According to the dialy Sun,the Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB) has decided to support Patience Jonathan in fighting EFCC.
The spokesperson of the group, Chima “Phillip Effiong” Osuji called the act “the undue harassment and campaign of calumny masterminded by the EFCC against Patience Jonathan.”
“TRIPOB believes that under the current political dispensation in Nigeria, Mrs. Jonathan cannot obtain fair and impartial judgment. Furthermore, by virtue of the enviable political height which the Goodluck Jonathan family has attained, it would be most advisable if Mrs Jonathan goes outside for relief because, we strongly believe that, there is a premeditated plot to humiliate and disgrace the former First Lady.”
“We therefore commend international lawyer and human rights activist, Mr Timipa Jenkins Okponipere for the wise decision to drag the EFCC before the African Commission of Human and Peoples Rights based in Banjul, The Gambia, if the EFCC failed to stop the harassment of Mrs. Jonathan within 14 days. It is a welcome decision.”
