Nnamdi Kanu's court hearing on Jan. 29, 2016 was selfish and unfair. The presiding judge Justice John Tsoho was absolutely bias to the extent of repeating Buhari's already passed sentence on Nnamdi Kanu during  his maiden media chat while in the court. Does that not imply that he was reading directly from Buhari's judgement sheet? Buhari voted 100 million Naira for any criminal judge to jail Nnamdi Kanu guilty or not. It is obvious that Justice John Tsoho is the machandise bought with that blood money. It was so annoying and unbelievable that the sitting judge has already found Nnamdi Kanu guilty in a case he never tried him. On January 29, 2016, Biafrans and friends of Biafra were shocked when Justice John Tsoho threatened Nnamdi Kanu repeatedly that 'he will commit the same crime again' and accusing him of being a National security threat. What threat one may ask? The type posed by Bokoharam or the type Buhari posed to Goodluck Jonathan throughout his tenure as Nigeria President. Nnamdi Kanu is being tried for treason, not yet found guilty of the said offence. How then did Justice Tsoho come about the crime which he is claiming Nnamdi Kanu will commit again if granted bail? 

The United Nations Charter on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples shall not just only question Justice John but must defend Prince Nnamdi Kanu stands on his quest for the self determination of his people, anything short of that is meaningless to this Charter. The UN Charter cannot be speedily amended or changed in the Nigerian Judiciary due to selfish interest of any individual or group. If Nigeria should respect Democracy and the rule of law Biafra agitation is legitimate. No one should be killed or jailed for agitating for the Biafra freedom. 

SEE UN DECLARATION: United Nations Charter on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

In the face of the unfolding events and scenario at the court, Biafrans are no longer  satisfied with the sitting judge, Justice John Tsoho because he has breached the protocol of fair hearing on Nnamdi Kanu's case having found him guilty before trial. So what are we waiting for? "A formality trial or mock trial?" Public commentators are saying that Justice John Tsoho is biased and a willing tool for the Tyrant led-government of Buhari to jail Prince Nnamdi Kanu. Having a dual citizenship between Nigeria and Britain is not a crime, but justice John Tsosho denied Nnamdi Kanu bail based on the fact that Buhari has delcared it a crime in Nigeria to have dual Nationality. 

The question is how does having a dual citizenship amount to a threat to national security? How does Nnamdi Kanu who has never killed or destroyed any property be classified as threat to National security while Boko Haram is not a threat to national security? Perhap, because Buhari is sympathetic to Boko Haram and was once appointed as the chief negotiator of Boko Haram during the government of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. Boko Haram is not a threat to National security but Nnamdi Kanu who has not fired a shot is declared a National security threat, simply because he is a Biafran. 

We now ask, where are our senators and house of representatives members? Where are the Ohanezes and the Akaikengas? You are now deaf and dumb while you own son is being lead to the slaughter, while Boko haram who have slaughtered over six million Nigerians, in the assessment of Buhari and Justice John Tsoho are not a National Security threat? We are ashamed of you all.

We the Idigenous People of Biafra IPOB wish to state categorically clear here that we have no confidence in the Nigeria Judiciary, especially on Justice John Tsoho, whom we know is only going to read a script give to him by Buhari before going to London for medical treatment with the instruction to "speed up the case and jail the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu before I return", and John Tsoho is poise to do his master's bidding. But we say NO. If the Nigeria Government is not going to allow Nnamdi Kanu to enjoy the bail granted him earlier by this court we shall no longer continue with the prosecution in which the sitting judge is biased.

Biafra agitation is not a crime. Biafra agitation is legitimate. Biafra agitation is supported by the United Nations Declaration on the rights of Indigenous Peoples. This right does not amount to treason.
