IPOB rejects the Supreme Court’s ruling on Nnamdi Kanu and alleges that Tinubu is scheming to oppress the Igbo people.


The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) strongly criticizes the Nigerian Supreme Court, accusing it of failing to deliver impartial justice amid the nation’s complex challenges. Additionally, the group alleges that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is plotting to suppress the Igbo people in Nigeria.

The criticism arises in response to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling upholding the detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB. In a forceful statement, IPOB spokesperson Emma Powerful denounces the court’s decision, highlighting its perceived inability to provide fair judgments in the current state of Nigeria’s multifaceted issues.

Emma Powerful asserts that the Supreme Court’s ruling exposes its limited capacity, drawing attention from Biafrans globally. The statement implies that IPOB closely monitors the situation in Nigeria, expressing deep concern about the handling of this sensitive case by the judicial system.

IPOB questions the Supreme Court’s endorsement of international kidnapping and extraordinary rendition in Kanu’s case, challenging the court’s alignment with international laws. The group warns the international community that if there is any breakdown of order in Nigeria during this period, the responsibility should lie with the Supreme Court Justices, whom IPOB accuses of becoming tools of oppression.

Additionally, IPOB accuses President Bola Tinubu of pursuing an ethnic agenda against the Igbo people. The Supreme Court’s ruling, delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim and written by Justice Garba Lawal, overturns the earlier decision of the Court of Appeal, which had discharged and acquitted Kanu of terrorism charges in October 2022.

The Supreme Court’s decision orders Kanu’s return to the Federal High Court in Abuja to face a revised 7-count charge of terrorism. The statement outlines the arguments presented during the proceedings, with Kanu’s lawyer seeking his immediate release and substantial compensation, while the government’s counsel urges the court to dismiss Kanu’s cross-appeal and resume his trial on terrorism charges.

Kanu’s arrest in 2015, subsequent escape in 2017, and extradition in 2021 are recounted, along with the Court of Appeal’s earlier order for his release, citing irregularities in his extradition. However, the recent Supreme Court ruling has reversed this decision, keeping Kanu in custody amid ongoing legal battles and tensions surrounding IPOB’s activities.
