As another court date draws near for the continued debate on the trumped up charges leveled against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and two others, it is important to let the (In)Justice John Tsoho, the presiding judge of the Federal High Court, Abuja to be aware of the consequences of his actions and inactions as the proceedings begin.
Biafra Writers use this opportunity to let John Tsoho know the need to guard his judgement come the next court case on June 21st to 24th, 2016.
Tsoho on the first hearing on shielding the witnesses, rejected and over-ruled the suggestion but later reversed his position to allow witnesses to be masqueraded, which marks the beginning of perversion of justice.

The judiciary is independent and a separate entity from the Executive and as such should be able to discharge its duties without fear, intimidation and nepotism. Tsoho should be aware that any of his ruling will either worsen or improve the already battered image of Nigeria's democracy. The international community is watching and Biafrans are keenly observing the outcome of that case and will go any length to obtain justice.
The continued bail denial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and the unsubstantiated criminal charges against him by the DSS are clear indications that the Judiciary is under manipulation and democracy raped by the present government of Buhari who have boasted that he will never let Nnamdi Kanu be free even though competent courts have ordered and granted him bail on two different occasions.
The DSS and its counsel accused Nnamdi Kanu of treasonable felony which they lack the evidence to substantiate the allegations. In law, a person is said to have committed treason and treasonable felony when he levies a war against a country or intimidate the president to abdicate his position as the president.
It is also a known fact that African Hitler, Buhari committed treason in December, 1983 when he overthrew the democratically elected government of Shehu Shagari and have never been charged to court or made to face the law. Buhari is the main guilty party of the crime he is accusing Nnamdi Kanu of and should be convicted, because it is said that "he who must come to equity must come with clean hands."

Nnamdi Kanu has not in any way caused war or incited any group of people to fight the Nigerian government or cause any public unrest. Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB has never violated any law or engaged Nigerian securities in any combat even when they, IPOB, are being arrested and killed by the Nigerian Armed Forces.
He only demanded the freedom of his people from the continued injustice, subjugation and other inhumane atrocities meted against the Biafran people. It is important to remind Justice John Tsoho that self-determination is a legal right as enshrined in the UN Charter which Nigeria is a signatory to and that is what Nnamdi Kanu has exercised.

The judiciary is an independent organ and remains the last hope of the common man. Justice John Tsoho should make sure he protects and defends the Judiciary, of which he is under oath to uphold irrespective of the parties involved without fear or favor. He should rescind his consent to allow masqueraded witnesses testify in the court of law, which is illegal and a violation of court proceedings in every sane country, because it is unjust to accuse someone in public and testify against him behind the screen; there is need for unbiased and fair judgment because Nnamdi Kanu is a human right activist and a freedom crusader whose only offence was exercising his fundamental human rights as enshrined in the constitution and should without further delay be released to save the already battered image of the judiciary and the government of Nigeria.
Justice John Tsoho should not allow himself to be cowed into making decisions that will cost him his career and reputation by doing the bidding of his pay master who has no respect for the rule of law. He should refuse bribe or any inducement that will make him to subvert justice. Whether or not Justice Tsoho will heed to this advise or not, we are about to find out soon.
Biafrans and the entire humanity are watching. Justice must prevail.
