Kanu and colleagues

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra is now in court with his colleagues, answering to accusations of treason by Muhammadu Buhari’s Nigerian government.

After a Brief Delay, at about 9: 52am, the Judge, John Tosho came into the court room, and took some time to await the prosecutors from the State Security Service (SSS) and the accused persons.  Then at about 10: 06am, the SSS men came in with them, Nnamdi Kanu and his other colleagues.
The prosecuting lawyer announced that he came with his witnesses, that they refused to come forward to testing, fearing for their lives. He said they complained of receiving threats from Biafrans and would not want to come out without cover insisting that their lives were worth more to them than the trial. He said they want the court to grant them some secrecy so that they would be able to communicate through writing on paper.
Kanu: feeling good in court
There were some hush-hush voices in the court as the people wondered why they needed secrecy if the people already knew them and had been threatening them.The Biafran lawyer told the court that he had also been threatened by the SSS, and yet he was still in court.
Earlier, the SSS denied Biafrans entrance into the court room, when IPOB lawyer Ejiofor asked that they be allowed to witness the case of their brother. But Ejiofor reminded them that the judge had granted that as long as the court was empty that the people should be allowed to go in and witness the proceedings.

  1. Wonders shall never end in this Niger-area. This DSS people with their lawyers are threats to the lives of people. They are full of disobedience to the court and to the Judge himself. Their insistence on masking whoever their witnesses are, showed their utmost stupidity, wickedness and falsehood. If those so-called witnesses are afraid and their lives being more precious than the trial, what about those who they are witnessing against. Are their lives not more important than the trial also? Those so-called witnesses need to be arrested with immediate effect. Instead of dragging this case which is degrading the integrity of the Judiciary in Niger-area, the judge supposed to end, discharge and acquit all the defendants, because the DSS is not serious with their case.
    In a nutshell, the so-called witnesses, the DSS and their prosecuting lawyers are all criminals and they are to be arrested, because they are not only interfering grossly on the judicial system but also violating human rights. Can they prove that their lives are in danger?
