Ohanaeze hails Court judgement awarding N1bn compensation to Nnamdi Kanu

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has described the High Court judgment which went in the favour of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as re-assuring.

This was contained in a statement issued on Thursday, January 20, by the Ohanaeze President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike who said the decision of the court showed that there was still hope in Nigeria.

1st News had reported that a High Court sitting in Abia State had awarded N1 billion against the Federal Government of Nigeria over the invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s country home.

According to Nnabuike, the court verdict came at a time when many people were no longer giving a chance to the judiciary.

“This judgement brings a sense of hope to all Nigerians. It is highly reassuring and commendable.

“It shows that we still have courageous members of the bench in Nigeria who are ready; to follow the law and apply it without pandering to the left or to the right.

“We have always said that the military invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home was uncalled for since his court case was upcoming before that incident.

“Our advice to the Government is to seek a political solution as suggested by the judge; because that is the only way out and if the government is sincere to restore peace; it should not shy away from it,” the Ohanaeze chieftain stated.

He, however, appealed to the members of the IPOB to maintain peace; and follow the rule of law in their search for justice.

“We have all seen that justice can still come by following legitimate means,” he noted.

Meanwhile, the Ohanaeze has condemned what it called a deliberate attempt to malign South-East Governors.

Okwu said this was evident in photo-shopped images currently in circulation on social media, displaying the governors on Biafra outfits.

According to him, “this is blackmail taken too far and it must stop. We know those behind this mischief; which is all about the 2023 presidency. We shall soon expose the sponsors and the promoters.”
