A group of Igbo Lawyers Association is insisting that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), must be brought to court on October 21, the next adjourned date for his trial. A statement jointly signed by the Coordinator V.C Onweremadu, and the group Secretary, Felix Jonathan said as a group, it was not going to entertain any excuse for Nnamdi Kanu unavailability in court on that day.
The statement reads in part; “Igbo Lawyers Association insist that Nnamdi Kanu must be produced in court come October 21, 2021. As our group will entertain no excuse for his unavailability in court on that very day. We caution security agents to respect the wishes of our people who are to sit at home on that day and nobody should be harm, arrested or molested.
“We emphasize that what the group is craving for is justice, and fair hearing for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his release from detention without further ado. Nnamdi kanu has not committed any offence known to law through his peaceful agitation. The Federal Government having failed woefully to engage them, proscribed the group and declared him wanted.
“Today, Northern elders have maintained serious influence and discrete bargain with the Federal Government to look into the demands of Bandits, Boko Haram and Monstrous Fulani Herdsmen and attention is discretely being given to their demands, but IPOB don’t deserve the mercy and attention of the Government, those effectively agitating/exercising their constitutional guarantee rights to self determination are being killed like flies by Nigeria Security Agents.
“We put the Government on notice that Igbo lawyers as a group will be sending delegates of senior lawyers in solidarity on that day. Our people want to see Mazi Nnamdi kanu hale and hearty on that very day and consequently regain his freedom which will help to end the rising tension in the south east”.
Igbo Lawyers Association said it will continue to fight for the justifiable cause of Igbo man anywhere in the country,” the group statement concluded.
