to tell the world the crime of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that made them kidnap him from Kenya, extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria and still kept him in the DSS solidarity confinement till date’.
The statement read further, “It is important for everyone to know that Justice Binta Nyako is totally biased over the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. To them, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, being a Biafran and not a Fulani man, needs to be tortured and humiliated to submission.
“We want the world to ask Binta Nyako why is she still keeping Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the DSS solitary confinement with her endless court adjournments.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB are being persecuted by the Nigerian government for only having different political opinions. We have committed no crime known to any law in the world.
“Let the Biafra adversaries understand that, Biafra, through a UN-supervised referendum, is what we are asking for, and that we must get it. It doesn’t matter how many Biafrans they kill or jail.”
