Effectively, Lawyer Ejimakor, I dare say, should actually imagine himself and his personal interpretation of the legislation. However Nnamdi Kanu will not be going to be launched even conditionally any time quickly. There is no such thing as a floor for that.
True, a excessive courtroom in Aba declared that Kanu didn’t soar bail and that his Basic Human Rights have been violated! That doesn’t imply the courtroom is true.
And talking of violation of human rights, I ponder what Kanu was doing denying your complete Igbo nation their freedom of speech, freedom of motion, freedom of affiliation, their proper to dwell freely and interact of their lawful financial actions and their proper to liberty and happiness.
Little question the Aba courtroom ruling have to be taken critically till quashed by a superior courtroom, which, for my part, it certainly will likely be. Whether or not the Aba decide actually listened to his reasoning and believed it or he simply made that ruling willy-nilly will not be one thing I’d speculate about. A studying of the judgement would present from the decide’s obiter dictum that the judgement could also be extra waffle than shuffle.
We should always wait to listen to what a courtroom exterior the IPOB killing zone of Igbo land says when the matter will get there. Till then it isn’t settled. What I don’t perceive nonetheless is why Lawyer Ejimakor retains dragging the worldwide neighborhood into Nigeria ‘s inner affairs. The worldwide neighborhood, which means ( the US who grabbed Hushpuppi, a non-citizen and a non-national from Dubai and took him earlier than a US home courtroom or is he speaking concerning the UN which is pre – occupied with interesting to killing zones like Ethiopia and others to take care of the peace and attempting to maintain NATO and Russia from going to conflict in Ukraine ) or is he speaking concerning the UK, Gabon, or Rwanda? If Kanu have been a Chinese language nationwide he would have been summarily executed for levying conflict towards his nation. Lawyer Ejimakor is aware of this.
He additionally certainly is aware of that Kanu will not be the enterprise of any nation besides Nigeria of which he’s a nationwide and a citizen and towards which Kanu is accused of committing critical crimes for which is he being prosecuted.
Lawyer Ejimakor is a seasoned lawyer and even when he likes to play to the IPOB gallery, he should know the way inviolable and reverent the sovereignty of a nation state is. He ought to know that very hardly ever has such sovereignty been violated . And I’m afraid to say that no nation state would lose sleep over how a sovereign state offers with certainly one of her nationals who clearly could be very harmful and is threatening to overthrow that nation violently.
However speak is affordable. Lawyer Ejimakor is free to proceed constructing his castles within the air. We’re all used to that. My concern is that he raises false hopes amongst a category of individuals in Igbo land which portends hazard to Nd’Igbo when such hopes inevitably fail to materialize. The resultant rage sends Igbos to their early graves.
I had dared to hope that with Mike Ozekhome on the scene the junior attorneys ought to solely be seen not heard. However up to now, just like the pocket warriors in Igbo land, these junior attorneys have confirmed to be uncontrolled.
