Federal Court Orders Unconditional Release Of Pro-‪Biafra‬ Leader Nnamdi Kanu


“A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday ordered an unconditional release of the pro-Biafra leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, from the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS),” according to Punch News Report.

“Justice Adeniyi Ademola in a ruling on Kanu’s bail application held his continued detention for about two months without any pending charges against him is against the provisions of section 35(4) of the Constitution.

“The judge also set aside an order granted the DSS on November 10, 2015 permitting the DSS to keep Kanu in its custody for 90 days.

“Earlier on Wednesday, a Magistrate’s Court in Wuse Zone 2 of the Federal Capital Territory on Wednesday struck out the charges instituted against a Kanu by the DSS.

“The DSS had applied for the discontinuance of the case to enable it to file charges of terrorism and terrorism financing against him. But Justice Ademola ruled on Thursday that with the continued detention of the pro-Biafra leader for over two months showed that the DSS lacked sufficient material to prosecute him or had yet to make up its mind to do so.” – Punch News.

Political analyst say that from political perspective, Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu recorded a great win while, Nigeria and Buhari lost. This is because, intimidation, harassment and persecution of Biafrans by Buhari government did not work. The killing of Biafrans did not work and Radio Biafra is still broadcasting, and TV broadcast has been added, according to sources.

The arrest of Nnamdi Kanu has made him a global phenomenon and rightful face of freedom.
