Mazi Nnamdi Kanu - IPOB Leader

Sometimes pressure can be a good thing; our resolves need to be tested and only men that have no words of their own fall by the way side. I am very much aware that Nnamdi Kanu’s case is a classical dilemma between conscience and interest. Being in that position of a Justice is not always about making calls to influence or making calls to appeal. It is about taking rare decisions; maintaining justice without favoritism and going down in history as one of those men that made the hardest call for the purpose of saving humanity or making a better world. Injustice always has a way of coming back to the doers or givers; we must be accountable to our actions to make up for Karma.

The trial of Nnamdi Kanu has gained such international awareness I will describe as ‘immense’ this however gave IPOB a chilling momentum in the agitation for an Independent Biafra with encyclopedia documenting the case; international media taking note and Guinness Book of record wading in through awarding IPOB the people to have organized peaceful protest in most Countries of the world on same purpose. There is an electronic documentation; the matter is immensely being followed and next generations will be taught history based on what is happening today. We cannot deny the media focus and extra ordinary documentation of this matter; anyone that comes into this matter has a date with history.

Let us once more take this opportunity to examine Biafra agitation; this is a peaceful agitation that has never ever been violent, an agitation that has followed all due process and managed by civilized and educated men. Self determination is a sacred right of all Indigenous people and to have lawfully and peacefully asked for this right deserves commendation. Nigeria is simply prone to barbarism; her politicians only interested in taking everything that belongs to the people, nobody wants to work, laziness is their watch word. Had Nigeria embraced this right to self determination; dialogued and take the positives therein, it could extensively add up to the Nigerian State. Nigerian leaders as black Africans that always fail to reason instead saw Biafra as odd hence chose to destroy lives, incarcerate agitators and spite on the constitution.

There is nothing that would come out of Nnamdi Kanu’s continued detention if not civil war; a full blown crisis that will destroy everything we have worked for over the years. It would make the hundreds of lives taken so far by Buhari and Biafrans yet remained peaceful a waste of perseverance. The people of Biafra have endured so much; they have sacrificed their loved ones for the sake of peace and denying Nnamdi Kanu bail could be a historic mistake. That might be the root cause of the impending civil war we all fear, now Justice Binta Nyako has the chance to nip this in the bud, let her engage it and get it right.

If we fail to stand behind Buhari; we can successfully avert this lingering crisis, Buhari must not hold onto the Court as justification for starring another civil war. On 1st of December; we have opportunity to say no to crisis, there is opportunity to urge Buhari to find lasting political solution to Biafra question. Denying Nnamdi Kanu bail would be a historic mistake because Binta Nyako shall go down in history as one of those that failed to get it right when there is time for amendment and restructuring. The continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu will beget nothing else but full blown crisis that will favor nobody.

The people of Biafra have endured so much pain; arrest, killing and maiming, Biafrans are not cowards but civilized people that want law to rule. There won’t be continuous obedience to the law or peace advocacy if the law is continuously manipulated against them. There is nothing and I mean nothing that would come out of Nnamdi Kanu’s continued detention through bail denial if not crisis. The people of Biafra are very determined this time around; it would be in the best interest of everybody for Binta Nyako to understand that an ideology its time has come cannot be stopped. Nobody is longing for crisis because nobody will be left out; I am only urging for caution and justice.

Only justice can avoid Biafra from spilling into another civil war; we need understanding, we need justice, self determination is not war, self determination calls not for incarceration and self determination is all about finding ourselves. Britain has such in Scotland, Spain has such in Catalonia, USA has such in California, it is everywhere and Nigeria must not be exceptional. Nigeria must not be barbaric or unconstitutional to solve a problem; there must be a means to talk issues than gun issues. Nnamdi Kanu is a good example of that, by opening radio Biafra instead of opening militia group, by demanding everything with his mouth instead of gunning out his demand.

The denial of bail application by Justice Binta Nyako could be a historic mistake because it would add to the countdown to another civil war. By granting Nnamdi Kanu bail, it is a clear indication that the Court is ready to hear the matter. The Court will be able to avert this looming crisis and take charge of the future and only justice would bring this desired peace. The Court must not have Nnamdi Kanu in detention to see off this matter as Buhari illegally or unethically demanded. IPOB is ready for legal interpretation or adjudication to determine the fate of Biafra restoration. What the people will vehemently oppose is incarcerating their leader for simply asking for referendum. If Justice Binta Nyako fails to do justice by justly granting Nnamdi Kanu bail; let it be counted that we have lost a window of opportunity to avert an impending doom.
