There were wide jubilations by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over their leader’s victory on some charges levelled against by the federal government. The presiding Judge Justice Nyako of the federal High court dismissed the six of the 11 charges brought against Nnamdi Kalu after examining the case against him.
The continuing detention of Kalu was already turning to a national embarrassment among the Igbo leaders even some people within the south east and south south zones are already accusing some Igbo leaders of nonchalant attitude over the long detention of Kalu in Prison. Some of the people sees the move of the group as a ray of hope for the movement.
It would be recall that recently Nnamdi Kanu has been receiving visitors at Kuje prison including, Dr Chukwuma Soludo, Prof. Pat Utomi, Udenta Udenta and some others leaders from the south east who said they were getting worried over the case. The Igbo leaders had earlier called on the Federal government to release Kalu, who some sees as politically motivated.
However, Presiding judge Justice Binta Nyako said she took the decision to dismiss the six charges because the prosecutor did not present any evidence. Kanu would however be re-arraigned on a five-count charge of treasonable felony, she said.
