See What Asari Dokubo Said After Court Discharged Nnamdi Kanu

Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader, has criticized the Court of Appeal’s decision to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the illegal Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), from his obligations.

Anaedoonline.ng had previously reported that charges brought against him by the Federal Government were dismissed by a Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Thursday of last week.

The Federal Government’s rendition of Kanu to Nigeria under duress violated all national and international laws, the court decided, rendering the terrorism charges against him inadmissible and illegal.

In his decision, Justice Oludotun Adebola, the presiding judge, threw out and disregarded the allegations made by the Federal Government against Kanu.

The court determined that Nigeria’s inability to fulfill the rules of extradition was fatal to the charges against Kanu.

Dokubo said recently during a Facebook Live that the Appeal Court does not have the authority to take away a court of first instance’s original jurisdiction.

The former militant charged the judges with corruption and claimed they were aware of the IPOB leader’s appeal for a political solution from Igbo leaders.

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.”
