BIAFRA: REPAYING ME WITH DEATH THREAT IS THE HEIGHT OF INGRATITUDE BY THE KANUs



An Abuja-based Anambra born Lawyer and former Counsel to the Leader of IPOB worldwide, has called on Ndigbo Worldwide to judge between himself and the family of Nnamdi Kanu whether he deserves the death threat issued to him by Prince Kanu [Fineboy] against the background of gargantuan  sacrifices he made in the legal battlefield for the release of NNAMDI KANU at a time when even the highest political office holders from the South-East could not raise a finger or voice in seeking the release of the IPOB Leader. This is contained in the Press Release he issued wherein he lined up the links to different websites where he published the letters he wrote to different authorities for them to obey the Order of Court granting bail to the IPOB Leader even at a huge risk to his personal safety. The Lawyer wondered whether it has become a new norm in Biafraland for grave sacrifices to be rewarded with such confounding ingratitude as to the threatening of his life. Below is the full Release of the Lawyer:

                                    -------- BEFORE THE KANUs KILL ME-------------
Since the the year 2015, NNAMDI KANU was arrested and kept in detention, I have been at the forefront of his release. Before lending the weight of my legal profession to seek his release, I have NEVER met him in person, he too has never seen me. Out of my sheer abhorrence for injustice and oppression, I robustly rose to his defence. Without any legal fees or any briefing, I put up appearance for his defence specifically on the 17th day of December, 2015 and to the glory of God Almighty, that was the very day the Honourable Justice A.F.A Ademola granted him bail. The records of the proceedings of the Court for that day is still there to vindicate this. Video evidence equally abounds.
Yet after that, without any legal consultation [but solely moved by the desire to challenge impunity and disregard for the rule of law by the Government of Nigeria], I wrote series of open letters addressed to the authorities including;
1. The then National President of the Nigerian Bar Association of Nigeria [NBA], Mr. Augustine Alegeh, S.A.N
2. The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress [APC], Chief John Oyegun.
3. I wrote to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammed Buhari, GCFR
4. The Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation
In all of these writings [at a great RISK to my personal life], I was not briefed by Kanu but because I believe he was being unfairly treated by the refusal of the Government of the day to obey Court orders granting him bail. Indeed, this is quite apart from the numerous legal articles I have contributed to call the attention of the government to the plight of detained NNAMDI KANU.
For history/record purposes, I will re-produce hereunder the links to the websites where these writings were published. I undertook this life-threatening task at a time when even the highest political office holders from the entire South-East Nigeria could not raise a finger or a voice in seeking Kanu's release. I undertook these dangerous tasks when I was BARELY ONE year at the Nigerian Bar as a Lawyer.
My people, what WRONG then have I done to the NNAMDI KANU's FAMILY that I should deserve to die? Is that how to repay this unparalleled kindness, gargantuan sacrifices, and unremitting commitment? Is that how a supposed leader is to treat his subjects? Is that how a supposed leader is to reward diligence and sacrifices? When has INGRATITUDE AND WICKEDNESS become the reward for sacrifices even to the point of threatening to kill me merely because I expressed a dissenting view on the holding of election in Anambra State [my home State] in November, 2017? What is wrong in a Lawyer holding an opposing view and expressing his mind? Was it not the opposing views I held against the position of the Federal Government of Nigeria that made me to rise to NNAMDI KANU'S defence at a time when nobody was willing to thread that lonely path?
The world [especially the Ndigbo Worldwide] is hereby summoned to judge between myself and the Family of the Kanus. PRINCE KANU [Fineboy] should tell the world how and WHY I deserve death after seeing to the release of his brother and Leader of IPOB.
Thank you everyone.
