SERG urges FG to obey court order

The South East Revival Group (SERG) has ap­pealed to the Federal Government to obey the court order granting bail to the leader of the In­digenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
It described the ruling another victory for the judiciary and proof that “some judges still have the conscience and sense of justice.”
In a statement issued on Tuesday by its Con­vener and National Co­ordinator, Chief Willy Ezugwu, the group urged the Federal Government to obey its own court this time around.
He said: “Despite that his bail conditions were too stringent, we com­mend the judiciary for proving its independence by not standing justice on the head by refusing Nnamdi Kanu bail.
“We hope that this time around, the federal gov­ernment would obey the order of the court and al­low the judicial process to be completed.
“If for any reason the government is not satis­fied with the ruling of any court, it can choose to ap­peal rather than being the Judge in its own case.
“President Muhamma­du Buhari should show Nigerians that he has be­come a democrat by en­suring that the rule of law is followed no matter who is involved in any matter, be it criminal or civil.
“Once the rule of law is undermined by undue interference in the du­ties of the judiciary, the basic tenet of democracy is decimated,” the group said.-The Authority
