The Judiciary in Nigeria appears not to be ready to gain their independence from Executive arm of Government. The manipulation and Executive interference in Judicial department can only be described as a sham.

The ongoing trial of Nnamdi Kanu and other Biafran activist before Binta Nyako is nothing but a Nollywood Judicial theatrical display. How on earth can a sitting Judge turn herself to a prosecution Lawyer and Witness?  How on earth can we describe a situation where a sitting Judge will feign ignorance of facts before Local and International Media? It is clear to everyone that the trial Judge is acting under an instruction of what the outcome of the trial will be, even before commencement. 

The trial Judge after several months of judicial masturbation unwillingly gave Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is standing trial before her court a demonic and unconstitutional Bail Conditions.  Hopefully she expected a situation where such bail conditions would not be met or fulfilled but interestingly and to her bewilderment the conditions were met.

The trial judge cannot pretend not to be aware that the State shot itself by resorting to Self Help when they invaded the home of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with a view to eliminating him. The trial judge cannot pretend not seeing several Newspaper headlines to that effect. The trial judge cannot pretend not to be aware of the recorded visuals supporting that bloody invasion by the Nigerian Army. But because the trial Judge is doing the bidding of State Executive Actors, expected in her heart that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should have remained in His house and be killed thus giving her room to conduct a Post-humous trial.

Justice Binta Nyako, with all material evidence before the world refused to accept a motion that will interrogate the activities of the State through the Nigerian Army with regards to Nnamdi Kanu's disappearance. This shameless trial Judge even went as far as putting the sureties to trial without digging deep to know what happened to Nnamdi Kanu and reasons why he is no longer within public reach. The ongoing trial of Nnamdi Kanu before Binta Nyako is nothing but a script being played out. How on earth can a trial Judge revoke Bail of somebody standing trial before her, knowing fully well, that the life of the defendant was seriously at risk and even worse because the State security that was supposed to give protect to him were the same people mandated to assassinate him by the Presidency. How can a judge refuse to listen to a motion centred on giving clarification to that effect?

Justice Binta Nyako must not continue to preside over that case, her actions are a major embarrassment to the Judiciary, her actions to a large extent makes the present Judiciary a complete sham. The NJC must save Nigeria from judicial suicide and restore the dignity of the hallowed temple of Justice before it is too late. The trial before Binta Nyako must not be seen from Nnamdi Kanu quest for a sovereign state for Biafra, instead the trial must be seen from the stand point of Executive interference in the judicial system. The global world is following development with keen interest. The global community will not partner with Nigeria investment-wise with such level of judicial criminality. No wonder why many innocent citizens suffer unduly in the hands of state actor's.

As we speak the CJN is suffering from the same Brutality from the Nigerian state actor's and the same Judiciary.  The earlier we come to terms that Nigeria Judiciary is in comatose the better. 

In Conclusion, Justice Binta Nyako must hands off Nnamdi Kanu's case or the state should be ready to face the consequences of this atrocious act.
