Binta Nyako, Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB, Nigeria, Biafra
The 20th of March 2017 is a historical violation day in the Nigeria judicial system as was committed by justice Binta Murtala Nyako of the federal high court Abuja during her ruling to allow masked witnesses in trial of the leader of the the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB Mazi Nnamdi Kanu under sharia law. In this contest, I would want to vividly outline the catastrophe of that Binta Murtala Nyako has introduced in the said trial noting the personalities involved in the the trial, first of all, what is sharia law? It is the law that guides all the Muslim faithful together as such is only detrimental to the Muslim faithful alone. Having known from onset that Nnamdi Kanu and his co defendants are not and can never be Muslims, why should Binta Murtala Nyako commit such judicial blunder by saying that Nnamdi Kanu and his co defendants will be tried under the principles of sharia law as she re invoke the secret trial which she had laid to rest earlier in her judgement of January 2017 and urging the defense council of the IPOB leader to go and acquire knowledge of sharia law.
In a country of multi religious beliefs, how could one be subjected under the law that his faith forbids? Is it not slavery? This is one of the things that Nnamdi Kanu have ever lamented about, that we are not one with the northerners and can never be seen as one by them. There is never a way that oil and water can mix together irrespective of how you try to mix them together.
Nigeria and Nigerians have to stand tall to see that this kind of tactical islamization experiment is not carried out against the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as promised by Buhari in his speech delivered at a seminar organized by the Supreme Council of Sharia in Nigeria (SCSN) in August 2001 which he stated thus "I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment of Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria...... God willing, we will not stop the total agitation for the total implementation of Sharia in the country" because justice for one is justice for all.
It is high time the world make comment openly as regards the shady process that Nigeria government is applying in the issues of Biafrans and her leader Nnamdi Kanu having confirmed most of his statements which he made during his several broadcasts in Radio Biafra especially the reference he made tagging Nigeria an Islamic country which Binta Murtala Nyako has vindicated him in her 20th march ruling.
IPOB is solely into the freedom of the subjugated people irrespective of your religion, ethnicity or location especially as caused by the colonial masters, this act is plainly shown by the leader of IPOB as he stands in the gap between the Nigerian secret agents, the DSS and five Hausa Fulani boys who has been in detention for five years without trial yet the world is keeping mute in intervening in these gross human rights violations that has eaten deep in Nigeria.
The world should come out from their shell to make the world a better place to live in by speaking up and implementing their agreed UN charter on the right of the indigenous people by so doing, history shall record equity for all not just for whites alone.
