Bruce Requested Nigeria Suspended – . 》Nigeria News

Bruce Fein, the United States-based counsel for detained Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, has requested that Nigeria be suspended from the United Nations (UN) over his client’s continued incarceration.

Fein stated this in a letter to the International Working Group regarding the separatist’s continued incarceration.

The United Nations Commission on Human Rights hosts the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNCHR).

The group is made up of scholars and experts who specialize in human rights and related laws.

In the petition to the body, Fein urged the group to recommend that the United Nations Security Council consider suspending Nigeria from the UN for allegedly violating the “Principles of the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” according to SaharaReporters.

Fein stated that it is against international law for a country to kidnap, torture, and then extradite a citizen to another country while they are traveling.

“This letter chronicles the Federal Government of Nigeria’s continuing contemptuous defiance of this Group’s 20 July 2022 Opinion regarding Nnamdi Kanu.” Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Attorney General Abubakar Malami are the main culprits.

“The Opinion requested that the source provide the Working Group with an update on the Government’s compliance.” 111th paragraph The Opinion concluded that Nnamdi Kanu’s detention, which occurred after kidnapping, torture, and extraordinary rendition, violates sixteen (16) international human rights covenants. 105th paragraph The Opinion urged Nigeria’s government to “take immediate action to ensure Kanu’s immediate unconditional release.”

“Since issuing the Opinion three months ago, the Government has consistently refused to release Mr. Kanu from his indefinite arbitrary detention in solitary confinement without access to necessary and urgent medical care.” Furthermore, the Government ignored the Working Group’s request to disseminate the Opinion through “all available means as widely as possible,” in violation of paragraph 110.

“The government’s open and well-documented lawlessness has been exacerbated by its equal contempt for an October 13, 2022, decision by the Court of Appeal of Nigeria, Abuja Judicial Division, Holden at Abuja.” The decision held, among other things, that the Government of Nigeria’s extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya was illegal.

“As a result, Honorable Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie declared, “I hold…that [Nnamdi Kanu] is prohibited from being detained…in Nigeria for or in respect of any offense alleged to have been committed by him prior to his extraordinary rendition to Nigeria.” Page 40. “By the forcible kidnapping and extraordinary rendition of [Nnamdi Kanu] from Kenya to Nigeria on the 27th day of June 2021, in violation of international and state laws…any Court in this country is divested of jurisdiction to entertain charges against [Mr. Kanu],” the Justice continued.

“However, Attorney General Malami has refused to release Mr. Kanu from detention in violation of the Court of Appeals’ decree, committing the crime of false imprisonment himself.”
