The end may not have been heard about the ongoing jubilation that ensued in South Eastern part of nigeria after the Appeal court release and acquittal of the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB as yet to be identified young man has set his vehicle ablaze in Enugu in celebration of the release.
WITHIN NIGERIA source revealed that the young man whose identity is yet to be determined at the press time has consistently told his friends and indeed any person who cared to listen that any day the leader of IPOB regained freedom, he will burn his vehicle to celebrate the release.
Explaining further, our source stated that “to fulfil his promise, around 7pm on Thursday after the court judgement, this young man drove his vehicle to the centre of main road, at Holy Ghost park, opposite Onitsha south local government mass transit and set it ablaze.”
Asked how people were reacting, our source explained that ” initially people were shouting and asking for help, pouring water to quench it but when the owner came out and told them that he did it to protest the release of Nnamdi Kanu, they couldn’t empathize with him again.”
Recall that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory on Thursday upheld the appeal of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The court also discharged and acquitted the embattled leader of the self determination group.
Kanu had in his appeal dated April 29 and marked CA/ABJ/CR/625/2022 applied to be discharged and acquitted.
Kanu was first arraigned on December 23, 2015, and was later granted bail on April 25, 2017.
However, the Court of Appeal on Thursday declared as illegal and unlawful, the abduction Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria and quashed the entire terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government.
The Appellate Court held 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 Appeal Court in a judgment by Justice Oludotun Adebola voided and set aside the charges by the Federal Government against Kanu.
The Appellate Court proceeded to discharge Kanu from the alleged offences.
