Nnamdi Kanu: Stop Harassing Judicial Officers handling my case Nnamd Kanu tells Nigerian Government

The Biafra Herald
19th October 2016

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday told the Federal Government to stop what he called the harassment of judicial officers handling his case.

The IPOB leader, who has already initiated a contempt proceeding against the Federal Government following its refusal to obey the orders made by Justice Adetokunbo Ademola directing his unconditional release, pointed out that the recent invasion of the judge’s residence by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), was partly because he granted him (Kanu) bail.

Speaking through his defence lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi, in a statement issued in Abuja and obtained by New Telegraph, Kanu said the letter written by Justice Ademola to the National Judicial Council (NJC) in which he narrated his ordeals in the hands of DSS operatives was a pointer to the excesses of the executive lawlessness and interference in the judicial process.

He added that the action had shown desperate move by the Federal Government to intimidate the judicial officer that his case would be assigned to and refrain him or her from granting him bail in line with the direction expressed by President Muhammadu Buhari during his presidential media chat on December 30, 2015 that no court in Nigeria will grant Nnamdi Kanu bail.

“We roundly condemn the government’s interference with the judicial process in Nnamdi Kanu’s cases and the executive extra-judicial pronouncements.

The executive should henceforth refrain from the harassment of judicial officers handling the matters and promptly take all reasonable steps to comply with the order of the court that directed Nnamdi Kanu’s unconditional release. “This is a country that practices constitutional democracy, where the rule of law reigns supreme.

On the contrary, what we are seeing in practice is flagrant disobedience to court orders and violation of same constitution they had sworn to uphold,” he said.
