Release Nnamdi Kanu, FFK, Sambo Dasuki – Buhari Urged

by on May 30, 2016
 
As the nation marks its De­mocracy Day and President Mu­hammadu Buhari’s first year in office, Human Rights Writ­ers Association Of Nigeria (HURIWA) has asked the Presi­dent to release all political prisoners in­cluding Mr Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Condemning the continuous detention and trial of Kanu, HURIWA also stated the failure of Buhari’s administration to re­spect due process of the law in the cases involving such po­litical opponents like erstwhile Director of Media of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh; former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode and the im­mediate past National Security Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
“In January this year, two courts granted bail to the Leader of the Indige­nous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mr Nnamdi Kanu, including a Federal High Court in Abuja but the President personally granted extensive me­dia interviews where­by he prejudiced and intimidated judges to steer clear of grant­ing bails to the duo of Kanu and Dasuki for purportedly com­mitting in his words serious offences”, the body said.
In a press state­ment, HURIWA noted that, “Ever since that Presidential Media Chat, the courts and the judges have con­sistently failed to use their powers under Section 6 of the Con­stitution to compel the executive to com­ply with the bail or­ders.
“Just as the Court of Appeal has followed the body language of Mr President by af­firming the denial of bail to Kanu whose so -called offence is for calling for the actu­alisation of a separate state out of Nigeria to be called Biafra to be composed of the South East if a refer­endum agrees with this aspiration”.
HURIWA said it considers Kanu as well as other named detainees as political prisoner who should be released forthwith. It maintained that the Universal Declara­tion of Human rights guarantees the rights to freedom of speech including the rights to agitate for separate statehood.

    What Fund Has Kanu Looted 4m Nija? Has He Involved In Any Illegal Activity, Rather Than Asking 4 His People’s Right(freedom)? Did He Commit Offence Going About It Peacefully.Nawa 4 Nigeria Govt. And Curruption. No Wonder The Niger Delta Avengers Are Going The Other Way,

    Comment…buhari is not a true democrat and he can never be. he doesn’t respect the rule of law and Nigeria is bigger than his military ideology. the level of his incompetency will lead Nigeria no where. buhari has succeeded by using his political elements to intimidate most people that would have help him to organize the country and with this uncivilize attitude he is heading no where. Buhari change mantra has became an incurable syndrome to this country and I can see revolution coming if things continue just like this. Buhari should be awared that Ibos and other concerned Nigerians are very wise now than before he should get ready to with stand the forces that is coming.

    The best thing for president buhari to do is to embrace dialogue with the Niger delta, else I don’t see this ending through the use of military. We are talking about billions oil installation in Niger delta of wish some of them have been blown up and many more will soon fellow. This can not be won with military, Obasonjo tried using military and it didnt work. The earlier FG embrace in a dialogue with Niger delta, the better for the country. The oil blocks should be relocated, that is part of there grievances and I know is not going to be easy for those in the north to relinquish this oil blocks. They will fight tooth and nail to make sure they keep it and buhari will be siding the north as usual. The result will be the continues bombing of those oil installation in Niger delta. The north have been enjoying this for a long time and they will deem it to be foolish if they let it return to the rightful owner. Jonathan went in there and saw how this oil blocks were distributed among the northern caucus and the trumpet was blown for all to hear. Is time to correct the injustice that has been going on since after the Biafra war.
