Mr.BUHARI, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT SELF-DETERMINATION IS NOWHERE SIMILAR WITH TREASON.

Buhari The "ILLITRATE" in charge of the zoo, called Nigeria, has no clue about the charge he leveled against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra and Director of Radio Biafra/Tv, which he called treasonable felony,Even without being told, this is the greatest illiterate that has ever lived on this planet earth.


He knew nothing about the charge he brought upon my educated wizard mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has really shown the world the bite of honestly, resolution, incorruptible, faithful and whiter than white and whiter than snow. Century illustration of Guy Fawkes .Guy Fawkes tried to assassinate James I of England . He failed and was convicted of treason and sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered.

In law , treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's nation or sovereign .


[1] Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife or that of a master by his servant. Treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petty treason . A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor


Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as "...[a]... citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]. " In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor



Outside legal spheres, the word " traitor" may also be used to describe a person who betrays (or is accused of betraying) his own political party, nation , family, friends, ethnic group , team , religion, social class , or other group to which he may belong. Often, such accusations are controversial and disputed, as the person may not identify with the

group of which he is a member, or may otherwise disagree with the group members making the charge. See, for example, race traitor , often used by White supremacists , or Black supremacists , or directed at people in interracial relationships (cf. miscegenation).

At times, the term "traitor" has been used as a political epithet , regardless of any verifiable treasonable action.


In a civil war or insurrection, the winners may deem the losers to be traitors. Likewise the term "traitor" is used in heated political discussion – typically as a slur against political dissidents , or against officials in power who are perceived as failing to act in the best interest of their constituents. In certain cases, as with the German Dolchstoßlegende, the accusation of treason towards a large group of people can be a unifying political message. Treason is considered to be different and on many occasions a separate charge from 'Treasonable Felony' in many parts of the world.


“Treasonable felony” is a uniquely Nigerian English expression that also occasionally appears in Ghanaian English. No other variety of English in the world uses the expression. A check on the Corpus of Global Web-Based English confirms this. Of the 52 matches that appeared on the corpus, 43 showed up in Nigerian English and 9 in Ghanaian English.
There was no record for the expression in all other English varieties the corpus indexes.

In Standard English, “treason” means the crime of wanting to overthrow a legitimately
constituted government through violent, unconstitutional means. Felony, on the other hand, means any serious crime, such as murder, arson, treason, etc. In American law, it is customary to classify crimes as either felonies (which typically attract harsh punishments like the death sentence, life imprisonment, or prison sentences lasting more than a year) or misdemeanors (which are minor offenses that are punished with fines or prison sentences that last a year or less). In other words, “treasonable felony” would be considered needless verbosity in native English varieties since “treason” is itself a felony.


But Nigerian law differentiates between “treason” and “treasonable felony.” According to section 37(1) of the Criminal Code Act, “treason” occurs when someone actually wages a war, or conspires with any person to wage a war, against the country “in order intimidate or overawe the president or the governor of a state,” and it is punishable by death. “Treasonable felony,” on the other hand, Section 41 of the Criminal Code tells us, is an “intention” to commit treason.


That distinction makes no logical or grammatical sense, but it has been in Nigerian law books for as long as Nigeria has existed.

Now be the judge, Nnamdi Kanu has never asked for any political position, he has no interest in Nigeria, all he wants is what belongs to Biafra, not Nigeria property, or any other country property.
