Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), a civil rights advocacy group, asked for a fair trial and justice for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the arrested leader of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
The group also urged the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to present Kanu in court for trial on October 21, 2021, if the AGF has no ulterior motive to cause the economic collapse of the southeast of Nigeria if the group follows through on her threat to call for a month of sit-at-home order.
HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yu, issued a joint statement.
It was stressed that the Federal Government, which is dominated by officials from the Moslem North and has shown open distrust and hatred for Igboland and the Igbo people, may instigate the Department of State Services (DSS), which is also dominated by officials from the Muslim North, to refuse to produce Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), before the Federal High Court in Abuja on the next adjour
Unless the government has a malicious motivation to precipiate, HURIWA said the jailed leader must be produced alive in court for trial by the Federal Attorney General.
