Now That The DSS Has Droped Charges Against IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu, What Next?


The magistrate court sitting in Wuse zone 2, Abuja on Wednesday discharged Nnamdi Kanu, director of Radio Biafra and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on all counts of criminal conspiracy and ownership of an unlawful society brought against him by the federal government. The question on the lips of many at the moment is what is next? This is obviously because the protests are still on going and will Mr. Kanu continue in his previous tracks?
The government through its agent, the Department of State Services (DSS), has elected to withdraw the case at the lower court for a higher court, which has jurisdiction to entertain charges bordering on terrorism, to take over. Usman was scheduled to deliver judgment on the application of the DSS on December 1, but he put it off until December 16.
The DSS has held Kanu for at least 90 days despite an order of the magistrate court granting him bail in October.
After the lower court granted him bail, the secret police got an order of the federal high court, Abuja, to keep the leader of IPOB in detention.
But his lawyer, Vincent Obetta, filed a counter application, seeking bail for the accused person. Adeniyi Ademola, justice of the federal high court, Abuja, is expected to rule on the bail application on Thursday.
A wave of protests, engineered by IPOB, had swept through the southeast a few days ago owing to the continued detention of Kanu.
Let us all hope, this aggression is put to an end
