Vexed by the persistent disrespect of different valid orders of the Courts of competent jurisdiction directing President Muhammadu Buhari to free unconditionally and immediately Mr Nnamdi Kanu from the detention facility of Department of State Security Service ( DSS),  the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria  (HURIWA ) has criticised the Nigerian President for dragging Nigeria back to the military-style tyranny but quickly warned him that his plot to institutionalise totalitarianism would be actively resisted.

HURIWA also carpeted the Nigerian National Assembly and the national leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association  (NBA)  for standing by and doing nothing whilst President Buhari flagrantly violate subsisting and binding court order directing the hierarchy of Department of State Service to immediately and unconditionally free Mr Nnamdi Kanu the Director of the Europe Based Radio Biafra and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra  (IPOB) who has been held under dehumanising condition since three Months.

In a statement jointly signed by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf, HURIWA said the silence of strategic stakeholders on the consistent rape of the Nigerian Constitution by President Buhari is disgraceful and reprehensible just as the group said it is heroic that the Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja reportedly stayed away from an illegal arraignment of Mr Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian Government on treasonable felony charges when in fact President Buhari has committed high treason by refusing to obey a clear and binding order of the Federal High Court.

HURIWA said: “President Muhammadu Buhari stands absolutely condemned for his shameful act of disrespect of the Nigerian Court system which is granted the constitutional judicial powers of the federation. This show of shame will have adverse consequences on the international image of Nigeria because civilised people around the World would view Nigeria as a Banana Republic whereby the political leadership have no regard whatsoever to the Rule of law.”
