Justice John Tsoho, the current judge presiding over Nnamdi Kanu’s case, has consistently displayed an irrefutable level of incompetence towards his legal duties. John Tsoho has on several occasions contradicted his own edict, all in an effort to hinder Nnamdi Kanu’s release. Approving a masquerade to testify against the accused after the request was dismissed by his court in a previous court ruling is an undisguised show of deficient legal practice by Tsoho.
The court defines bias as favoritism, inclination of a judge, arbitrator, predisposition, prospective juror, or anyone making a judicial decision, against or in favor of one of the parties or a class of persons. This can be shown by remarks, decisions contrary to fact, reason or law, or other unfair conduct. John Tsoho accepted Buhari's offer to become the "chief justice of federation" ONLY if he can convict Nnamdi Kanu, when it is obvious Kanu committed no crime is a clear illustration that he Tsoho is a corrupt judge.

A judge who demonstrates bias is amoral and dishonourable; he has no regards for the ethics of his profession and the oath of office makes no meaning to him. From recent events, it is evident that Nnamdi Kanu cannot get a fair hearing from John Tsoho; Tsoho is bias, partial, corrupt and not worthy to handle the case anymore.
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, has on two occasions since his arrest on 14th October 2015, been granted bail twice by competent courts and the bail conditions fully met. The two judges who ruled for Nnamdi Kanu's immediate release, argued that after thorough investigations, there is no substantial evidence to keep Nnamdi Kanu detained.

Consequently, the same judge Tsoho denied Nnamdi Kanu bail with the reasons that he is a 'threat to national security'. To this end, one would ask: What threat? Nnamdi Kanu is just a freedom fighter, he has not in any way threatened the lives of Nigerians nor planned treason; he is a Biafran activist working assiduously for the restoration of the Sovereign State of Biafra. Why was Buhari not arrested for campaigning for CHANGE; the same thing Nnamdi Kanu campaigned for which is Biafra independence?
Why was he not arrested when he said "God willing, I will continue to fight for the implementation of a sharia throughout the country, despite knowing that Nigeria is a secular state?
I Hope the world can see the gimmicks Buhari and his tainted judge Tsoho are showcasing to deprive this prisoner of conscience (Nnamdi Kanu) justice even when it is crystal clear he is innocent of the treasonable felony charge against him.
Justice John Tsoho, of federal high court Abuja ruled that Nnamdi Kanu cannot be granted bail because he possesses dual citizenship of Nigeria and Britain. This is unbelievable. Suffice to say that Tsoho is not conversant with Nigerian constitution, because if he was, he would not have made such a mockery of himself and the Nigerian judiciary at large, using that as an excuse. The Nigerian constitution stipulated and permitted her citizens to have at least dual citizenship, and need I remind Tsoho, that Buhari's daughter, Zahra Buhari possesses dual passport? This could be best described as "Hypocrisy".

John Tsoho through incompetence and outright corruption, has been frustrating the release of Nnamdi Kanu via his pay-master (Buhari).
IPOB cannot get justice if Tsoho still presides over the case of her leader Nnamdi Kanu, therefore he must be recused.
Fair and competent judge is what Biafra and her citizens require over its leader's case coming up on 26 September 2016 and justice must prevail. Fair and impartial justice requires that judges act without regard to the identity of parties or their attorney's, the judge's own interests permits him to step away when there is "actual conflict or bias or other impropriety or when a reasonable disinterested person would conclude that an appearance of impropriety exists".
John Tsoho is hereby advised to step aside and remove himself off Nnamdi Kanu's case, else IPOB will make sure he drops his wig in the most dishonourable manner...that is a promise!

Nnamdi Kanu has committed no crime and is not guilty of all the charges levied against him. Nnamdi Kanu's crimes are: demanding for the freedom of Biafra, speaking the truth without reservation and exercising his rights to self determination. Self determination is the right of every indigenous people and that is what Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans are demanding for... in a civilized manner and approach; not war. IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu have never asked for war, we simply are saying: "give us back our ancient nation".
IPOB hereby demand for a new judge in the case of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra. The international communities, all Human Rights activists must and should join hands with Biafrans to stop the dictator Hitler Buhari of Nigeria, from further intentional extermination of Biafrans. Buhari should obey court courts orders and release Nnamdi Kanu alongside two Biafrans in detention with him, namely David Nwawuisi and Benjamin Madubugwu.
Justice must be done! Nnamdi Kanu must be released! Biafra must be free!
