Nnamdi Kanu Secret Trial: Even Obafemi Awolowo's 'Treason Trial' Was Conducted In The Open
Still on the ruling of the Federal High Court, Abuja presided over by Justice Binta Nyako that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, shall be subjected to a secret trial, the group's Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful has penned down some questions for those, especially people from the Western part of the country who endorsed the court's decision. Read after the cut...
To all Yoruba commentators supporting secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu. Stop your infantile digression and address this simple question.
Was Chief Obafemi Awolowo's treason trial, mind you not treasonable felony, conducted in public or secret? Another question you must answer is this, was the then Action Group and today's IPOB the same? Which of the two do you consider more dangerous, in view how the former spread anarchy through major Yoruba towns at the time? I put these questions to you in the hope that you are a student of history.
Some of you Yoruba e-rats foolishly forget that there is a discipline called history. It records major events of our lives and preserves such for posterity. Awolowo was charged, tried in the open and convicted of the more serious charge of treason which is a capital offence. He was dumped in Calabar prison until Ojukwu released him. Yes Ojukwu an Igbo man and leader of Biafra granted pardon to Awolowo and released him to Yoruba people. It wasn't Hausa Fulani North that released Awolowo, it was a Biafran.
These are verifiable historical facts cleverly hidden by the hegemonic Yoruba gutter media, hence all of you e-rats continue to wallow in stupefying ignorance till date. This is IPOB! We deconstruct our enemies with facts and figures that is why Nnamdi Kanu's court case is a blessed opportunity for we Biafrans to lay bare before the world and human conscience everything wrong with the Zoo and why it should not be one. Some of you Yoruba internet rats in support of secret trial must know that the godfather of Yoruba politics Chief Obafemi Awolowo was a convicted felon and that is a tag Nnamdi Kanu can never be associated with. If Awolowo that committed treason was tried in the public with full media attendance, how much more Kanu answering to the lesser charge of treasonable felony. This is why white people assert with some degree of accuracy that black people cannot reason. This hypocritical attitude of some of you social commentators is indicative of the underlying pathological hatred you people have towards Igbos, which is largely driven by envy.
My question to Yoruba media practitioners is this, would you have supported a secret trial for your Chief Obafemi Awolowo? Within your predictable answer lies the reason why Nnamdi Kanu and his supporters don't want anything to do with Nigeria. You are vindictive, spiteful race of envious cowards. Then why are you in support of secret trial for Kanu. Do you now see how terrible you Yoruba people are as human beings? No wonder Hausa Fulani took Kwara State from you cowards. May Chukwu Okike Abiama have mercy on your cursed race."
