Biafra Agitation Case in Court Should Be Struck Out Over Prof Osinbajo Extra-Judicial Statement: An Open Letter from Family Writers to IPOB Legal Team
Dear erudite IPOB Legal Team,
BIAFRA CASE MUST BE STRUCK OUT DUE TO OSINBAJO EXTRA-JUDICIAL STATEMENT
Family Writers Press hereby wish to write this open letter to IPOB Legal Team to bring their attention to a reckless extra-judicial statement made by Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President/Coordinator of Affairs of Nigeria government, concerning Biafra case which is still pending in Court. The extra-judicial statement made by Prof Yemi Osinbajo (a supposed Acting-President of Nigeria) was contained in a publication made by Vanguard Newspaper which dated 19/6/2017, where he said verbatim that Biafra agitation is a violation of Nigeria Constitution and followed his extra-judicial statement up with another statement of judicial verdict when he said that "Those agitating for Biafra will be jailed". Family Writers Press observed that for such a reckless extra-judicial statement to come out from the supposed Nigeria Commander-in-Chief, judging by his position as Nigeria's Acting President is tantamount to an executive interference in judicial process which is capable of influencing the discretion of Federal High Court Abuja presided over by Justice Binta Nyako who is the presiding Judge over the case between Nigeria government and Nnamdi Kanu bothering on Biafra agitation. By this extra-judicial statement, Family Writers Press observed that Prof Yemi Osinbajo has by his utterances grossly violated Nigeria Constitution by making a statement on a case pending in the Court of Law in Nigeria.
By this extra-judicial statement, Family Writers Press also observed that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has by his unguarded utterances grossly violated the Nigerian Constitution by making a statement on a case that is still pending in the Court of Law in Nigeria. It is also an indisputable fact that the Nigerian Constitution is fraudulent and does not serve the interests of all the ethnic nationalities in the Nigerian state hence, it simply portray the crass ignorance of the international laws on the rights of the Indigenous People to self governance by the incompetent Vice president of the Nigerian state which Nigeria is signatory to.
Dear IPOB Legal Team led by Hon. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, it is with great concern and unfortunate situation that the person who made this statement is Nigeria's Acting-President, that we in Family Writers Press consider it necessary to advise the IPOB legal team to file an application before the court come next court sitting on July 11th, and demand unequivocally that the court strike out the remaining charges existing between Nigeria government (Plaintiff) and Nnamdi Kanu and his co defendants, because Prof Yemi Osinbajo as Acting-President and a self-styled Judge has already ruled that Biafra agitation is a violation of Nigeria Constitution outside court and those agitating for Biafra will be jailed in Osinbajo's own judicial discretion, instead of waiting for the court to conclude the case and make pronouncement. Family Writers Press is aware that any private citizen of Nigeria has the rights to free speech and that has no influence with the business of the court so to say, but for a political office holder of the level of the supposedly Acting-President of Nigeria to make such statement of judicial interference, the court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako should be prayed to immediately strike out the case because the statement of the Acting-President must influence its discretion if not properly handled.
Family Writers Press, wishes to make IPOB Legal team to remember that three years ago, there was a case of criminal conspiracy against David Cameron, the then British Prime Minister, allegedly involving one of his personal assistants. The case of criminal conspiracy allegedly targeted against David Cameron's Personal Assistant was struck out by the court handling the case because David Cameron even as a Prime Minister of Britain, mistakenly or carelessly granted a sharp comment to the journalists on the said case making the court to dismiss the case and release the suspect unconditionally. The court ruled that there is no verdict given by any court in Britain that will not be adjudged by observers as having been influenced by the extra-judicial comment of the Prime Minister. So, as Family Writers Press has no constitutional powers to file an application to ask the court to dismiss the remaining charges as no verdict given by any court in Nigeria, will be considered as free from the executive interference and influence coming from the extra-judicial statement made by Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the supposedly Acting-President of Nigeria, therefore, IPOB Legal Team should immediately prepare to institute the application come next court sitting to demand for the ultimate dismissal of the charges and the accompanying closure of the case cum unconditional release of other IPOB leaders and youths in various prison cells across the land.
Family Writers Press is now expecting a positive nod of acceptance of this advice as contained in this open letter coming from Family Writers Press.
May Chukwu Okike Abiama bless IPOB erudite Legal Team. Isseeee!
Yours sincerely in the Struggle.
