Politics DSS Arrests: Buhari Reported to Obama for 'Disobeying Nigeria Constitution'



Nigeria - Constitutional lawyer and founder of Change.org, Carol Ajie, has petitioned the President of the United States, Barrack Obama, over President Muhammadu Buhari’s “disobedience of court orders.”

The petition emerged following Buhari's recent admission on national TV that the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu were being held against court orders in order for them not to escape.

“Within President Buhari’s first year in office, too soon after he took the revered Oaths, he and state agents acting under his supervision, now demonstrate total lack of respect for Court Orders and at his maiden media chat on Wednesday 30th Dec., instant, Mr President made puerile attempts to justify these breaches, he said inter alia that some persons his regime locked up in cells dehumanized against court orders, Nnamdi Kanu had travelled without his passports.

“But under the Immigration Act, the President or the Minister may deport anyone who travels without a valid travel document or detain for a period not exceeding 7 days. In holding Mr. Kanu beyond the required period they have infracted on the Immigration Act, the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 and subsisting court orders

“With regard to issues of “self determination”, the crux of Nnamdi Kanu’s campaign of the Independent People of Biafra, IPOB, having communicated IPOB’s intent to all and the United Nations as required by UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ratified by Nigeria, that people of any community or group may wish to exercise the right of self-determination with a view to pursuing their economic, social and cultural development; aware that their dignity as human persons had deteriorated and been consciously degraded under the present dispensation, sadly appearing power inebriate.”

Carol Ajie urged President Buhari to resign if he is not ready to obey court orders or risk being impeached from office.

The petition is gathering momentum.
