The younger brother to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu; the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Prince Emma Kanu had reacted to the absence of the Federal High Court judge yesterday saying that it was spirits of dead innocent Biafrans that are currently chasing the judge away.
“The judge can run but can’t hide. He only ran out from his court; his office. I can tell you that he is just starting. Very soon, they will all be running out from their homes and families. They will continue to be chased around by spirits of innocent Biafrans whose blood they have been shedding via their wicked actions. They will never find peace until they let Biafrans have their freedom”, he told gregnwadikeblog.com.
This was as attempt by the group to challenge the federal government’s court order which designated it as a terrorist organization suffered a setback following the absence of the judge who was supposed to preside over the matter.
Reacting to the absence of Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court, the pro-Biafra group accused the federal government of ordering the judge to stay away from the court, This Day reports. The spokesperson for the group, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Monday, October 23, said the absence of the defendants, including the presiding judge from the same court where they had obtained an exparte order, branding it as a terrorist organization was worrisome.
He said: “It took the Attorney General of Nigeria, Chief of Defence Staff, Nigerian Army, South-east governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo less than 30 minutes to obtain their black market ex-parte order proscribing and designating IPOB a terror group. “Today at the same Federal High Court Abuja, the same judge in the person Justice Kafarati has run away from hearing the case he himself fixed for hearing this morning, knowing full well the world is waiting for the outcome of his considered judgment given that he now has the opportunity to hear from both parties.”
