President Muhammadu Buhari has been warned that further illegal detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, would be considered kidnapping.
Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, however accused the Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami of acting the script of Miyetti Allah cattle sellers.
According to the rights advocacy group, President Buhari must stop playing what it describes as the toxic Northern ethnic card and obey the court verdict that discharged the IPOB leader.
HURIWA further slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s constituted national security council which recommended that the IPOB leader remains in detention, describing the recommendation as a clear violation of the binding judgement of the appellate court
In a statement signed by the national coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko ,it described the position of the Federal Attorney-General on the Court of Appeal’s considered judgment on Nnamdi Kanu “as pedestrian, puerile, and laughable,”.
The statement continued:”Any further detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu would amount to active hostage-taking and an outright criminal case of kidnapping, which is actionable”. We wonder why a lawyer of Malami’s illustrious status adorning the title of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria is now speaking like a one-hundred-level law student of one road-side law faculty in the corner of Nigeria.
This holder of the High office of the AGF must take note that history won’t be kind to him for constantly been seen arguing against the principles of the Rule of law when he ought to speak and act as the unbiased chief law officer of the federation and not of Miyetti Allah Cattle Owners Association, the statement concludes.
