The family of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has cried out over the Supreme Court’s delay to release the Certified True Copy, CTC of its judgment in the suit involving their son.
Speaking for the family, Kanunta Kanu said the action of the apex court “is impeding further legal moves” by the family to seek justice for their son.
He regretted according to a discreet investigation by the family, over one month after the supreme court delivered its judgment on the matter, the Justices of the apex court who abdicated in the matter were yet to append their signatures on the judgment.
Recall that the Supreme Court had on December 15, 2023, refused to affirm the ruling of the Appeal Court which had ordered the immediate release of Kanu.
The supreme court ruled that instead, Kanu should be tried at the appropriate court.
Kanunta expressed surprise that the Justices of the apex court allowed the normal two weeks to elapse without signing the judgment.
Suspected foul play over the unnecessary delays, Kanunta said the action amounted to a gross violation of the principles of the rule of law.
He said: “Unlawfully withholding the CTC in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has confirmed that Nigeria will not obey her treaty obligations.
“These justices, the presidency and the Nigerian entity are officially terrorists according to the laws of Nigeria.”
