    Unbelievable! Northern Elders Ask Court To Exit East From Nigeria

    Northern Elders

    Stakeholders in the north are taking serious legal steps to ensure that the southeast exits Nigeria. To make this possible, the northerners have already filed a suit at the Federal High Court in Abuja. The suit asks the court to force the National Assembly to expel all Igbos from the country.

    However, in response to this, lawyers from the southeast have asked the court to include them as defendants in the suit because this is a critical issue for the Igbos.

    Some northern elders have petitioned the Federal High Court in Abuja to order the National Assembly to withdraw from Nigeria’s southeastern region.

    The plaintiffs, led by Nastura Ashir Shariff, Balarabe Rufa’I, and Abdul-Aziz Sulaiman, Sulaiman and Aminu Adam hope to complete the constitutional review before the end of the year.

    According to the group, this is one of the ways to end the violence associated with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu’s secessionist agitations, The Sun reports.

    According to a Daily Trust report, these northerners claim they are attempting to avoid a recurrence of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, which claimed many lives on both sides.

    The suit names the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Senate President Ahmad Lawan, House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, and the National Assembly as defendants.

    Reacting, lawyers of Igbo origin have asked the court to include them as defendants in the suit, which they claim has the potential to affect the lives of southeasterners.

    The legal team, which includes a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Chief Chuks Muoma, Ukpai Ukairo, Ebere Uzoatu, and Honourable Obi Emuka, believes that joining them as defendants in the suit is only fair.

    They argued that this would provide a level playing field for them to speak in court in defence of the Igbos.

    In part, their application stated:

    That the Igbo Lawyers Association and its objective is to represent the interest of the Igbo people which said people are Indigenous in the South East of Nigeria. Thus, the association is interested and is a necessary party to be joined.

    “That It will serve the interest of justice if the Honourable court grants the application and join the applicants as defendants in the suit and that the plaintiffs will not be prejudiced if the application is granted.”
