“I will not beg FG for my release” – Nnamdi Kanu vows

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has told the federal government that he would never beg for his freedom after being cleared by Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Naija Latest Gist reports that the IPOB leader, in a letter dated August 25, 2023, and signed by his lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, said begging for his freedom at this point would be an insult to the memory of the late Pa Mbazulike Amechi, who had in his old age repeatedly travelled from the South-East to Abuja, to beg the federal government for his release as a dying wish— a wish the government never fulfilled.

Kanu, in the letter titled “Update on our routine visit to our indefatigable client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, at the Headquarters of the State Security Services, Abuja, where he is still being illegally and unconstitutionally detained in solitary confinement,” noted that he won’t beg the federal government because the Appeal Court has already made a pronouncement and it’s still sacrosanct.

He said, “Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu used the opportunity offered by the visit to extend his heartfelt gratitude to all people of good conscience and groups calling for his release. He, however, observed that many people may not have understood the peculiarity of his case but proceeded to urge us to clarify that he has been effectively and validly discharged by the judgment of the Court of Appeal, delivered October 13, 2022, which said judgment also prohibited his further trial and detention. Therefore, there is no charge pending against Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before any court as of today.

“Furthermore, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unequivocally stated that begging the Federal Government to release him at this point is an insult to the memory of late Pa Mbazulike Amaechi, who, despite his age and ill health, repeatedly travelled from the South-East to Abuja, begging the Federal Government of Nigeria, to honour his dying wish, which request was treated with greatest disdain by the Federal Government, and was also not honoured.

“Thus, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is of the firm view that he does not need to beg the FGN to release him. The Court of Appeal has already made a pronouncement in that regard, and that pronouncement has remained sacrosanct till date.

“Therefore, the call every person of goodwill should make in the circumstance of his continued illegal detention is for the Supreme Court to set down a date for the expeditious hearing of the appeal filed by the Federal Government, as provided for in the Criminal Appeals Practice Directions of the Supreme Court.

“We visited our indefatigable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, today, the 28th day of August 2023, to brief him on the various intervening actions taken by the legal team ably led by Prof. Mike Ozekhome, SAN, to address pertinent concerns affecting his welfare and failure of the SSS to avail him of his medical records.

“To this end, an application has been made to the Honourable Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory by our erudite Lead Counsel – Prof. Mike Ozekhome SAN, to appoint a Magistrate that will visit and inspect the SSS facility/cell where Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been held in solitary confinement since June 2021 till date, in pursuance to the relevant provisions of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.

“Following the SSS refusal to avail Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with his medical records, as directed by Hon. Justice Binta Nyako, in the judgment delivered on July 20, 2023, our erudite lead counsel, Prof. Mike Ozekhome, SAN, was compelled by this brazen disregard to an order of Court by the SSS, to initiate a contempt proceeding against the State Security Service and her Director General, for this gross violation of positive Orders of Court.”

Hajj pilgrims trying to smuggle drug into Saudi 696x348 1

Four intending hajj pilgrims have been arrested by the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) while trying to smuggle cocaine to Saudi Arabia.

The suspects lodged at Emerald Hotel in the Ladipo area of Oshodi, Lagos State, were caught ingesting wraps of cocaine ahead of their flight to the holy land on Wednesday, June 5, 2024.

The four suspects were identified as Usman Kamorudeen, 31; Olasunkanmi Owolabi, 46; Fatai Yekini, 38; and Ayinla Kemi, 34.

“The suspects were lodged in two rooms in the hotel, preparing 200 pellets of cocaine weighing 2.20 kilograms to swallow when NDLEA officers stormed their rooms. One hundred wraps of the Class A substance were recovered from each room, making a total seizure of 200 wraps. Two suspects were set to swallow 100 wraps each,” NDLEA stated.

Brig Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the NDLEA, commended the Commander, officers, and men of the Lagos State Command of the NDLEA for conducting the operation.

He emphasized that the agency will continue to extend its efforts to track, trace, and apprehend criminal elements attempting to use the pilgrimage to carry out illegal activities that could tarnish the country’s image.

The NDLEA chief also stated that the agency would collaborate with their counterparts in Saudi Arabia to ensure that the designated recipients of the seized illicit drug consignments in Saudi Arabia are also traced and dealt with accordingly.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Health has approved the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) to operate two main clinics for Nigerian pilgrims in Makkah.

The Executive Chairman of NAHCON, Malam Jalal Arabi, made this known in a statement by the commission’s Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Mrs Fatima Sanda-Usara, on Sunday in Abuja.

Arabi said the approval letter was received by Dr Abubakar Isma’eel, NAHCON’s Head of Medical Mission for the 2024 Hajj Season.

“The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is happy to announce that it has received approval to operate two main clinics in Makkah in the meantime.

“The Saudi Ministry of Health revealed this development through its medical consultants attached to Ithra Alkhair Company, NAHCON’s chosen service providers, otherwise known as Mu’assasa. The two main clinics are those located at Masfala/Kudai and Shari’e Al-Mansour areas. They serve as the medical head offices,” he said.

Arabi also said that approval to start running three other outpost clinics (Triage Outposts 1, 2, and 3) was still awaited.

“Dr A-Isma’eel expressed optimism that within the next 48–72 hours, the three outposts would also receive full approval to operate optimally. The proposed outposts are located at Nasarawa, Ogun/Oyo, and Borno pilgrim houses in Makkah, respectively,” the chairman explained.

He said that the GPS of the outpost locations would be made available to the Nigerian pilgrims within hours of approval.

“It should be noted that the outposts are strategically situated within pilgrims’ hotel clusters to aid accessibility,” he noted.
