We’ve filed application against Nnamdi Kanu’s continued detention – Lawyer

The legal tussle over the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, is about to take another turn, as Kanu’s lawyers have filed an application the enforcement of Nnamdi Kanu’s ‘fundamental rights to liberty and freedom of movement’, to compel the Federal Government to release the IPOB leader.

Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, disclosed this in a statement he issued on Monday after the stay of execution hearing filed by FG over an initial Court of Appeals judgement that ordered the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

According to Ejiofor, the purpose of their application is to put an end to the Federal Government of Nigeria’s continued gross violation of Nnamdi Kanu’s rights by refusing to obey the Court of Appeal’s order that discharged the IPOB on October 13, 2022.

The statement read in part, “The Federal Government’s application for stay of execution which is not only grossly incompetent but also a grave affront to the sanctity of the Orders of the Court of Appeal, which decision of the same court they are now seeking equitable remedy to be stayed by the same court.

“Orders of the Court must be obeyed and its sanctity must be respected by the federal government of Nigeria. He who goes to equity must go with clean hands.

“It’s trite and as rightly submitted by the Learned erudite Silk- Chief Ozekhome SAN, that there is no Res to be stayed in the present case and Orders of the court cannot be made to stay the constitutionally guaranteed rights of a citizen.

“The only available option for the Federal Government in the circumstance of this case is to kindly obey the Order made by the Court of Appeal, and consequently allow ONYENDU Mazi Nnamdi KANU to go home as ordered by Court of Appeal.

“I want to emphasize once again that the erudite judgment of the Court of Appeal on Onyendu’s case has gripped the Federal Government like an irreversible rigor mortis. It has held them in a vice-like grip. There is no chance of extrication whatsoever.

“In conclusion, we are very certain of victory once again, because ChukwuOkike Abiama is always on the throne.

“Ruling on the Argument canvassed today has been reserved to a date to be communicated to the parties.

“However, we have in addition, filed an application for the enforcement of ONYENDU’s fundamental rights to liberty and freedom of movement, which are now being grossly violated by the Federal Government of Nigeria, for refusing to obey the order of the Court of Appeal which discharged ONYENDU since the 13th day of October, 2022.

“As it stands today, there is no order of court sanctioning ONYENDU’s detention since the 13th day of October, 2022, he was freed. He is being illegally and unlawfully held in the custody of the State security Services since the 13th day of October, 2022
