Igbo Think Tank, Aka Ikenga on Wednesday described the continued detention of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu by the Department of State Service (DSS), despite bail by a court as “executive lawlessness”.
According to a report by “Daily Independent”, Its President, Goddy Uwazurike, that Igbos will hold the government of President Muhammadu Buhari responsible if Kanu dies.

He said: “It is executive lawlessness to detain a man who has been unconditionally released by the court of competent jurisdiction. That is what the law says. That is why the judiciary is there.

“The rule of law is a cardinal part of our democracy; so when the court gives judgement, everyone obeys. It is not for the government to prosecute and adjudicate at the same time. To continue to detain a man after he has been freed is nothing but executive brigandage.

“Of course, the federal government is asking for something bigger than what is happening now if anything untoward should happen to Kanu while in detention. What is right is right, what is wrong is wrong. It is wrong to keep a man in detention after he has been freed by the court.

“If anything happens to him, then they bear hundred percent liability for it. If you have no right to do what you are doing and you continue to do it, then they should face whatever they see.

“They arrested him and took him to court. Having submitted to the jurisdiction of the court, why then are you treating the court as if they don’t exist? If you don’t want the judiciary to exist, why don’t you go ahead and amend the constitution and delist the judiciary?

“Then you also delist the legislature and we will all know that we have a full military government”, he said.
