No Fulani Man Has Been Prosecuted, Punished For Murdering Igbo Person In Nigeria’s History – Nnamdi Kanu’s American Lawyer Writes UK
In This Review
Bruce Fein, the United US-based lawyer for who is the chief of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has sent a letter for the United Kingdom (UK) High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing.
He has accused Laing of wanting the creation of a united Nigeria as Biafrans were being executed at the hands of government officials of the Nigerian government.
In the letter, dated 1 June 2022, Fein requested for the United Kingdom to file a suit against Nigeria in the International Court of Justice for refusing “the people of Biafra a self-determination referendum as required by Article I of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and an infinite number of corresponding human rights treaties and resolutions.”
in the document, the American-based lawyer claimed that there is no Fulani has ever been charged or punished for murdering Biafrans in the time of Nigeria.
He said that the right to self-determination isn’t considered a crime.
A portion of the letter reads, “I was astonished if not shocked by your tweet on May 12. You expressed your delight at the meeting with the President of the United States Ambassador General George Obiozor of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other top officials of The South East. Why was there a sense of delight or a meeting?
“Ambassador Obiozor is to Biafrans in the ongoing genocide perpetrated by the Fulani similar to what Lord Haw-Haw did for the British at the time of the Nazi Blitz? What is the reason you would want to confront him with an obscene quisling?
“Even more sinister was your fervent support for an unison Nigeria which is almost identical to an agreement to commit suicide for Biafrans. As you are aware, Nigeria was created artificially in The United Kingdom (UK) at the time of machine guns in 1914.
“Following its distinctive divide-and-conquer colonization policy that the UK made on the Biafran people, who had rights to self-determination and their own will, into an explosive mix of conflicting ethnic groups that were under the umbrella of UK sovereignty. The UK abandoned in 1960, leaving Nigeria poised to explode in the manner of Nitroglycerin. The Biafran genocide that took place between 1967 and 1970 which was facilitated and aided through the UK itself was as predictable like Newton’s law of motion.
“Prior to the compelled union in 1914 and 1914, the British reached agreements with Biafra. The jus cogens rule of international law grants Biafrans Biafran citizens with the right to choose their own destiny against the government controlled by Fulani. Nigerian regime that infamously exiled all Biafrans, with the exception of some bribable rebels from the power corridors. One stark fact speaks volumes. The fact is that no Fulani had ever charged and sentenced for murdering one Biafran throughout the entire history of Nigeria!
“Self-determination is at the top of the human rights recognized internationally since it protects all other rights. Self-determination provides a defense against oppression caused by the tyranny of the majority, or the brutal.
“The UK insisted on self-determination for the Protestants of Northern Ireland to forestall probable persecutors from authorities of the Roman Catholic Republic of Ireland. It was in favor of a South Sudan self-determination referendum to end the persecution of the predominantly Black Christian-Animist majority in Sudan by the ruling Arab-Muslim majority.
“Instead of defending an unison, lawless Nigeria that is manipulated by the British to further their own agendas You should be promoting an United Kingdom suit against Nigeria before the International Court of Justice for not allowing the citizens of Biafra an opportunity to participate in a referendum on self-determination, as stipulated by Section I of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and an endless number of human rights resolutions and treaties.
“It is the least the UK could make to pay the price for its grave wrongs and crimes toward the Biafran people, who have persisted for over one century. There is no time limit for justice.
“I am hoping for a concrete response as soon as you are able. Self-determination is far too crucial to be left to a flimsy or Tergiversation.”
