Nnamdi Kanu’s Visitors Forced To Get Clearance From Prison Headquarters, Ipob Alleges

Published

on

Pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, on Friday, said the Federal Government has devised means to deny access to people who wish to visit Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prisons, Abuja.

Several prominent individuals, including former Central Bank Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo, and an economist, Prof. Pat Utomi, have visited Kanu in the prison, where he is being detained as the Federal Government prosecutes him for allegedly committing offences that bordered on treasonable felony.

Biafra activists, including IPOB members, are also among those who regularly visit Kanu in the prison.

But in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mr. Emma Powerful, IPOB said unlike the normal practice in the past, whereby visitors only have to fill forms at the prison gate before they are allowed to see any of the prisoners they came to visit, people who wish to see Kanu are now made to get a clearance from the headquarters of the Nigerian Prisons Service in Abuja.

IPOB said the new measure amounted to ‘harassment’ of Kanu’s visitors.

“The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and its leadership worldwide, has raised the alarm over the incessant harassment meted on the people who visit our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Kuje Prison, Abuja.

“Information reaching us this morning has it that visitors are no longer allowed to see the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and his fellow freedom fighters, namely Benjamin Madubugwu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and David Nwawuisi, except they get clearance forms from the prison headquarters, Abuja.

“The legal and constitutional procedure that every visitor has followed right from the onset is to fill some forms at the Kuje Prison gate with a passport photograph, and submit same to the security at the entrance for verification before the visitor is granted entry.

“This procedure has been applicable to both Nnamdi Kanu and other inmates in Kuje Prison.

“But this new method is totally strange and entirely different and it reeks of some vendetta,” IPOB alleged in the statement.

The new measure, which is allegedly only applicable to Kanu, was devised to frustrate those who wish to see him in the prison, IPOB claimed.

The statement said, “Now this new plan has come up to seemingly frustrate the visitors who come for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his mates.

The question now is why is this new method introduced? Why is the order affecting only Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s visitors?

“There are other inmates in Kuje Prison but why are only Nnamdi Kanu’s visitors always either denied access to see him, harassed and embarrassed, or even manhandled while visitors of other inmates encounter no challenges at all?

“For how long will this injustice and inhuman treatment last?”

“Currently, a good number of innocent people are at Kuje Prison this morning, waiting to see their amiable leader and brother, Nnamdi Kanu, but they have been denied access,” IPOB added.

The secessionists, in the statement, also alleged that an attempt was made on Kanu’s life, while he was being driven to court, on Thursday.

But the group did not provide details of the alleged assassination attempt.

IPOB only explained that the said plot ‘failed woefully’.

“Marrying Adesua is the second best decision I made in my adult life” – Banky W

Published

on

Banky W and Adesua Etomi-Wellington are marking their third wedding anniversary today and the couple left sweet posts on Instagram.

The singer shared a video from their wedding and spoke of their love journey.

He wrote:

3 years ago, Susu and I made the decision to love each other forever. But the only reason forever is even possible, is because we made the decision to make God our foundation. And while a foundation is the part of the house that people don’t see, it’s by far the most important.

Because you can fix cracks in the walls, refurbish the rooms and repaint the halls, but you can’t get the foundation wrong if you want any chance of the house standing at all. The structural integrity of a house requires a foundation that is built to last.

I recently heard a Pastor say that love can’t keep a marriage going… he said it takes God and commitment. I think maybe he had a bit of a misunderstanding of what love really means. Because… well, God IS love. And love is commitment. Without both, it certainly isn’t love and it definitely won’t work. People sometimes think Susu led me to God. But it’s not true. God led me to Susu. And He has kept us through it all.

Marrying @adesuaetomi is the 2nd best decision I made in my adult life. The best was re-dedicating my life to Christ.

Susu, I am thankful for you, and grateful to you. You are everything I want and much more than I deserve. You mean the world to me and I intend to spend the rest of my life proving it. I love you now more than ever.
3 years down, I’m looking forward to forever.

I love you. Happy Anniversary Shuga.

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud…It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– 1 Cor 13:4..8

“… and the rains descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
– Matt 7:26

Adesua shared the same video on Instagram and told Banky that apart from Jesus, he is the light of her life.

She wrote:

Three years? Seems like yesterday. Seems like forever.
Three years with my bestie.
Everyone knows you’re my husband but today I want to thank you for being my best friend.
The most attentive, loving, funny, caring, inspiring friend I have ever had.
I thought I knew how to love but omo, you have schooled me.
I never knew it was possible to be with someone this long and not have it be riddled with tons of fights. I’m glad for our low voiced intense conversations. Lol
You don’t make me feel crazy, I don’t have to yell before I’m heard. I don’t have to worry. I don’t second guess how you feel about me. I know I’m valued, as I should be.
Thank you bubz, for just being a correct human being. For the heart that you have. For being quick to be sorry when you’re wrong (whispers…even when you’re not. Lol) (I do the same sha)
For not putting your ego before us. For giving me a home that’s my safe haven. I’m grateful for the home we have built. I always look forward to coming home and it takes a lot to even get me out of the house. Lol.
God has done the most marvellous things these past 3 years. May he continue to be the 3rd cord in this threefold cord. As long as he lives and he shields and we keep him part of our lives, we will never be easily broken.
Apart from Jesus, you are def the light of my life.
May that light continue to shine brighter and brighter.
You, my darling are a force to be reckoned with and the world will remember your name.
@bankywellington I love you doesn’t seem to suffice anymore but I’ll say it anyway. I love you with every fibre of my being. Let’s do this till we’re old and grey and maybe in heaven too?
