Biafra: Difference Between Self-Determination and Treason: An Enlightenment To Nigeria Legal Practitioners And Security Operatives

Due to the obvious inability of Nigeria legal practitioners, judicial officers and security personnels to spell out the differences between self-determination and treason, it has become very important that we use this medium to enlighten them on the topical issues to save Nigeria legal practice, judiciary, security authorities and general Nigeria academia from further disgrace and show of shame. Since few years ago when IPOB under the supreme command of Nnamdi Kanu started a crusade for the restoration of the noble nation of Biafra, the Nigeria legal practitioners led by Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami SAN, Director of Publication Prosecution, Mohammed Diri SAN and counsel to Nigeria government as it prosecute Nnamdi Kanu, Mr. Shaibu Labaran and Nigeria security operatives led by Musa Lawal Daura DG, DSS has interpreted the quest for the self-determination as treason and treasonable felony to the amazement of international community.

It is upon this intellectual dwarf disposition and show of shame by Nigeria legal practitioners of not knowing precisely the definition of self-determination and treason and their differences that it becomes necessary that we rightly define the two words under reference.

This is a process by which a people of any geographical location on earth, e.g. a region, a province, any unit of a federal state or at best any indigenous people expresses genuine desire to pursue a requisition to be in control of their political, economic, cultural and religious sovereignty. By this the people will no longer be under any external domination or remain in any neo-colonialism from imperialist. United Nations declarations of 2007 which Nigeria is a signatory to and even domesticated in the auxiliary laws of Nigeria, gave especially the indigenous people right to seek for adjustment of political boundaries where colonial powers forced them into without recourse to their interest if they so wish. It is upon this ground that Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu made it open to Nigeria government that the people of Biafra is no longer comfortable with Nigeria federation which skewed its policies against Biafrans and thereby embarked on self-determination which will herald the exit of the people from Nigeria. UN discovered that no country has ever given a positive nod of acceptance to the quest of self-determination of a component unit of its federation which so desires and thereby decided to remove self-determination from internal affairs of all countries on earth.

These two offenses are synonymous to each other and connotes any attempt, plan or completed action to forcefully to take over the government of Nigeria or any part thereof especially by a military coup. A Nigerian citizen could also be prosecuted if you by conduct or negligence assisted, participated or contributed in the action or you have the information and fail to report to appropriate authority for quick response to it. In this case, whether the treason was successful or foiled, there will be glaring evidences and exhibits such as date and time of the crime, recovered arms used or proposed to be used for the operation, armed gangs whether militants or mutinous or defected govt forces at the command of the leaders of the crime. When Gen Muhammadu Buhari committed treason in 1983 against Shehu Shagari govt, there was enormous evidences and exhibits should he has faced any prosecution.

By this enlightenment, we have made Nigeria legal practitioners and security operatives to understand the differences between the two key words. It has become obvious that Nnamdi Kanu is for self-determination and not treason because there are millions of Biafrans residing everywhere in the world who are agitating for the same issue of Biafra restoration. Why arresting Kanu? The question for Nigeria sovereignty and right to internal affairs which was raised by Abubakar Malami SAN, was lost when Nigeria govt failed to handle the issue of Biafra on time. Nigeria govt would have been smarter should they have not arrested and detained Nnamdi Kanu unlawfully but starts to pacify Biafrans from all fronts, invite Nnamdi Kanu for a dialogue or at best organize a referendum after pacifying them to test their resolve, may be the referendum may favour Nigeria govt as they so much desire Biafrans in their midst.

The failure of Nigeria govt to understand self-determination due to half-baked legal practitioners is why they failed to do the right thing on time and now the world want referendum for Biafrans because of the alarm which they raised above the pacification of Nigeria govt at the moment due to unlawful detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu. Thanks!
