Nnamdi Kanu, the charismatic leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) goes to court today, and we hope the right thing will be done by the courts to grant him freedom once again. The major decision will be whether witness will be allowed to do testify in court hooded.
Murderous Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari and his fellow Fulani hegemonic tribesmen at Nigeria’s illegal Department of State Security have been making that demand of Nigerian courts (which have sullied other trials before now). They have been hoping it would give them the opportunity to achieve their evil agenda of jailing the Biafran leader. But Biafrans have rejected it as dubious and illegal.
Today, it stands to be seen whether Justice Binta Nyako, Judge of the Federal High Court will allow Justice to reign, making sure that those who accused a man accused openly in public (and hopes to do so in court) would not be allowed to do so in hiding.
Two things should guide her judgment. One is the fact that fake individuals may be employed (which Buhari is known to have done severally in history and his fellow Fulani murderers) to sway justice. The second is that it is alien to Nigerian law, which takes its root from British common law.
