IPOB accuses DSS of deceit over charges against Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB in Nnewi has said that contrary to the misleading reports allegedly sponsored by the Department of State Services, DSS, on the charges preferred against its leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the third and last charge against him borders on importation of a radio transmitter into Nigeria and nothing to do with treasonable felony.

IPOB in a statement signed by its spokespersons Mr. Emma
Nmezu and Dr Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, said: ” The
third and last frivolous charge brought against the leader of
IPOB by DSS agents borders on importation of equipment into Nigeria.

“The charge read, “that you, Nnamdi Kanu, between the
months of March and April, 2015 imported into Nigeria and
kept in Ubulusiuzor town in Ihiala local Government Area of
Anambra State within the jurisdiction of  this honourable
court, a radio transmitter known as TRAM 5OL concealed in a container which you described as containing household
items, which you so declared and that, you thereby
committed an offence punishable under section 47(2) (a)
of the Customs and Excise Management Act”.

According to IPOB, “we are publishing verbatim, the
referenced section-47 of the Customs and Excise
Management Act (CAP C45 L.F.N. 2004).CAP C45 L.F.N.
2004: CUSTOMS AND EXCISE MANAGEMENT ACT (Part III
Section-47) and Penalty for improper importation of goods,
for clarity purposes.

“If any person lands, or unloads in Nigeria, or removes from
their place of importation or from any approved wharf,
examination station, customs station or customs area, any
goods chargeable with a duty which has not been paid; or
any goods imported contrary to any prohibition; or assists or is otherwise concerned in such landing, unloading or removal; or imports or is concerned in importing any goods contrary to any prohibition whether or not the goods are landed or unloaded, then, if he does so with intent to evade any such duty or any prohibition, he shall be sentenced to
imprisonment for five years without the option of a fine.

If any person imports or causes to be imported any goods
concealed in a container holding goods of a different
description; or directly or indirectly imports or causes to be
imported or entered, any goods found, whether before or after delivery, not to correspond with the entry delivered thereof, he shall be sentenced to imprisonment for five years without the option of a fine.

“Having cited the charges and the accompanying laws, let us now explain the charges in its simplest form as follows, “that Nnamdi Kanu imported an item into Nigeria between the months of March and April in the year 2015.

“That the item imported is a radio transmitter called TRAM
5OL.That Nnamdi Kanu kept the item (radio transmitter
called TRAM 5OL) at Ubulusiuzor town in Ihiala local
Government Area of Anambra State. That the item (radio
transmitter called TRAM 5OL) was concealed in a container
and that Nnamdi Kanu described that container as containing household items. That by declaring the item falsely, Nnamdi Kanu has committed an offence as described in section-47(2a).That Nnamdi Kanu should be punished for the offence which carries a prison term of five years without the option of fine.

“IPOB urged the public to note that on the charge-sheet, the prosecution will be based specifically on section-47(2a) only and the DSS agents are very sure that the item was ‘imported or caused to be imported’ by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and duties paid, wondering where issue of treasonable felony is coming from.”

IPOB promised that it will ask questions in the concluding
part of their enlightenment series on the frivolous charges
against their leader, to ensure that the public were not
deceived by DSS.
