Nnamdi Kanu Continued Illegal detention and Selective Justices in Nigeria -- What the world Must know 

In a nation that prides self on democratic principles and the protection of fundamental rights, the case of Nnamdi Kanu stands as a stark reminder of the fragility of justice and the suppression of dissenting voices. As the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Kanu finds himself languishing in detention despite being discharged and acquitted by Courts of jurisdiction.

Nnamdi Kanu's story is one of an individual who dared to challenge the status quo, speaking out against perceived injustices. He used his platform to advocate for the rights and aspirations of the Biafran people, who have long endured marginalization and neglect by the Nigerian state. However, instead of engaging in a constructive dialogue or addressing the grievances raised, the Nigerian authorities chose to silence him through an illegal and unconstitutional means.

Despite the judiciary's role as a beacon of justice, it seems that even the courts have failed Nnamdi Kanu. After a protracted legal battle, he was eventually discharged and acquitted of all charges brought against him. This should have marked the end of his ordeal and a chance for him to rebuild his life. However, the government's refusal to accept the court's decision and release Kanu exposes a dangerous disregard for the rule of law and undermines the integrity of the justice system. Setting in motion a dangerous precedent capable of upending a society’s law and order.

Nnamdi Kanu's continued detention serves as a chilling reminder of the lengths some governments will go to stifle dissent and suppress political opposition. By designating him as a political prisoner, we acknowledge that his incarceration is not based on any criminal wrongdoing but rather a deliberate attempt to silence his voice and intimidate those who dare to challenge the established order. Such actions only serves to deepen divisions and sow seeds of unrest within the nation.

While Nnamdi Kanu's case has received attention from human rights organizations and concerned individuals worldwide, his cry for justice remains unanswered within Nigeria. It is disheartening to witness the selective application of the law, where some individuals are granted impunity while others are unjustly persecuted for their beliefs. The international community must lend their voice more signifantly to amplify the call for justice and demand that the Nigeria government upholds its obligations to protect the rights of its citizens.

Rather than resort to repression, it is imperative for Nigeria government to embrace dialogue and address the legitimate concerns raised by Nnamdi Kanu and his believers. By engaging in meaningful discussions and exploring avenues for peaceful resolution, the government can take a significant step towards healing the wounds of a fractured nation. 

The case of Nnamdi Kanu represents a dark chapter in Nigeria's said democracy and the protection of human rights. His continued detention, despite being discharged and acquitted, highlights the need for a comprehensive overhaul of the justice system and a renewed commitment to upholding the rule of law. It is incumbent upon the Nigeria government to release Nnamdi Kanu, listen to the grievances of the people he represents, and embark on a path of dialogue and reconciliation. Only through such actions can a nation truly heal and move towards a brighter future where every voice is heard and every citizen's rights are respected.
