Nnamdi Kanu And IPOB Dragged To Court By Igbo Business Man

An Anambra-based businessman, Dr. Richard Ndubuaku, has dragged the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu before the Federal High Court in Abuja, asking it to restrain them, their agents and members from making utterances or taking actions capable of jeopardising the conduct of election in the state. The plaintiff, in his suit marked FHC/ABJ/ CS/756/2017, applied for an order of injunction restraining Kanu and the IPOB from disrupting the governorship and House of Assembly elections billed to hold in Anambra State on November 18. Ndubuaku told the court that he is a businessman in Awka with property in Onisha and other parts of Anambra State. According to the plaintiff, unless they are stopped, Kanu and his IPOB followers could carry out their threat to disrupt the planned poll. Ndubuaku maintained that allowing the defendants to proceed with their threat could result in irreparable damage to him and other innocent citizens of Anambra State.
 In an affidavit he deposed to in support of the suit, the plaintiff told the court that Kanu and other IPOB members have repeatedly made utterances and threats to stop any form of election in Anambra State and Igboland.
 He said: “The defendants (1st and 2nd) are capable of carrying out their threat, and if this happens, many lives will be lost, and property destroyed, which will include that of the plaintiff.
“If the defendants are not restrained, it may lead to confrontation with other law-abiding citizens, who insist on electing their governor and a clash with the defendants will occasion bloodbath as there would be total breakdown of law and order.”

 Besides, he prayed the court for an order restraining Kanu and IPOB from further harassing or intimidating eligible voters in Anambra State or mobilising their members to scuttle the planned election. Equally cited as defendants in the suit were the Inspector-General of Police, Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice. Meanwhile, when the matter came up for hearing, yesterday, Justice Babatunde Quadri, who is sitting as the vacation judge, declined to issue ex-parte order as he was prayed to do by the plaintiff. Rather, Justice Quadri directed counsel to the plaintiff, Mr. Smart Iheazor, to go and put all the defendants on notice by serving them with copies of all the relevant court processes.

D fact is that majority of igbos are not interested in dis rubbish nd it's beginning to cause confusion. If dis Nnamdi really has d interest of Igbos in hrt then he should focus on helping in developing the state's nd making all igbo states independent nd also look for a way to bring all igbos to unity , then maybe from there in the future d biafra tin can happen

All these people that are talking of "him no get sense" in this forum, have you compared your smart sense and your smart speeches with his? I suggest u write a speech, read it out loud to yourself and your family to evaluate if you have more sense than Nnamdi Kanu.
