Upon his recovery from the shock, he assured me that we are on this earth for a divine assignment and that no man will take our life because Chukwuokike Abiama is always on the throne.


He was further briefed on other disturbing situation /happenings. He frowned at the desperate attempts by the agents of darkness to give a dog a bad name in order to hang it.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu offered special prayers to those who had lost earnings, opportunities, incomes and daily bread in the course of expressing their firm solidarity with him. He prays to Almighty Chukwuokike Abiama to reward them according to their sacrifices Ise.


Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu emphatically implored his followers to continue to shun violence and never be cajoled or tempted by the enemies of our people into changing their peaceful method.

Court awards #20b damages against Lawless DSS for illegal raid of Igboho house

Court awards #20b damages against Lawless DSS for illegal raid of Igboho house


An Oyo State High Court on Friday granted a relief sought by Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho and ordered the Nigerian government to pay him N20 billion.

The Court Orders the Major General Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government To Pay Sunday Igboho N20billion for the illegal raid of his house in Ibadan, Oyo State Capital.

In its ruling, the court also dismissed an application filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, challenging its jurisdiction to hear allegations against Nigerian government agencies.

The court was expected to deliver judgement or ruling on the N500 billion fundamental human rights case instituted by the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho against the Nigerian Government and Department of State Services (DSS).

Adeyemo Sunday Igboho had through his lawyer, Yomi Alliyu, filed a suit challenging the invasion of his house in Ibadan on July 1 by operatives of the DSS, also known as the State Security Service (SSS) or secret police.

Igboho is, among others, seeking an order of the court to declare the invasion of his residence by DSS operatives as illegal and an infringement on his fundamental human rights.

The three respondents are Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), as the first respondent, SSS as the second respondent and Director of SSS in Oyo State as the third respondent.

Counsel for the AGF, Abubakar Abdullahi had filed an application challeging the ability of a state High Court to hear the activities of Nigerian government agencies.

But citing several judgements by the Supreme and Appeal courts in respect of the ability of the state high court to hear such cases, Justice Ladiran Akintola said the invasion of the house of the applicant violated his fundamental human rights as stipulated in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as ammended.

“Unfortunately, this court is not a Father Christmas and cannot award the sum of N500 billion as requested by the applicant but the court retrained the respondent from arresting or harassing the applicant. He has right to his free movement as contain in section 35.1 (a)(b) of the 1999 constitution as amended.”


Meanwhile, Buhari led Nepotic Government is known for lack of respect for the rules of law, fundamental human rights and fragrance disobedience to court orders.

NIGERIA IS ABOUT TO SNAP; THE UN MUST ACT NOW TO AVERT CATASTROPHE - NINAS

NIGERIA IS ABOUT TO SNAP; THE UN MUST ACT NOW TO AVERT CATASTROPHE - NINAS

(Being a Letter Addressed to United Nations Security Council, the Trusteeship Council and the General Assembly, September 14, 2021 by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination, (NINAS), at the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.


PROTOCOLS.


1.    We, the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria gather today at the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York to alert the UN, and the rest of the Global Community that the Union of Nigeria has failed irredeemably; and is now at the verge of a Violent Disintegration with Catastrophic Consequences for Global Peace, and Security as our population of over 200 million would become an Instant Global Refugee Nightmare.

 

2.    Amidst the extraordinary difficulties inflicted by the imposition and enforcement of Sharia by a section of Nigeria in a supposedly Secular Union, the immediate reason for this looming catastrophe is the Cocktail of Mass Killing, Kidnapping and General Banditry being orchestrated against the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria by an invading Fulani Militia masquerading as Herdsmen in an undisguised Ethnic Cleansing Campaign that progressively demonstrate the Complicity of the Federal Government of Nigeria headed by Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani man, who as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria is also the Life Grand Patron of the notorious Myetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria; that proudly takes responsibility for the Murderous Exploits of the Fulani Herdsmen  Militia designated the Fourth Most Deadly Terror Group.

 

3.    Compounding their impunity, the same Myetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association at a recent Press Conference organised to mock the Planned NINAS Million-Man Freedom March to the UN, boasted to be in control of the UN through their daughter, Amina Mohammed, the Deputy Secretary-General at the UN. An indication that (Amina Mohammed) nominated to that Exalted UN Position by the Fulani President of Nigeria Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, is in some way a part of the Grand Protection Design for the Fulani Herdsmen in their Bloody, Onslaught against the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria.

 

4.    It will be recalled that following widespread extrajudicial killings in Nigeria, the UN in August of 2019, dispatched a Special Rapporteur Mission to Nigeria led by Agnes Callamard. The Damning Verdict of that Rapporteur Mission was that the widespread extrajudicial killings were flowing from the Unitary Constitutional Arrangements of Nigeria, which operates as a PRESSURE-COOKER FOR INJUSTICE and that Nigeria under that Constitution is a Danger to Global Peace and Security. The Report warned that unless something is done urgently, Nigeria would Snap, plunging its 200 million Population into turmoil that will trigger a Large-Scale Refugee Crisis of unprecedented magnitude at a time the Global Terror Networks, ISIS, ISWAP and AL-Qaeda are already converging in Nigeria.

 

5.    It will be recalled that in furtherance of the Repudiation and Rejection of the Unitary Constitution of Nigeria (1999), and the Toxic Union it foists, the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (being the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria) on December 16, 2020 Declared a Constitutional Force Majeure, raising a Union Dispute with 5-Point Demand for the termination of the operation of the aforementioned imposed Constitution; for the immediate commencement of remediation of the Long-Standing Grave Constitutional Grievances of Nigeria’s Constituent Components, failing which the Peoples of the Alliance Territory would Reconsider their Allegiance to that Constitution. The Key Highlights of the five-point demand include the suspension of the further elections (Particularly the 2023 Elections), under the repudiated 1999 constitution as well as the initiation of a time-bound transitioning arrangement to mid-wife the emergence of fresh constitutional protocols founded on the sovereignty and self-determination rights of the constituent components of Nigeria. An Online Petition conveying the Demands of that Constitutional Force Majeure Proclamation, is currently before the UN Security Council.

 

6.    That Nigeria has failed as a State is no longer a Subject for Debate, having emerged the Global Poverty Capital, and Playing Host to Two of the World’s Top Four Most Deadly Terrorists Organisation, with Three-quarters of the Constituent Components (South and Middle-Belt) Seeking Urgent Extrication by Way of Referendums from what has become a Union of Death. Looking back at the recent turn of events in Afghanistan, this Freedom March to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, is to alert the Global Community of the rapidly degenerating situation of Nigeria, and to invite United Nations, particularly the Security Council, and Trusteeship Council, to initiate Urgent Steps to Arrest Nigeria’s Descent into Chaos, as besieged communities drift dangerously to self-help.

Sooner than may be expected, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will regain his freedom says Lead Counsel Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor

Sooner than may be expected, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will regain his freedom says Lead Counsel Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor


The lead Counsel to the incarcerated leader of Independent People Of Biafra ( IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has said sooner than expected the IPOB leader will again his freedom.

Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor in a Press Statement Saturday in response to the IPOB suspension if sit at home Monday

He said: "Sooner than may be expected, the God's annointed, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will regain his freedom. God is working it out."

The statement asked people to do away with propaganda, gossip, mischief, campaign of calumny and pay attention to messsges from recognized source(s).


READ THE FULL STATEMENT BELOW:


PRESS STATEMENT:

I have observed with dismay, the avalanche of emails and messages from Umuchineke unanimously prodding for a clarification /confirmation on the highlights of the press statement issued by the leadership of our Client yesterday, suspending their Sit-at-home Order.

I cannot stop being shocked by the manifested lack of trust / disbelief expressed over the authenticity of the message.

There is therefore, an urgent need that facts are put in their proper perpectives.

We at the legal team are increasingly becoming embarrassed with the unfortunate manner in which some people, ostensibly moles, notorious for mischief, are deliberately dragging us into the decision making arm of the movement, a position which we never represent.

Responsive listeners / followers should always be smart to decipher the language methodology messages are being conveyed by their leadership at every point in time. You people call it C. and C.

Introducing insinuations, fundamentally unconnected with the intended motive only means you still have a long way to go.

In times like this, people should do away with propaganda, gossip, mischief, campaign of calumny and pay attention to messsges from recognized source(s).

For your information, if you are expecting me to write it, or answer your questions in black and white, perhaps in a manner that even my aged mother in the village will nod her head in appreciation of the content, then you are very far from getting it here.

An Igbo proverb says "atuolu omalu, omalu mana atuolu ofeke ofeyi isi na ofia".

I believe these few words should aid you further in understanding the direction we are driving at.

What Our Client - Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and we in the legal team, essentially need in this moment of legal fireworks is your prayers and supplications, and not insults /disparaging remarks.

We are under compelling obligation to be upright at all times, regularly update you people on things you need to hear from us regarding the happenings around Our Client.

We have unblemishly managed IPOB briefs for over a decade, despite every intimidating odds / life threatening situation, without recording any form of compromise. How do you now think we can deviate at this critical moment? Please be properly guided.

Sooner than may be expected, the God's annointed, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will regain his freedom. God is working it out.

However, all hands must be on deck to see us realize this uncommon feat, within the shortest time possible. Ise.

Ka Chukwuokike Abiama mezie okwu nkea, ma goziekwa unu dum.

Who is Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB?

Who is Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB?


He was born in to a Royal family, as the first son, he was a prince, an heir to the throne.

His father was so rich that he sent him abroad for study, he studied in England and later became a British citizen.

He was the CEO of Alpha Consult, he was being paid in Pounds hourly.

He was very comfortable, enjoying his life and wealth in EUROPE, until his encounter with Divinity, like Moses of the old he became worried and burdened about the condition of his brothers and sisters (the Igbos) who are in Nigeria.

He saw their pains, persecution, marginalization, subjugation, intimidation and the suffering they went through every day in the hand of their task masters (Nigeria).

Just like the children of Isreal in Egypt, his love and passion for the welfare of his own people (the Igbos) led him embark on the journey that took the life of his mother and father and a cousin.

And almost took his own life but for the mercy of Elohim. He risked his life and everything he has just because he wanted a better life for his people.

He was arrested and kept in jail for almost 2 years. He was later released, but while in detention he was given an opportunity to deny his people but he refused.

They offered him huge money, vice president seat, Oil well, or anything else he wants, but he turned all their offer down.

So when they discovered that he cannot be bribed or bought over like his predecessor and other political jobers among us, they had no other options but to eliminate him.

So they declared war with a code name - Operation Python Dance. This was organized by Nigerian government in collaboration with his own people, the same people he was fighting for.

In September 2017, they came to his house to kill him, but fortunately God preserved him. That deadly mission by Nigerian government took the lives of 28 young men including a dog.

Today he is in jail again...

#RevolutionNowNigeria: Coward regime led by Muhammadu Buhari yields by releasing Shiites leader Ibrahim El ZakZaky, #Oduduwa12 abducted from home of Sunday Igboho, #Dunamis5 arrested and tortured for wearing #BuhariMustGo Tshirts to Church, several #EndSarsProtesters - Sowore


Today is August 5 2021, as expected, today marks the 2nd anniversary of the introduction of REVOLUTION into the political lexicon of Nigeria’s checkered history. It was the first time a group of courageous citizens took on the behemoth corrupt, undisciplined, incompetent, feudalistic and fascist Nigerian political system with the plan to distinctly demolish it to save Nigerians from perdition and possible extinction.  When the event of August 2019 hit in over 20 cities across Nigeria too it took many by surprise such that 5 million people searched and sought to know the meaning of REVOLUTION on google.com. 


Today, many of our citizens have gained more consciousness and better political understanding of how a REVOLUTION would put an end to their misery and birth a new era where social and economic justice will be accorded a prime place in their lives.  


The struggle for #RevolutionNow slated for today was dedicated to the release of unjustly detained citizens by the regime. We are happy to announce that the cowardly regime led by Muhammadu Buhari has yielded by releasing Shiites leader Ibrahim El ZakZaky, #Oduduwa12 abducted from the home of Sunday Adeyemo aka “Sunday Igboho,” #Dunamis5 arrested and tortured for wearing #BuhariMustGo Tshirts to Church, several #EndSarsProtesters  have all been granted reprieve while we pursue our next intensive struggle to #FreeNnamdiKanu and several other victims of impunity, we commend our commitment colleagues for a job well done!



These token victories would however not eclipse our ultimate goal to upturn the rotten system of patronage, greed, predatory conduct and authoritarianism by the Nigeria political elite led by Buhari. 


However, due to the need to have a bigger and larger mass action for this year, it was decided that we would step down today’s direct action and only engage in symbolic activities. A new date will soon be announced for a global mass action against tyranny and oppression in Nigeria. There is no alternative to a People’s REVOLUTION. #Revolutionnow #Buharimustgo

THE PURPORTED OBASANJO MEETING: Ilana Omo Oodua Knows Nothing About It - Statement

THE PURPORTED OBASANJO MEETING: Ilana Omo Oodua Knows Nothing About It - Statement


There is a shrill call circulating all over the social media via a video recording by an unidentified individual that there is a meeting of all Yoruba sons and daughters with General Olusegun Obasanjo scheduled for Saturday.


*Ilana Omo Oodua* wishes to emphatically dissociate itself and all its affiliate organizations from the call for, or the organization of, any such meeting.


The former Nigerian President has not informed us, nor called any of our leaders, especially Prof. Banji Akintoye, the leader of the Yoruba Self Determination Movement, to put us on notice.


The video is totally empty on detail and content.


 Many questions abound:

Which Saturday is it being slated for: tomorrow or next week? What date, specifically?


Which Obasanjo house in Sango Ota? His farm is at Ota; There is no place called Sango Ota. His three known houses, or places of abode, are in Abeokuta: on the hill, at the Library and at his family house in the centre of the ancient city.


What is the agenda of such a meeting?

Who convened it? Is it at the instance of Obasanjo himself?

What is the name of the person making the announcement? Which group does he represent or belong to?

Whose interest is he serving?

Who is sponsoring the convergence?


Obasanjo is a Yoruba. He is within his moral right as a Yoruba elder to call for a meeting of Yoruba people of any hue, concerning matters affecting the Yoruba race.


But if it is on the matter of Yoruba self-determination or on the subsisting Yoruba affliction and persecution within Nigeria, getting such a call from an anonymous individual on social media is suspicious and disorienting, to say the least.

The acknowledged leader of the Yoruba self-determination struggle is Prof. Banji Akintoye. Gen Obasanjo, or his representatives or agents could have reached out to him to assemble credible Yoruba groups for such a discussion.


That could have earned the invitation more weight and credibility.


This particular call is uncoordinated, sounds suspicious and would lead to a meeting (if at all any such meeting holds) that is very unlikely to bear any positive fruit for our course.


If anybody chooses to attend the meeting, *Ilana Omo Oodua* states here clearly that he or she does so at his or her own risk.


*Ilana Omo Oodua* is presently inundated with many court cases involving Yoruba sons and daughters illegally arrested, detained or caused to be detained by the Nigerian government.


The attendant expenditure on legal matters and logistics issues is quite challenging.


We may not be in a position to bail out, or rescue, any wayfarer caught in the web of this particular adventure!


Attendee’s discretion is therefore advised.


Thank you.

AFENIFERE NEVER LIKENS IGBOHO TO PROPHET MUHAMMAD (s.a.w)

AFENIFERE NEVER LIKENS IGBOHO TO PROPHET MUHAMMAD (s.a.w)

Igboho

Our attention has been drawn to the mischievous and unfounded insinuation making the rounds on what Afenifere said on Mr Sunday Igboho, the Yoruba nation agitator who is presently on trial in Benin Republic.

We like to state very clearly that Afenifere never made such comparison nor implied it in any form. Afenifere, the Pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, has people of different faiths in its fold. Muslims members occupy eminent positions in the organisation like adherents of other faiths. 

To set the record straight, we hereby present the circumstance that gave birth to the unfounded insinuation.

On Monday, July 25, 2021, we issued a statement in which we lauded Olubadan of Ibadan, Ooni of Ife and other Obas for sending delegations to Cotonou in the wake of Sunday Igboho’s trial.

In the statement, an illusion was made to the condemnation being hauled at Igboho 'for running away' from Nigeria.

The relevant paragraphs read as follow:


“It is so sad that President Muhammadu Buhari administration is concentrating on hunting and harassing those who are seeking relief from the oppressive situation in Nigeria while shying away from tackling the menaces of kidnapping, terrorism and antics bordering on ethnic cleansing”.

`On the propriety of Sunday Igboho trying to escape abroad, Afenifere maintained that there is nothing strange or wrong with this adding that history is replete with conveyors of a new order having to seek refuge outside their immediate environment at least for a time.

“We recall that Moses had to be taken away from the prying eyes of Pharaoh and his agents in Egypt. Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) too had to leave his hometown, Mecca for Medina in order to escape persecution. Thus, there is nothing wrong in Igboho seeking a respite first to preserve his life and perhaps to re-strategize.

Afenifere under Chief Adebanjo accused the federal government of going after freedom agitators while neglecting those who are known to be behind terrorism in the country.'

From the above, it could be seen that the reference made to the two Prophets, Moses and Muhammad (s.a.w) was in the context of seeking refuge from persecution. No reference whatsoever, in form of comparison, to the persons of the highly referred Prophets and Igboho as there was absolutely no reason for such. 

Various media used the story. None, except Sahara Reporters, came up with a headline that was clearly sensational and libelous. In none of other media platforms, especially traditional media, did such insinuation appear. Indeed, the body of the story published by Sahara Reporters has no bearing with the sensational and unprofessional headline it cast. 

Its handling of the story was so condemnable that it had even pulled it down from its platform - with apology. If it were sure of the veracity of its report, why pulling it down - with apology? 

The conduct of Sahara Reporters in this case is saddening in view of the efforts being made to ensure that the media is not gagged.

Giving the recognition members of Afenifere have for all religious faiths and the high regards we have for Prophets of God, there is no way we would liken an individual to these prophets, least of all, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)' the Release added.

4 of the Yoruba rally detainees colapsed in the crowded cell and have been rushed to police hospital, Falomo. One of them seriously at the point of death.  


It will be problematic for the police for any of them to die in police custody after the Magistrate have ordered their release since last Monday and police bureaucracy prevented their release on Friday. 


It is better for the police to hasten their work so the detainees can be released without further delay.

Nigeria': ABC of Civil Resistance

Nigeria': ABC of Civil Resistance

Non-violence Resistance brought an end to military rules in Nigeria and eventual handover to a democratically elected president in 1999.


Civil resistance is a powerful way for people to fight for their rights, freedom, and justice—without the use of violence.



When people wage civil resistance, they use tactics such as strikes, boycotts, mass protests, and many other nonviolent actions to withdraw their cooperation from an oppressive system.


Throughout history and in the present day, civil resistance movements have forced change to happen, even against powerful opponents who are willing to use violence. They disrupt business as usual, shift the behavior and loyalties of a system’s defenders, and cause bystanders to side with the movement. In the face of widespread nonviolent defiance—and the social, economic, and political pressure that it creates—an oppressive system becomes too costly to maintain and ultimately unsustainable.


Many civil resistance campaigns and movements have created these dynamics and changed history as a result.


Where has Civil Resistance Been Used?


Civil resistance has been waged in hundreds of societies and cultures around the world. It has been used for diverse purposes throughout history, such as:


Holding governments, corporations and other non-state actors accountable

Achieving women’s rights, minority rights, indigenous rights, labor rights, and democratic rights.

Anti-corruption and transparency campaigns

Self-determination struggles

Resisting foreign occupation

Campaigns for public and community safety and reducing deadly violence in conflict zones

Environmental sustainability and conservation

Land reform

Many other causes

Here are specific examples:

The British gave up their occupation of India after a decades-long nonviolent struggle by the Indian population led by Mohandas Gandhi.


The Danes, Norwegians and other peoples in Europe used civil resistance against Nazi invasion during World War II, raising the costs to Germany of its occupation of these nations, helping to strengthen the spirit and cohesion of their people, and saving the lives of thousands of Jews in Berlin to Copenhagen to Paris and elsewhere.


Labor movements around the world have consistently used tactics of civil resistance to win concessions for workers throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.


African Americans used civil resistance in their struggle to dissolve segregation in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s.


Polish workers used factory-occupation strikes in 1980 to win the right to organize a free trade union, which was a major victory in a communist country at a time when tens of thousands of Soviet soldiers were stationed there.


The Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos and the Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet were brought down by nonviolent movements in the 1980s.


The anti-apartheid movement in South Africa employed boycotts and other nonviolent sanctions for decades. Nonviolent methods superseded violence in the 1980s to become the driving force that weakened the white-dominated government, forcing it to negotiate a transition.


In 1989 thousands of Chinese mobilized in support of democracy and occupied Tiananmen Square in Beijing—but the movement was suppressed when hardliners in the government took control and ordered violent repression.


In 1989-1990, Eastern Europeans and Mongolians used civilian-based protests to put massive pressure on communist governments, liquidating their hold on power.


After a failed armed insurgency in the mid-late 1970s, East Timorese turned to nonviolent forms of struggle to resist Indonesian occupation of their country. Despite atrocities committed by the Indonesian military, years of a media blackout, and severe repression, successful mass-based civil resistance among East Timorese drew allies from within Indonesia, catalyzed international exposure and pressure for the East Timorese cause, and increasing the costs of Indonesian repression and occupation, which led to an independence referendum in 1999.


In 2000, Serbs ousted Slobodan Milosevic, after a nonviolent movement helped co-opt the police and military, thereby dividing his base of support.


In 2002, citizens in Madagascar organized nonviolently to enforce their presidential election results.


In 2003, Georgians used nonviolent action to expose fraud and enforce election results in their country, and in 2004, Ukrainians did the same.


In 2005, vast protests in Lebanon brought an end to Syrian military control.


In 2006, Nepalis used nonviolent methods to restore democratic rule to their country.


The uprising in Burma in 2007, known as the Saffron revolution, was initiated by Buddhist monks and joined by students, women and political activists. It was subjected to a brutal crackdown. However, three years later, the military began embarking on an unprecedented democratic transition that brought to power Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her political party. The role the Saffron Revolution played in catalyzing this political transition remains up for debate.


The lawyers’ movement in Pakistan between 2007-2009 emerged in response to president Pervez Musharraf’s decision to dismiss the Chief Justice of Pakistan’s Supreme Court. Three years of civil resistance pushing for judicial independence forced Musharraf to reinstate the Chief Justice and led to Musharraf’s fall from power in 2008.


Palestinians in the West Bank continue nonviolent resistance against Israel’s construction of a wall separating Palestinians from their land. Some villages, like Bil’in or Budrus, have become internationally recognizable symbols of this struggle against Israeli occupation.



Iran’s Green movement in 2009 shook the foundations of government that had ruled the country for more than 30 years. The movement was unable to sustain mobilization in the face of violent repression. However, the next presidential elections in 2013 were not subject to falsification and a more moderate candidate won.


In late-2010 and 2011, people’s mobilization started from Tunisia and spread to Egypt and other countries in the region. Unarmed people brought down seemingly irremovable and powerful autocratic leaders, but democratic consolidation after these transitions remains uneven. Some countries, such as Syria, saw their nonviolent movements overtaken by armed resistance with tragic consequences for the population.


In 2014, people of Burkina Faso rose up, led by the popular campaign Balai Citoyen (“Citizen’s Broom”), and ended the rule of autocrat Blaise Compaoré in Burkina Faso, who had ruled the country for 27 years.


In more recent years, there have been nonviolent movements against corruption in countries such as Ukraine, Armenia, Moldova, Guatemala, Brazil, and Cambodia; struggles against authoritarian rule in Algeria, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Belarus, Russia, and Pakistan; nonviolent resistance against occupation in Palestine; for self-determination in West Papua, Western Sahara, and Tibet; for immigrant rights, minority rights, and police accountability and against climate change in the United States; for indigenous rights in Latin America; against violence and the drug war in Mexico; to preserve democracy in Hong Kong and Slovakia; and for women’s rights in India, the Middle East, China and North Africa.

The uprising in Burma in 2007, known as the Saffron revolution, was initiated by Buddhist monks and joined by students, women and political activists. It was subjected to a brutal crackdown. However, three years later, the military began embarking on an unprecedented democratic transition that brought to power Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her political party. The role the Saffron Revolution played in catalyzing this political transition remains up for debate.


The lawyers’ movement in Pakistan between 2007-2009 emerged in response to president Pervez Musharraf’s decision to dismiss the Chief Justice of Pakistan’s Supreme Court. Three years of civil resistance pushing for judicial independence forced Musharraf to reinstate the Chief Justice and led to Musharraf’s fall from power in 2008.


Palestinians in the West Bank continue nonviolent resistance against Israel’s construction of a wall separating Palestinians from their land. Some villages, like Bil’in or Budrus, have become internationally recognizable symbols of this struggle against Israeli occupation.



Iran’s Green movement in 2009 shook the foundations of government that had ruled the country for more than 30 years. The movement was unable to sustain mobilization in the face of violent repression. However, the next presidential elections in 2013 were not subject to falsification and a more moderate candidate won.


In late-2010 and 2011, people’s mobilization started from Tunisia and spread to Egypt and other countries in the region. Unarmed people brought down seemingly irremovable and powerful autocratic leaders, but democratic consolidation after these transitions remains uneven. Some countries, such as Syria, saw their nonviolent movements overtaken by armed resistance with tragic consequences for the population.


In 2014, people of Burkina Faso rose up, led by the popular campaign Balai Citoyen (“Citizen’s Broom”), and ended the rule of autocrat Blaise Compaoré in Burkina Faso, who had ruled the country for 27 years.


In more recent years, there have been nonviolent movements against corruption in countries such as Ukraine, Armenia, Moldova, Guatemala, Brazil, and Cambodia; struggles against authoritarian rule in Algeria, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Belarus, Russia, and Pakistan; nonviolent resistance against occupation in Palestine; for self-determination in West Papua, Western Sahara, and Tibet; for immigrant rights, minority rights, and police accountability and against climate change in the United States; for indigenous rights in Latin America; against violence and the drug war in Mexico; to preserve democracy in Hong Kong and Slovakia; and for women’s rights in India, the Middle East, China and North Africa.

Federal High Court judge orders Lawless DSS to produce 12 IGBOHO associates illegally detained by the agency

Federal High Court judge orders Lawless DSS to produce 12 IGBOHO associates illegally detained by the agency

An Abuja Federal High Court judge has ordered the Lawless DSS to produce #Oduduwa12 illegally detained by the agency by next week Thursday per Justice Obiora!



The Court on Friday granted the applications of the 12 detained aides of Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu in his ruling on the ex parte application before the court, ordered that the Department of State Service should produce the detained aides of Sunday Igboho in court on the next adjourned date.

Justice Egwuatu also ordered the DSS to show cause why the applicants should not be admitted to bail.

The matter was adjourned to July 29 to take place during the court vacation.

Recall that the 12 detained associates of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, had instituted a suit against the Department of State Services and its Director-General, Yusuf Bichi.

The applicants’ counsel, Pelumi Olajengbesi, moved his ex parte motion praying the court for an order “mandating and compelling the respondents to produce the applicants” to enable the court “inquire into the circumstances constituting grounds of their arrest and detention” since July 1, 2021 and where it seems fit, grant applicants bail.”

They also sought the order of the court mandating and compelling the respondents to produce the applicants before the court and “show cause as to why the applicants should not be granted bail in accordance with the provision of Section 32 of Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 and other extant laws in Nigeria.”


Olajengbesi argued that the applicants are citizens of Nigeria with inherent rights.

The ex-parte motion was supported by an eight-paragraph affidavit, exhibit, 11-paragraph affidavit of extreme urgency, affidavit of non-complicity of action, and a written address.
