We are watching the situation to ensure Nnamdi Kanu’s rights are respected – Abia state govt

The government of Abia state says it is actively watching the situation with IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is an indigene of the state and is currently under trial at a Federal High Court in Abuja, with a view to ensuring that his fundamental human rights, as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic, are respected.

A statement publish by the state Commissioner, John Okiyi Kalu today August 6, says the state government is in touch with his family members, other relevant persons, and institutions, and receives regular updates through them on the situation.

”The Government of Abia State  is confident that the judiciary will ensure a free and manifestly fair trial for him and others as they remain innocent until proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.

We therefore wish to call on all citizens and visitors to continue to be law abiding and avoid any act that might lead to a break down of law and order. ”the statement read

The state government kicked against the ”sit-at-home” order issued by the IPOB members to protest the detention of their leader.

While Government will not compel anyone wishing to sit at home for any reason whatsoever not to do so, as citizens have freedom of movement under the extant Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, we wish to strongly advice that nobody should also compel or enforce any sit at home order from any non state actor as doing so does not serve any known interests of the people of the state.

Furthermore, compelling our children to stay away from school can only serve the interests of the yet to be properly identified persons who may not want to see us make progress as a people.

Similarly, our traders sitting at home at a time they need to work very hard to sustain their families and create wealth especially in this era of COVID-19 impacted global economy will obviously not serve any development interest of our hardworking citizens.

All law abiding citizens and visitors are therefore called upon to go about their normal businesses without fear of molestation as adequate security has been provided to ensure their safety. Parents and guardians are also called upon to ensure that they monitor the activities of their children and wards with a view to ensuring that they do not engage in unlawful activities that will put them in harm’s way. ”
