JUST IN: For the 3rd time Nnamdi Kanu rejects judge over his case by jchima14(: 6:58 pm On Oct 25, 2016
– For the third time the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has rejected the judge assigned to preside over his case
– Kanu said the appointment of Justice Binta Nyako is an attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to jail him
– The IPOB leader also leveled grave allegations against the new judge
The Indigenous People of Biafra has rejected a new judge assigned to its leader Nnamdi Kanu.
The group in a statement said assignment of Justice Binta Nyako by the chief judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja is an attempt by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to jail its leader.
The group also raised concerns over various kinds of relationship between the new judge and President Buhari.
Justice Nyako, a wife to the former governor of Adamawa state Murtala Nyako was assigned by the chief judge of the Federal High Court Ibrahim Auta to take over Kanu’s matter.
Justice Nyako’s appointed as the presiding judge over Kanu’s matter came after the IPOB leader had appeared before three judges who had previously presided over his case.
Kanu was expected to be arraigned before Justice Nyako on Tuesday, November 8.
Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor had told earlier told Nigerianbreakingnews.com.ng that the matter was for arraignment and hearing of bail application for his client.
The first judge to handle Kanu’s case was Justice Shuiabu Usman of a Magistrate Court in Wuse zone 2, Abuja.
However, Justice Usman squashed all the charges against Kanu after the prosecutor, the Department of State Services (DSS) filed a motion for lack the court’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.
The case was later filed before a Federal High Court where it was assigned to Justice Adeniyi Ademola.
But on assumption of trial, Kanu, even before taking his plea, in an objection said he lacked confidence in the court.
After Kanu’s statement, Justice Ademola hands off the matter.
He also returned the case file to the chief judge of the Federal High Court Ibrahim Auta and the matter was later reassigned to Justice John Tsoho of the same court.
But after an alleged conflicting ruling giving on the issue of secret trial in favour of the DSS, Kanu in a petition asked the NJC to investigate Justice Tsoho.
He also filed an application asking the judge to disqualify himself from the matter. Finally, on September, 26, Justice Tsoho budged to Kanu’s application, he disqualified himself from the matter.
The IPOB leader is facing a three-count charge of treasonable felony among others leveled against him by the Department of State Services.
Below is the full statement by IPOB:
The indigenous people of Biafra IPOB worldwide and the directorate of State DOS raises alarm over the assignment of the new trial judge for Nnamdi Kanu case by the chief judge of the federal republic of Nigeria.
The appointment of Justice Hajiya Binta F.M Nyako as the trial judge for mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case was masterminded by the government of the president Muhammadu Buhari.
The appointment came after the harassment and the intimidation of the judges who were working tirelessly to address the country’s injustice perpetrated by the government of the day in Nigeria.
It was observed that the trial judge justice HAJIYA BINTA F.M NYAKO was born on 14th day of May1959, she is a sister to the president of Nigeria Gen Muhammadu Buhari, her state of origin is KATSINA STATE and her local government is RIMI. She became a judge on the 28 day of July 2000 and married to one man in Taraba state.
The government of the contraption called Nigeria assigned her to make sure she jail mazi Nnamdi Kanu who committed no crime against anybody in Nigeria but we want to ask if the new trial judge Binta Nyako will jail people who did not commit any crime against the people.
Again, the new trial judge Binta Nyako Hajiya was mandated to the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra mazi Nnamdi Kanu on that he is saying the truth concerning the restoration of God’s nation Biafra.
BINTA would have been one of the arrested judges over the $2m she allegedly took from JIDE OMOKORE to grant scandalous bail to the oil magnate who stole over $6b from Nigeria on the 8 day of July 2016, but was spared on one condition (WHICH IS TO JAIL NNAMDI KANU).
We are calling on international community and other wonderful men and women across the globe to mount their watch on the new trial judge assigned to be handling the case concerning the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB.
Furthermore, we want to let the world understand that she have started by using the same date the ECOWAS court fixed their own date 8th of November 2016 as the day she fix for the case for the worldwide leader of the indigenous people of Biafra mazi Nnamdi Kanu in federal high court Abuja.
Nevertheless, we also observed that the BBC correspondent in Nigeria is from Daura that is why they don’t air Biafra news because he fills that his brother Gen. Muhammadu Buhari will be reduced by the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB worldwide.
In line with this, the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB worldwide believes that there is no amount of blackmail, propaganda and intimidation that can stop the agitation for the Biafra process which God Almighty (Chukwu Okike Abiama) has ordained.
