I’ll Try You Secretly, Jail You and Nothing’ll Happen – Justice Binta Nyako Blasts Nnamdi Kanu
The trial of the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu took a new turn yesterday after a Federal High Court judge ruled on an application for secret trial by the Department of State Services (DSS).
After the judgement over the matter, Justice Binta Nyako, made her ruling that witnesses in the ongoing trial of Kanu would be protected behind a screen, a vexed Kanu, replying from the dock said he will not be subjected to a secret trial by the federal government.
Kanu said: “I will not be tried in the secret, this is not a Sharia court, I must be tried in an open court!” Kanu snapped back at Justice Nyako.
Continuing in anger, the IPOB leader said: “Buhari went public and he accused me in public now he wants to try me secretly, I will not accept that,” Kanu said.
