Biafra: Produce Nnamdi Kanu’s corpse – Brother tells Nigerian Army

Emmanuel, younger brother of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has asked the Nigerian Army to produce his corpse if he has been killed.

Kanu and his parents have gone missing, since the military raided their Afarakwu residence in Abia State on September 14.
Speaking on behalf of the family on Tuesday, Emmanuel said he strongly believes his brother fell into the hands of the troops..

“It is either they (soldiers) captured him or killed him when they attacked our house. If they captured him, they should release him to the police, and if they have killed him, they should produce the corpse because he was last seen moments before the raid,” he said.

However, the Army has denied keeping Kanu in its custody.

Kanu’s younger brother added that the family had been searching for the IPOB leader and his parents for two weeks without making any headway…

Biafra: How I will treat Nnamdi Kanu if I were president – Agbakoba

A former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is making the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu popular with his decision to send military forces after him.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lagos, Agbakoba faulted the military action against the agitators, saying it had complicated the issues.

He said were he the President, he would have engaged the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu and face the issues rather than “crushing” the group, which he said was “gaining international traction”.

To him, the agitation for true federalism and complaints about marginalisation went beyond IPOB.

The eminent lawyer said President Buhari cannot delegate the responsibility of leading the process of restructuring Nigeria.
He said the president would be forced to reconsider his position if all Nigerians, especially key Northern and Southern leaders, agreed on restructuring.

He said, “The president has delegated the responsibility to restructure Nigeria to the National Assembly and National Council of State..

“But, this responsibility cannot be delegated. Section 5 of the Constitution vests the President with executive powers of the federation and this includes the
power to restructure Nigeria.

“The way forward for Nigeria is for the citizens, in exercise of the power inherent in them as a sovereign people, to make, through a referendum, a new constitution, constituting a new political order.

“The process must be led by the President as the elected leader of the people,” he said.
Agbakoba said Nigeria was increasingly becoming a fragile state, with conflict and agitation everywhere, and most parts of the country feeling either marginalised or excluded, leading to calls for restructuring.

“The Orosanye committee reviewed 263 statutory agencies of government and asked government to scrap 102 agencies. Government should implement the Orasanye report immediately.

“Government should then focus on its core mandate, which is, policy, execution and regulation and stay completely away from business matters.

“This will empower a new set of economic actors (civil society and the private sector). This type of restructure is critical for economic development,” Agbakoba said.

“The president should initiate the restructuring project by providing context. Restructuring can be implemented by executive and administrative orders and also presenting the 2014 National Conference Report to the National Assembly.

“The 2014 National Conference Report actually examined and resolved a lot of the restructuring issues. So, we should start with the report,” he said. On former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s advise to Agbakoba to join politics, the former NBA president said: “When I met Obasanjo, I said: ‘Thanks for the reply, but know that to contest for a political office today requires all kinds of resources.

“There is no way that a young man can become Nigeria’s president if the obstacles that are on ground do not shift. Obasanjo has the capacity, in collaboration with others who should be concerned with bequeathing the legacy of a strong Nigeria. If they part the red sea, people like us will cross it.”

“He never evaded trial as he made it known that he was ready. If he wanted to jump bail, he would have done so immediately he was released from prison. But he did not run.

“The last time I spoke with my client was the day his house was invaded by soldiers. He called me and complained that he was being attacked by soldiers who he said were shooting sporadically. Since then, I have not heard from my client again.

“If he is alive, they should tell the court on that day. They will not only explain to the trial court, but will also produce the soldiers that went to his home to attack him”.
