Nigerian Civil War veteran and former Captain of the Nigerian Army, Ahmed Adoke, has charged the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to hasten the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The PUNCH reports that Adoke, in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday, claimed that the Kanu-led IPOB has caused more deaths and untold hardship to the Igbo people it claims to represents.
He said, “On Tuesday June 29, 2021, Nigerians woke up to the news culminating from the press release of the Attorney General of the Federation that the leader of self-proclaimed Indigenous People of Biafra has been re-arrested.
“That news, filtering with awe and apprehension, did not only restore calm and hope to the dozens of families who have lost their loved ones due to the atrocities of IPOB, but also came with pride and eulogy for Nigeria’s secret police for their excellent job in ensuring that Nnamdi Kanu is apprehended abroad so as to face justice at home!
“Let truth be told, ever since its creation in 2014, the atrocities of the IPOB Movement have caused more deaths, economic hardships, and infrastructural losses to the people they claim to represent than ever before.
“The resultant consequence of their inactions led the Federal Government of Nigeria to proscribe the group and labelled it a terrorist organisation.
“Having jumped bail in 2017, Nnamdi Kanu had ample time and opportunities to retrace his steps.
“Rather than do so, he outrightly militarized his loyalists and continued to incite them towards violent insurrections and killings across South-Eastern Nigeria.
“Now that the goose is finally at hand, I am confident that the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami SAN, in his quest for rule of law, would ensure that speedy justice is done in the trial of Kanu.”
Adoke reminisced that people who fought the Nigeria civil war would never wish Civil War for their children or generations to come.
He claimed that he was happy that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has proven that he has always been true to his pronouncements and actions.
He added, “President Buhari has ever been an introvert of slow and steady nature that wins the race. I also commend the Nigerian security agents who covertly participated in the re-arrest of Kanu.
“There is nothing the Nigeria security agents want to do that fails given the rightful logistics.
“Therefore, it is high time the Nigerian State took bold steps towards restoring the dignity, indivisibility and sovereignty of our beloved Country.
“Indeed, our unity is divine and we must not allow those who feign ignorance of the sacrifices of our heroes past to succeed in their aspirations of destroying what we have shared collectively.”
