IPOB claims the Federal Government is using the adjournment to avoid responsibility for Nnamdi Kanu’s case.
Emma Powerful, a spokesperson for IPOB, expressed disappointment that the Federal Government has seemingly given up on their appeal against Kanu.
The government’s reluctance to take Kanu’s case to its natural conclusion puzzled him.
Part of a statement released by Powerful goes as follows: “IPOB movement ably headed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to repeat once again over what the Federal Government of Nigeria and Supreme Court of Nigeria are doing about the illegal arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody in Abuja.
They have no case against an honest man who has committed his life to the liberation of the poor and downtrodden in our society, and so the Federal Government of Nigeria has literally abandoned their appeal against our Supreme Leader in the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
The Nigerian government has a responsibility to ensure a thorough prosecution of the case, as this is the largest court case in the country’s history and they cannot simply avoid their own Court. It’s ironic that the federal government’s prosecutor is the one demanding their presence in court. Isn’t it strange?
Why is the federal government so reluctant to pursue the Supreme Court lawsuit they initiated against Kanu? We want to know if there is a higher authority to which our leader can appeal, given that the Federal Government and the Judiciary are hesitant to hear this matter and the Supreme Court of Nigeria is unlikely to ever hear this case.
