IPOB: Nigerian Govt On The Run, Failed To Appear Before ECOWAS Court

The case between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Nigerian government was scheduled to be heard yesterday being Tuesday 10th October 2017.

The atmosphere changed when the council for the federal government of Nigeria told ECOWAS court that their lead counsel won't be able to make it the day's ruling. He told the court that the lead counsel went to see the vice president, Prof Yemi Osibanjo.

In contrary, the counsel to IPOB argued that there's no basis for the adjournment. Kanu's lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor submitted that the government was stalling the case. He made application for the condition of adjournment which would attract 2million Naira per adjournment.

However, the court adjourned the case till 21st Nov 2017. The court insisted that this new date would be the last adjournment for the case and will consider the application for 2million per adjustment prayed by Ejiofor.

Recall that the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice sitting in Abuja on 18th of May adjourned the date of hearing on the matter till 10th October, 2017.

It is quite unfortunate how Nigerian government has disgraced itself at West African regional court. The government is running away from her shadow, she is guilty of a crime against human rights and is trying to evade justice.

They can delay justice but can not jump justice. As they (federal government's legal team) requested for a copy of the last ruling, it is predictable that they may come up with something funny on the next adjourned date but then Ejiofor is ready to challenge them to any extent.

Nigerian government may have the military, police and other killer squads but Biafrans will win this war without responding to their already fired bullets.
