Asari Dokubo Reacts To Court Order On Nnamdi Kanu’s Discharge

Former militant leader, Asari Dokubo has faulted the judgement of the Court of Appeal which discharged the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Akelicious had earlier reported that a Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja last week Thursday, struck out charges levelled against him by the Federal Government.

The court ruled that the Federal Government breached all local and international laws in the forceful rendition of Kanu to Nigeria thereby making the terrorism charges against him incompetent and unlawful.

The presiding judge, Justice Oludotun Adebola, in his ruling voided and set aside the charges by the Federal Government against Kanu.

The court held that the failure of Nigeria to follow due process by way of Extradition was fatal to the charges against Kanu.

In a recent Facebook Live, Dokubo said the Appeal Court lacks the right to confiscate the original jurisdiction of a court of the first instance.

The former militant accused the judges of corruption and allegedly keying into the political solution request by Igbo leaders for the IPOB leader.

He said: “Anybody who has primary knowledge of the law will know that the Appeal Court judgement is a total Kangaroo court proceeding and it cannot stand the test of time anywhere in the world. And it has brought the Nigerian judiciary into ridicule.

“Can the court give what was not in front of her? Can the Appeal Court confiscate the original jurisdiction of the court of the first instance? These are primary procedural laws that anybody who has knowledge of law would know. I read law for five years.

“What the Appeal Court ought to have done is refer the case to the court of the first instance. You cannot take the jurisdiction of the court of the first instance.

“Nnamdi Kanu is a terrorist who was lawfully captured and brought back to Nigeria. He is responsible for the killing of many Nigerians.”
