Nnamdi Kanu: Orji Kalu Tells Buhari What To Do
The Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reconsider the decision on appealing the judgement that released the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The Federal Government had earlier on Thursday, dragged Nnamdi Kanu to the Supreme Court following an order of the Court of Appeal freeing the IPOB leader.
Reacting to that, Kalu, in a video clip he shared on his verified Facebook page, pleaded with the federal government to rather pursue a political solution in the case of the detained IPOB leader.
According to Senator Kalu, “an appeal to our dear President Muhammad Buhari (GCFR) and the Attorney General of the Federation to reconsider the decision on appealing the judgement of Court of Appeal at the Supreme Court and release Maazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“The Federal Government should take advantage of the court’s judgement and pursue political solution rather than an appeal at the Supreme Court.”
Asari Dokubo Reacts To Court Order On Nnamdi Kanu’s Discharge
Meanwhile, former militant leader, Asari Dokubo has faulted the judgement of the Court of Appeal which discharged the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a recent Facebook Live, Dokubo said the Appeal Court lacks the right to confiscate the original jurisdiction of a court of the first instance.
The former militant accused the judges of corruption and allegedly keying into the political solution request by Igbo leaders for the IPOB leader.
He said: “Anybody who has primary knowledge of the law will know that the Appeal Court judgement is a total Kangaroo court proceeding and it cannot stand the test of time anywhere in the world. And it has brought the Nigerian judiciary into ridicule.
“Can the court give what was not in front of her? Can the Appeal Court confiscate the original jurisdiction of the court of the first instance? These are primary procedural laws that anybody who has knowledge of law would know. I read law for five years.
“What the Appeal Court ought to have done is refer the case to the court of the first instance. You cannot take the jurisdiction of the court of the first instance.
“Nnamdi Kanu is a terrorist who was lawfully captured and brought back to Nigeria. He is responsible for the killing of many Nigerians.”
