on

President of the Indigenous Igbo Youth Congress (IIYC), Chief Mayor Echefu, has implored President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to begin to right the wrongs being in Nigeria by facilitating the unconditional release of the detained Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB)…CONTINUE READING

The Supreme Court is set to deliver judgement in respect of the case against Kanu on December 15, 2023.

“The president has said he’s interested in the overall development of the entire country. If that’s the case, the problem in the South East Region caused by the incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should be of serious concern to him.

“During the time of former President Muhammadu Buhari, both the lower and the appeal courts set him free, but he refused to allow the man to go.

“Next Friday, the apex court is going to give judgement over the matter; we call on the president to release Kanu as a Christmas present to the Igbo, and by doing so, he would engrave his name in the hearts of the Igbo.

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday granted permission to former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, to travel to the United Arab Emirates to meet with his family.

Adoke is currently standing trial alongside Aliyu Abubakar, a property developer, over allegations of money laundering amounting to N300m.

The EFCC alleged that Adoke made a cash payment of $2,267,400 to Unity Bank in 2013 in contravention of money laundering laws.

Adoke, through his lawyer, Kanu Agabi, SAN, prayed the court to invoke sections 36 and 37 of the 1999 Constitution to allow him to travel to see his family.

He noted that since the trial of Adoke in money laundering charges brought against him by the FG commenced, he had not been with his family members based in the UAE

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has said his administration has been friendly to Persons Living With Disabilities through many initiatives aimed at making life easier for them.

Adeleke, who said his administration had provided mobility aid and relief materials, added that he included a good number of PLWDs into his Youth Advisory Committee, noting that “after inauguration, I also doled out several accessibility devices, aids, and relief materials to thousands of them through the recognized body for PLWDs in the state, JONAPWD.
