Senators from the South-East plead with Buhari to free Nnamdi Kanu
Share this post:

What happened: Recall that an Abuja Appellate Court had on Thursday, October 14, 2022, struck out all the charges brought against the IPOB leader by the government and ruled that he be released from the State Security Service (DSS) custody.

The court ruled that the federal government’s action to “extraordinarily renditioned” Kanu to Nigeria violated the country’s extradition treaty and also constituted a breach of Kanu’s fundamental human rights.

FG remains adamant: Reacting to the court pronouncement, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, stated that the judgement only discharged and did not acquit the separatist leader.

Malami’s word: “Let it be made clear to the general public that other issues that predate rendition on the basis of which Kanu jumped bail remain valid issues for judicial determination. The Federal Government will consider all available options open to us on judgment on rendition while pursuing determination of pre-rendition issues.

Senators appeal to Buhari: Meanwhile, the South East Caucus in the Senate has implored the President to take advantage of the Appeal Court ruling to pursue a political solution to solve the lingering problem.

As contained in a statement co-signed by the 14 South-East Senators on Thursday, October 20, 2022, the Caucus urged the Federal Government not to appeal the ruling at the Supreme Court in the interest of the country’s unity and peaceful coexistence of Nigerians.

The statement was signed by; Senators Orji Kalu (Majority Whip), Chukwuka Utazi (Minority Whip), Enyinnaya AbaribeUche EkwunifeStella OduahSam EgwuObinna OgbaTheodore OrjiChimaroke NnamaniMichael NnachiOnyewuchi EzenwaRochas OkorochaFrank Ibezim and Ifeanyi Uba.

The senators noted that going against the Appeal Court ruling would engender mixed interpretation, which may be injurious to the unity and corporate existence of the country.

The statement read: “We should be mindful of our diversity and the strengths we as a country derived therefrom. This is the time to show magnanimity and statesmanship. The Appeal Court has provided the leeway for the authorities to walk the talk as ones desirous of preserving Nigeria’s unity and respect for her diversity.

“Not appealing the matter and resorting to a political solution will in no way question the enormous powers of the federal government, rather it would enhance its prestige as a government in love with all segments of the Nigerian society.

“Accordingly, we as a Caucus and stakeholders in the Nigeria project appeal to Mr President, to remember the promise he made to a delegation of elders of Igboland sometime ago and release Nnamdi Kanu, especially now that the Appeal Court by that ruling removed the burden of interference from him. Going on Appeal would ultimately negate that kind gesture.

[STORY] BEHIND THE FINE FACE (Episode 02)

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
