                                      Biafra: Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Has No Case

Circumstances Abound proves it After a critical evaluation of the case between Nnamdi Kanu and the Buhari-led federal government, one can infer that Nnamdi Kanu has no case to answer as he is morally and legally justified. Furthermore, the government is bent on keeping Mazi Kanu using judicial delay tactics. 

The continuous amendment of his charges by the prosecuting counsel is risible and shows they're bereft of ideas, and lack the legal ability and evidence to prove beyond all reasonable doubt before their court that Kanu committed the alleged crime(s), thus they have resorted to judiciary delay tactics. 

I wish to remind the world that it's said that justice delayed is equal to justice denied. Therefore, I implore her lordship justice Binta Nyako to hasten Kanu's trial to ensure justice. Not only that, she should ensure to put sentiment aside and deliver justice without pressure based on facts and evidence on the ground as Kanu has no case to answer. I commend her ruling on 18th May 2022 in which she ruled that she can't proceed with the bail application unless the situation (s) surrounding Kanu's absence during his former trial is revisited. 

Once again, it is a good development and I commend it because no stone should be left unturned in a bid to ensure justice for the grievous Injustice meted on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whose inalienable rights had been severally trampled upon. The circumstances surrounding Nnamdi Kanu's absence from his former trial are not something that should take the court two minutes to revisit. 

It's visible to the blind and audible to the deaf. However, when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail on April 25th, 2017, He said severally that he is ready to appear before the court for Continuation of his trial. On 17th Sept 2017, the federal government sent heavily armed troops to invade his house in a murderous invasion. Moreso, Kanu was granted what could best be described as a constitutional bail, because his bail conditions are his constitutional rights. Since he's yet to be convicted, he reserves the right to enjoy his constitutional rights. An accused has a right. 

The claim or argument that he jumped bail is fallacious. Let's consider the circumstances surrounding the whole issue which led to his absence. His house was invaded in a murderous raid which left 28 People dead including Nnamdi Kanu's cousin Adaku and his Dog Jack. Now, if Nnamdi Kanu was killed as they planned will they be trying him in court today? It would have been a different case altogether. 

The government which happens to be the prosecutor sent troops that invaded his house in a murderous raid, out of Providence he escaped the assassination attempt, and some people are making arguments about jumping bail. It's not reasonable in its entirety. Nnamdi Kanu is learned and a man who believes in the judicial process, If he is guilty as charged or the government are convinced and has evidence to present before the court that Kanu is guilty of the crime he had been indicted of and has been constantly maligned in the open, why didn't they allow the court to proceed with the case and certainly, pronounce judgment. 

The circumstances surrounding Kanu's disappearance are clear, he escaped an assassination attempt which led to the death of many in his country home Afara Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia Abia state. Therefore, I request the court hasten up to bring the murderers who invaded his house to book and subsequently grant Nnamdi Kanu unconditional bail as he has no case to answer. 

It is equally noteworthy that the Court should in her wisdom understand that stringent bail conditions are equal injustice.
