Filing fresh charges against Nnamdi Kanu not in Nigeria’s interest – LawyerAn Abuja-based human rights lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, says the Federal Government is not acting in the good interest of Nigeria by filing fresh terrorism charges against the embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu. Who said so, he should be punished accordingly. Buhari is the person that suppose to be standing trial. This man lost election in 2011 and in reaction to the loss made his supporters to kill many southern corpers in the north. This same man invited the Fulanis from outside to cause mayhem if GEJ refuse to quit This is a typical example of how country without solution behaves. You leave the positive information given by nnamdi and be attacking him. Is quit unfortunate we have gotten to this level of so called democracy

PREMIUM TIMES reported that there were indications that the residents of the region might be forced to observe a four-day lockdown from Monday following Kanu’s resumed treason trial. On Monday, many residents of the five states in the region – Enugu, Anambra, Ebonyi, Abia and Imo – complied with the controversial sit-at-home as roads were deserted. IPOB, an outlawed group leading the agitation for the creation of an independent state, Biafra, from Nigeria’s South-east and part of South-south, had suspended its earlier Monday’s sit-at-home order, in preference for it (the order) to be implemented only on the days Mr Kanu appear in court. Many banks and filling stations did not also open for business. Recall that the Federal Government had filed fresh terrorism charges against the IPOB leader yesterday. The Nation newspaper had reported on Monday that masked gunmen suspected to be members of IPOB, attacked Obollo-Afor town in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria’s South-east, and dispersed residents who opened their shops for business. The court, in November, adjourned the trial of Mr Kanu to January after Mr Kanu’s lawyers staged a walk-out. They also burnt a tricycle of a resident and a Sienna vehicle belonging to a vigilante group, Udenu Central Neighbourhood Watch, in the attack, the paper had said. “Please note that strict compliance to this directive is very important as failure to do so will attract severe punishment,” Eze had said.

PREMIUM TIMES also reported that unknown gunmen attacked Amauke and Ogrute communities in Enugu Ezike, Igbo-Eze North Local government Area, Enugu State snatching a motorcycle from an unidentified cyclist and breaking the head of another resident. Despite its suspension, residents of the five South-east states – Enugu, Ebonyi, Anambra, Imo, and Abia – have continued to observe the Monday sit-at-home order, mostly out of fear. According to Ibegbu: “I have always said that Nnamdi Kanu’s case should be solved politically. On Tuesday, roads remained empty across many parts of the South-east. Banks and filling stations were also shut as residents continued observing the sit-at-home order declared by the IPOB group “I dey go home. , last Monday, reported the shootings in some parts of Enugu and Anambra states by suspected IPOB members trying to force a return to the suspended sit-at-home order. My fuel don finish and filling stations no open,” a commercial bus driver in Enugu said when asked if he was fully out for work. “I repeat that Kanu is not a terrorist. However, some youth suspected to be members of IPOB invaded a Catholic church in Onitsha, Anambra State, Tuesday. Mr Nebo told PREMIUM TIMES he would definitely not make enough money to pay his children’s school fees if residents are not allowed to go out for their daily businesses.

They demanded an explanation from the presiding priest on why he was holding service on the day Mr Kanu was scheduled to appear in court.
