The nearly impossible bail conditions given to the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Justice Binta Nyako and the freely/unconditional release of Book Haram terrorists on the order of president Muhammadu Buhari has proven to the world how corrupt Nigerian government and her judicial system can be. In Nigeria, self-determination is now a treasonous crime while professional and deadly terrorists are being released from detention and are protected by the Nigerian government and her judiciary.
Recalling back to president Buhari's speech during the former administration led by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan which he openly stated thus: "Any Attack On Boko Haram Terrorists Is An Attack To The North".
This statement can vividly prove that the present administration of president Buhari is sympathetic and is sponsoring boko haram, that is why they have been protecting the lives of terrorists than protecting/obeying rights to self-determination which is what Nnamdi Kanu was arrested for. Taking a good look at some of Nnamdi Kanu's kangaroo bail conditions, you will discover the incompetency in the Nigeria judicial system because some of the imposed bail conditions are breach to his fundamental human rights according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1949).
ON CITIZENS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
Article 19 states that "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; yet not everyone receives it. This right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers".
RIGHTS TO PERSONAL LIBERTY
Article 35. section (1) of Nigeria 1999 constitution which states that "Every person shall be entitled to his personal liberty and no person shall be deprived of such liberty save in the following cases and in accordance with a procedure permitted by law".
Every person shall be entitled to assemble freely and associate with other persons, and in particular he may form or belong to any political party, trade union or any other association for the protection of his interests.
Provided that the provisions of this section shall not derogate from the powers conferred by this Constitution on the Independent National Electoral Commission with respect to political parties to which that Commission does not accord recognition.
The above sections of Nigeria 1999 constitution and United Nation's 1949 declaration on fundamental human rights has indicted the Nigeria government for breaching Nnamdi Kanu's personal liberty by imposing rigorous bail conditions which restricts him (Nnamdi Kanu) from seeing or gathering with more than ten (10) persons. Also, Nnamdi Kanu cannot grant interviews which also restrict his freedom of expression that is enshrined under United Nations law.
ON THE UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS
The unconditional swapping of Boko Haram terrorist with the 82 Chibok women by the Nigerian government is a threat to national security which will also help in escalating terrorism around the country thereby putting humanity into danger.
THE STANCE OF IPOB ON THE BAIL CONDITIONS OF NNAMDI KANU
The rigorous bail conditions of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is definitely unacceptable by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Forcefully Stopping a mother from breast feeding the child will definitely convert the child to a vampire.
Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of over 70million followers, therefore, imposing a tactical bail conditions to hinder him (Nnamdi Kanu) from attending to Biafrans and interested groups is a breach to his personal liberty and it's highly unacceptable. IPOB on several occasions have condemned in it's entirety these obnoxious and extremely rigorous bail conditions given to her leader and have also vowed to challenge them in the court so that it is either strucked out or varied.
Kanu's human rights have been brazenly violated with impunity by the Nigerian government unabated and IPOB will no longer condone such treatment being meted on her leader to continue. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will continue to spearhead and champion the cause for Biafra restoration until Biafra is logically and completely restored.
