Defiant Nnamdi Kanu Boldly Faces Trial After Supreme Court Verdict   

....ESN Warns Vigilantes 


In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s ruling ordering Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to face trial on terrorism charges, Kanu remains resolute, expressing determination not to be broken by the legal battle.

Kanu, who has been detained for over two years at the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, addressed the recent Supreme Court decision through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor. In a statement released in Owerri, Kanu’s lawyer expressed confidence in their legal position, indicating optimism about a favorable outcome in the trial.

In response to the verdict, Kanu conveyed reservations about the Supreme Court’s decision, citing sections of the Nigerian constitution to articulate his concerns.

“The eventual verdict of the Supreme Court was conveyed to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and he expressed reservations on the outcome. 

“However, Onyendu elected to accept this outcome because of the finality of the Supreme Court decisions, and not because they are infallible. 

“Nevertheless, in accepting this verdict, Onyendu specifically requested that the following compelling questions be put out publicly to the discerning members of the public, who are keenly following the trajectory of this case: to wit: 

“Did the decision of the Supreme Court, which substantially sanctioned the Federal Government’s illegal  act of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s abduction and extraordinary rendition to Nigeria, effectively repeal the following Nigerian laws, which were all cited in our brief before the Supreme Court? 

“Onyendu once again thanked Ezigbo UmuChineke for your prayers and love, even as he encouraged all to remain focused and keep their eyes on the ball.

“Onyendu enjoined his followers to continue to conduct themselves peacefully as they have always done.” 

The leader of IPOB appears undeterred, vowing to face the terrorism allegations with resolve.

Simultaneously, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the militia arm of IPOB, marked its third anniversary by issuing a stern warning to herdsmen, thugs, and vigilante outfits operating in the South-East region.

The ESN also directed a cautionary message to the Anambra Vigilante Group (AVG), urging them to cease the alleged abduction of individuals in the state.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, echoed these sentiments, calling for the disbandment of all political thugs and vigilante groups, including the recently established Ebubeagu militia by South-East governors. The group’s statement demanded the evacuation of government-sponsored criminals, car-snatching gangs, kidnappers, and rapists from their camps in Imo and Anambra States.

Parts of the statement read:

“The Fulani herdsmen and their Miyetti Allah sponsors parading around Abia, Akwa Ibom and Igweocha, Anambra, Delta, Enugu, and Ebonyi axes especially at the Lokpanta area must be stopped. 

“They are now involved in highway robbery and kidnapping. Most of the highway robberies and kidnaps along the Enugu-Umuahia-Aba- Port Harcourt Expressway were carried out by these Fulani bandits. Lokpanta Cattle Market is the main hideout of these Fulani bandits. 

“This warning also goes to the Anambra Vigilante Group, AVG, who have left their primary responsibility of securing Anambra State but have taken to crime and illegal abduction and murdering of IPOB members in Anambra State. If you do not stop your murderous actions, we will have no choice but to confront you. 

“All political thugs and illegal security outfits formed to go after Biafrans must be disbanded with immediate effect. Ebubeagu militia in Imo State must be disbanded now. 

“This Ebubeagu was responsible for the mass killing and burning of innocent people’s houses within Biafraland, especially in Imo State. 

“All the government-sponsored criminals, cannibals, car snatching gangs, kidnappers, and rapists operating in Imo and Anambra States are hereby given marching orders to vacate their camps in the Eastern Region as soon as possible. 

“All the traditional rulers and politicians who are seriously facilitating the resettlement of Fulani herdsmen in our communities should be ready for us.

“Come next year, we shall forcefully impose harsh punishment on those conniving with Fulani herdsmen and enemies of our land to occupy our ancestral land.”
