The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu's family member, Kanunta Kanu, has reacted to the ruling of the Abuja Appeal Court discharging and acquitting the pro-Biafra leader.
Kanu said there is jubilation even in the land of the dead over the court ruling that acquitted and discharged the agitator.
Yesterday, the Appeal Court discharged and acquitted Kanu of the terrorism charges levelled against him by the Nigerian Government.
A three-judge panel of the appellate court ruled that Kanu was illegally extracted from Kenya by Nigerian agents in a process known internationally as extraordinary rendition, which rights experts define as an abduction.
The judges held that the Nigerian Government could not charge Kanu for any offence in the country until federal authorities explained how they moved him from Nairobi to Abuja in June 2022.
Reacting, Kanu, in a series of tweets wrote: “#MaziNnamdiKanu has been discharged by the Court of Appeal, based on the Extra Ordinary rendition.
“Even in the land of the dead, there’s a jubilation going on there.”
“The Appeal Court further held that based on the Extra Ordinary Rendition, there was no charge against the Appellant #MaziNnamdiKanu .
“No court would have extradited #MNK. That was @GovNigeria therefore resorted to criminal activity. @UN @StateDept @EU_Commission @FCDOGovUK @BBC”
