IPOB says Kanu’s case file disappears from Appeals Court



The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) alleges that the case file of its leader, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has disappeared from the Appeals Court.

The group said the news of the disappearance of the file is a mockery of the Nigerian judicial system. As a result, IPOB urged the Chief Judge of the federation to rise up and address the lack of integrity in the Nigerian judicial process.

This development was disclosed to the media through a statement signed by its spokesperson, Mr Emma Powerful. His words,

“Court of Appeal judges today sitting in Abuja has declared the file of the leader of IPOB missing/misplaced. It is unheard of in the history of Nigerian judiciary that a matter coming up for final judgment almost a year after the appellate court jury adjourned it having heard all the arguments would go missing.

“Not only is the delay by the Appeal Court illegal and unconstitutional, the conduct of those that heard and handled this very case is troubling. We no longer know what to make of the Nigerian Judicial system. This is beyond a joke.”

“The only thing missing from today’s court hearing is the proverbial snake because it wasn’t confirmed if the case file had been swallowed by yet another snake at the Appeal Court.

“We are drawing the attention of the civilised world to the mess the Nigerian judiciary, terrorised by a brutal dictatorial regime has turned into.

“Instead of delivering judgement for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the judiciary would rather break every constitutional provision guiding the time line in cases at the Appeal Court.”‎

With regards, to the judicial proceedings, the group laments the pace of the judicial process:

“It is up to a year without any judgement on this matter contrary to constitutional provision.

“We call on the Chief Justice of the Federation to step into this matter before the already tarnished image of the judiciary suffers even more before the eyes of the world."
