Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA,has charged President Muhammadu Buhari of attempting to cause chaos to the South East by delaying the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The Federal High Court in Abuja’s delayed trial and continual postponing of the case is primarily intended to provoke Igbo youths into setting the South East of Nigeria on fire.

The Abubakar Malami-led Federal Ministry of Justice, according to HURIWA, has only one objectives: to contaminate the court proceedings and deprive Nnamdi Kanu his constitutionally enshrined fair hearing.
The rights group denounced the IPOB leader’s continued detention as well as Malami’s office’s purposeful sluggishness in delivering justice.
“We appeal to the young people of South East of Nigeria to resist the temptation to be used as cannon fodders for the planned destabilization of the South East of Nigeria ”
“The gameplan of reactionary forces embedded within the office of the Federal Attorney General is to deploy subterfuge and manipulation to try to stoke up Bitterness and agony amongst the supporters and loyalists of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with the overall goal of precipitating civil UPHEAVALS IN the Igbo speaking South East of Nigeria,” the human rights group noted.
“The truth is that constitutionally in Nigeria the right to fair hearing is guaranteed under section 36 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
