Social sharing

The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has finally reacted after the Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu recorded victory at the apex Court.

9news Nigeria had reported that the Supreme Court sitting in Abuja on Friday unanimously overturned the conviction of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in the “N7. 65 billion” fraud.

Speaking over the victory, Kanu said that the members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, have set the former governor free from prison.

He noted that all reasonable Igbo people are happy over the release of Orji Kalu.

He said : “I am also looking forward to hearing the same about Olisah Metuh soon.”

The statement reads in full,

“God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama takes all the glory but I must also say that the moderately reasonable Alimajiri judge that quashed the original conviction should be commended for saving Abba Kyari & the rest of the core north from damaging scrutiny and global shame by #IPOB. Those that ignore our warnings do so at their peril. “

“We have set Orji Uzor Kalu free today and while all reasonable Igbo people are happy, I am also looking forward to hearing the same about Olisah Metuh soon.”

“There are other victims of this lopsided prosecution, they are incarcerated and MUST be released until all stolen money by this cabal is accounted for, starting from the nearly 14Billion Aso Rock Clinic they looted from 2015 to date.”

“I am calling for an end to selective prosecution and the immediate release of the following people:

Joshua Dariye
Jolly Nyame
James Bala Ngilari”

“Until such a time that Nigeria is serious about prosecuting all looters, nobody should be in prison. You cannot be jailing Christians from the Middle Belt and South in the name of fighting corruption while Fulani arch looters are jostling for who will be the next Chief of Staff and in effect de-facto president. Such injustice is what we are against not your fight against corruption.”

Recall that in statement made available to 9News Nigeria on Friday personally signed by him, Kalu said the past five months have provided him an opportunity to learn invaluable lessons about Nigeria

He thanked Nigerians and the judiciary and revealed that the judgement reaffirmed his belief in the judicial system
