Amadioha (Thunder)
Just as the drama continues in Justice Binta Nyako's court room unabated; it is pertinent to take critical analysis of what is happening in the judicial arm of government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Any human being with common sense can feel the danger in the air, even the blind can perceive the rotten odour emanating from the seat of "Justice" in Justice Binta Nyako's court room. With the dramas so far as it continues to unfold itself, what else do the world expect from the corrupt judicial arm of Nigeria government? What other directions are the world looking at in a country that was forcefully created in which  people who are virtually different in all perspective were joined together against their collective wishes?

The traditional or customary practices of these Nations were completely different. They all lived according to the precept of their culture without foisting it on any stranger. The ancient Biafran man had no place in their custom for sharia law; they had no idea of the existence of sharia law and the word itself had never been heard of in Biafraland. The Igbo speaking Biafrans were more familiar with words like "Chiukwu Okike Abiama, Amadioha, Okpimoodu, Ogwugwu, Arobinagu etc; this deities served as a common ties between the people of Biafra, when a case cannot be settled by the council of elders, the issue is taken to the shrine so that the accused can prove his innocence.

With the advent of colonialism that brought about Christianity which was forced on the people of Biafra either by crook, hook or brainwashing; Biafrans of Igbo extraction were made to know that their way of judgement is ungodly, barbaric and not civil thereby instituting the local law court where certain issues are settled without someone paying with his blood or being banished from the land and Biafrans followed this system as a welcome development.

The Hausa-Fulani man on his part had no knowledge of the existence of Ogwugwu and the rest of them but believed in the supremacy of the sharia law based on Islamic teachings and principles; they were highly centralized and obedient to whatsoever their religious monarch instructs them to a fault unlike the Igbo Biafrans who tends to ask "why" and challenge anything against his faith and belief.

However, With this Islamic mentality of born to rule and conquer, they over ran the habes(Hausa) through what they refer to as holy jihad war, which to this day accounts to what we know as  "Hausa/Fulani" sentiment. Now since Nigeria is made up of people with different traditions; people who once had a way of settling internal and external conflict, the imminent implementation of common law which of course was gotten from the colonial masters became unavoidable if the country must remain under one government.

The Igbo Biafrans had to set aside their oracles in cases that concerns Nigeria but then the Hausa-Fulani oligarchy remains hell bent and obstinate in handling national issues according to their traditional laws otherwise known and referred to as sharia law. If Nigeria as a secular state cannot make use of the common law practices known to humanity in handling national issues or cases concerning individuals who are not Muslim adherents nor Islamic faithful, then the country is heading for the rocks.

We appeal that Nnamdi Kanu and others standing trial be tried according to the principles of the common law practices; then in view of this if the accused are innocent of these bogus charges by tyrant Buhari as contained in the common law ethics, the accused should be freed.

But if at all, Nigeria is so arrogant that sharia law should be applied in this case concerning these young men in other to convict them by all means then there is need to appeal that we go over to traditional laws or Christian laws depending on which the young men adhere to.

As it is been perceived Nnamdi Kanu and his fellow defendants are Jewish faithful; so it becomes expedient that we let them be tried according to the Jewish principles, if they are Christian faithful, let them be tried as Christians, if they be traditionalists, Amadioha and the rest of them are there to pass out rightful judgment. But we must never accept that a Christian or a traditionalist in a secular state be tried according to sharia principles, it is highly unacceptable.

The whole of humanity should rise up against this very act of judicial misconduct for anybody silent at a time of injustice has taken sides with the oppressor. Biafrans will not sit and watch as a man that has never had anything to do with sharia law be judged according to its principles not even in a sharia court which is administered by alkali judges but in a Common law court known as federal high court in Nigeria being administered by a judge of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

For this on-goings so far....
We appeal to Chiukwu Okike Abiama
We appeal to the church,
We appeal to jewish law,
We appeal to whatsoever religion Nnamdi kanu adheres to since it has gotten to the game of religion, faith, custom and tradition to dispense justice.
