Don’t Interfere In Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial – Northern Coalition Warns UN
The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has warned the United Nations, UN, against interfering in the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The UN recently indicted both the Nigerian and Kenyan Governments for the extraordinary rendition, torture and continued detention of Kanu without due process.
Consequently, the UN agreed and recommended to the Federal Government to immediately release Kanu unconditionally.
But CNG in a communique issued at the end of its year’s annual retreat on Monday, reiterated its position against undue interference by the international community, particularly the United Nations in the internal security affairs of the country.
The communique signed by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, its Spokesperson, “cautioned the UN to desist from allowing some of its officials drag it into international disrepute by interfering in particularly the matter of the trial of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.”
It further “Cautioned the Nigerian authorities against succumbing to undue pressure from whatever quarter to avoid setting dangerous precedence in the country.
