The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu has made it known that he would uncover privileged insights that are equipped for sinking Nigeria. Kanu gave the risk at his continued trial on Tuesday.
In the Tuesday’s ruling, Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja granted the Federal Government the nod to shield identities of witnesses who she said would enter and exit the courtroom through a special door and billed to testify against Nnamdi Kanu.
However, Kanu immediately rejected the court ruling and insisting that it was against the tenets of Justice and fair hearing.
“I won’t stand this travesty of Justice, Buhari spoke in public, he accused me in public, I must also be allowed to stand my trial in public, this is nonsense, I will give testimony before this court by the time I finish there will be no Nigeria. this is not a Sharia court, it is a court that operates under the common law, there will be no screening of witnesses, no fake identities or fake addresses. I cannot be tried in secret, No! Nnamdi Kanu cannot be jailed in secret! They are mad. Why must I be tried in secrecy by a government that does not obey court orders.
he added, “They are killing my people in public, after killing my people they want to try me in private? That person is mad, I won’t allow it”.
The IPOB leader is facing anti-count charge alongside three other pro-Biafra agitators, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi. The Charges against the accused persons border on reasonable felony and their alleged involvement in acts of terrorism.
The defendants had earlier alleged plot by the Federal Government to import foreigners to testify against them.
