Allow Court Handle Nnamdi Kanu's Matter- Buhari tells South-East leaders

Family of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has again accused the Federal Government of perpetrating illegality by the manner in which their brother was brought back to Nigeria.

In a release by his younger brother, Kalunta Kanu, the family while accusing the federal government of involvement in illegalities in the Kanu matter, insisted on knowing the exact location from where their brother was intercepted as alleged by the Nigerian government, “and how come no clarification has been given up until this date”.

The family insisted that the action of the federal government amounted to illegality, saying that you can not put illegality on illegality and expect it to stand.

The release queried why the federal government of Nigeria has failed to produce before the Federal High Court, Abuja clarifications on how Kanu was renditioned to Nigeria.

The family also expressed shock at the approach of the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako to the matter, as they threatened that if the Court failed to adhere to constitutional Law, they would be compelled to invoke the Prima Facie evidence against the federal government.

The IPOB leader’s family lamented that the President Mohammadu Buhari-led administration has bluntly failed to proffer clarifications on the processes deployed in the rendition of the freedom fighter.

“The question the family is still asking the federal government of Nigeria is; why is it that clarification has not been given on how Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was renditioned to Nigeria?

“We want to know, like the federal government said, where was he intercepted from and how come no clarification has been given up until this date?”

Describing the process as implemented by the federal government and the Court as “a travesty of justice”, the family who recounted that Kanu was arrested in 2015 on seven-count charge, disclosed amidst consternation that the said charges had been expunged, whereas Kanu’s co-defendants were still answering those previous charges.

“Therefore, anybody or any Court assigned to try his case, the family considers that as a travesty of justice. What has taken place over his rendition is illegal and therefore, any Court here intending to try Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will also be considered as illegality.
Therefore, you cannot put illegality on illegality.

“It will also interest you to know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in 2015 on seven-count charge. Would you also agree with us that as we speak with you today, those charges have been expunged and his co-defendants are still answering those previous charges?

So, what happened to those previous charges in which he was detained for?
“Now, as we speak, the federal government in their usual style amended Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s charges; they came back with 15 amended count charges against him and it will also interest you to know that up until this moment, there is no single evidence before the Court.
