Abuja Federal High Court Postpones NERA10 Case



Abuja: Federal High Court, postpones NERA10 Case

An Abuja Federal High Court Judge, Hon. Justice A.I.Chikere has rescheduled hearing in the case brought by Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe and 9 other Southern Cameroonian leaders challenging their abduction at NERA Hotel, Abuja on January 5th, last year.

When the team of lawyers led by Femi Falana, SAN, Hon. Abdul Oroh and 5 Cameroonian lawyers stormed the court, they were informed that Justice Chikere had traveled to Lagos to attend a seminar.

The case was adjourned to Monday, 28th January, 2019. The court was besieged by family members from Zaria, Kano Makurdi, Yola, Katsina, Calabar and Uyo. Many Southern Cameroonian refugees in Abuja wearing #JUSTICE4NERA10 also besieged the court.

Secretary General of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Peter I. Ozo-Eson expressed concern about the abduction and deportation of the leaders who are mostly University Professors, trade Unionist and lawyers. Dr. Ozo-Eson said the NLC and its affiliate organizations like the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) would mobilise their membership to attend the next hearing and campaign for the release of NERA 10.

The lead counsel from Cameroon Barrister John Fru Nsoh expressed disappointment that the adjournment was not communicated to the lawyers early enough. ” This is at great expense to us. It is not fair, to us and our clients who are languishing in a maximum security prison in Cameroon.

    It is good to know that we are not only depending on the Amba Boys with their sugar cane and groundnuts.
    Barrister Nsoh, it might be inconveniencing now to all, but understand that we are fighting a just battle for which we shall prevail against the hoodlums of LRC no matter what.

      I like your name ‘WataNaWata – Odeshi no work’ but better still I like this one, ‘WataNaWata – National unity, National intergretion, One and Indivisible Nation no work’. Na daso empty propaganda slogan. If not how come weh yawende di still fight Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia going on for two years now and dem never win National intergration, National unity and the lofty one and indivisible nation? Why e be say Satanic Biya declared war and give two weeks to wipe out all the opposition yet we don pass two years and dem nowa win? Read here how weh dem di mobilize to still fight “separatists”, which mean say dia National unity, intergration and indivisible nonsense na lie lie and pure propaganda failure.

      So if you di tork say Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia na none existing kountree, well me too ah fit tell you say if no Independent Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia go exist there will be no national unity, National intergration one and indivisible mumbo jumbo kamaloon as Biya di claim. Why? Bicos Biya’s LRC and Southern Cameroons/Ambazonian forces are still fighting and until the war end, don’t you dare dismiss one of the two parties in the bitter fight for a legitimate cause.

    They are unable to present a passport for the so-called Ambazozo in court but they claim to be Ambazozo people.

      Show me a legal document in conformity with The United Nations charter and resolutions 1514 and 1608 of the 1960s binding the two independent countries (LRC & former British Southern Cameroons) as ONE. Then we can deal with issues of passport and travel. Oh and least I forget that LRC illegally abducted and transported the Nera10 from Nigeria to LRC seeing as there is NO EXTRADITION TREATY between the two countries.

      Seems to me the only thing LRC knows is the use of illegal claims and/or brutal force to obtain what is not theirs.

    Listen, it is not an opposition…Army is fighting terrorists and mercenaries there, nothing else.
    And for this, cameroonian will give the last drop of their blood to ensure the homeland remain one and indivisible.
    You hiding abroad behing keyboard and smartphone or tablets encouraging youngs to hide in the bush and cowardly attack civilians and army and engaging mercenaries will be prosecuted and brought to justice, no worry about that, it will happen sooner or later
