FG’s inability to obey extradition laws, act of terrorism – IPOB

From Stanley Uzoaru, Owerri

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described the Federal Government’s insistence on trying Nnamdi Kanu in the law courts without obeying the extradition treaties as laid down by international bodies as an act of terrorism.

Spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful, in a statement, yesterday, said the Federal Government ought to have obeyed the laws rather than subjecting him to the legal tussle.

Powerful also alleged the released CTC has buttressed the point that the treaties would not be obeyed.

He said: “The global family and movement of IPOB, led by Kanu understood the unlawfully withheld CTC in the case of Kanu, confirming that Nigeria will not obey its treaty obligations; these justices, the presidency and the Nigerian entity, are official terrorists, according to the laws of Nigeria.

“In this Act, ‘act of terrorism’ means an act willfully performed with the intention of furthering an ideology, whether political, religious, racial or ethnic, and which violates the provisions of any international treaty or resolution to which Nigeria is a party, subject to the provisions of Section12 of the 1999 Constitution.’ This, therefore, means the Federal Government’s refusal to obey extradition treaties and extraordinarily renditioned Kanu is an act of terrorism,” Powerful said.
