IPOB SUES NIGERIA AT FEDERAL HIGH COURT OWERRI - Read, Listen and Watch the FACTS of the case.
Suit filed by SE/SS/Middle Belt. By the authority of the Supreme Council of Elders, I extend greetings to all of you. Welcome all of you.
What we are doing is a history making event. You see, people make history and people read history. Today you are making history which other people will read.
When we started this case, it appeared that we are joking. People doubted how possible would it be to sue Nigeria. Some asked, will it not be treasonable offense. Will they not kill you? Will they not arrest and jail you? People were afraid, but we the lawyers looked into the law, our law.
The right to self-determination, the right to independence is a human right. And fortunately, for us that right to self-determination is in grind in our own law in Nigeria.
The Nigerian law says that the Indigenous People of the land have right to self-determination. So, we now picked it, the Nigerian law and drafted our case and then filed action against Nigerian government.
Then the Nigerian government asked, who is behind this case. And we said Bilie Human Right Initiative (BHRI). BHRI is a human rights organization suing Nigeria. Nigerian government said, there must be people that sent BHRI to fight? Nigeria is correct. Are they not? Yea!
They want to know who are these people behind this fight? That was when the elders of Biafraland now said, we are the people. HRM Honorable Justice Eze Ozobu is the Chairman, Dr. Dozie Ikedife is the Deputy Chairman, General Joe Achuzie (rtd), Secretary General and all other elders and traditional rulers, all of them now came up and said, “We are the elders of the land. We authorized this case against Nigeria, Let Biafra Go”.
That was when Aso Rock know that the case is very serious. When they saw the signatures of all these eminent men, including Justice Ozobu. He signed, Let Biafra sue Nigeria and let my people be free. So the case started.
Nigeria now knew that this was a very serious case and they started looking for lawyers who will defend them. Nigeria has got about three lawyer now. The first lawyer came, we fought and disgraced them and they ran away. They hired another lawyer and we disgraced them and they ran away. Nigeria had about three law firms now. We hit them and they ran awy.
The case is very very hot now.
