DSS Drops Charges Against Nnamdi Kanu In Magistrate Court by DONSMITH123(m): 12:26pm On Dec 16, 2015
Magistrate of the Chief Magistrate Court, Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, Shuaibu Usman, on Wednesday discharged the Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on all counts of criminal conspiracy and ownership of an unlawful society brought against him by the federal government.

After holding that the government had dropped the charges against Kanu, the judge ruled: “The accused person is hereby discharged and the case struck out.”

The government through its agent, the Department of State Services (DSS), had 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, reports TheCable.

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 DSS got an order of the federal high court, Abuja, to keep the leader of IPOB in detention.

However, his lawyer, Vincent Obetta, filed a counter application, seeking bail for the accused person.

Meanwhile, Justice of the Federal High Court, Abuja, Adeniyi Ademola, is expected to rule on the bail application on Thursday.

Since, the arrest and detention of Kanu by Nigeria’s secret Police, in Lagos, on Saturday, October 17, wave of protests, engineered by IPOB, as well as members of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) had swept through the South-East and parts of the South-South, demanding an immediate and unconditional release of Kanu.

[size=14pt] If we desire a society of peace, then wecannot achieve such a society through
violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is democratic, then Democracy must become a means as well as an end.

To have arrested Nnamdi Kanu is a mistake, to even release him is another sign of stupidity from government.

Nnamdi Kanu is a living hero, more popular than pmb, a true born Biafra, and a moses of our time.
Biafra must come, quote me anywhere

He must have signed a "baba, I no go do am again letter" by now his return ticket to Uk is ready. If he's truly ready to be the next mandela, he has 26yrs and 9months to go. Just watch as he starts campaigning for governments in power just like bro Ralph.

I hope he learns his lesson that this administration isn't the last administration where "do as you like was the order of the day".

And for all those who still believe violent protest and shouting and ranting for a country that exists only in their dreams, I'll have you know that this administration is one of "do anyhow, and you go see anyhow". A lucid lesson Kanu just learned, so did that blogger in Ogun state.

Let peace reign!!!. One love!.

I wonder y the charges were dropped.. Anybody that threatens the peace of the nation should be charged.

Anybody that wants to leave Nigeria should do that peacefully, cos nobody is forcing you to be a part of Nigeria. Nobody is bigger than Nigeria.

To biafrans, just forget about bigger deltans; it's easier to convince the northerners to join Biafra than to convince an average s-southerner.
