The right to be tried by an impartial judge is deeply embedded in Nigeria's jurisprudence. In fact, this right has often been considered to be the “cornerstone” of the Nigerian legal system especially when litigants and their counsel believe that a Judge has become biased or prejudiced against them, or in favor of an opposing party.
Consequently, even in those jurisdictions which have laws on the books which authorize parties to seek to disqualify Judges on the basis of bias, as opposed to interest in the cause, it is typically only in those rare instances when a Judge verbalizes bias against a party or its counsel that a motion to recuse can successfully be made on this ground.

In part, because of their recognition of the fact that judicial bias can seldom be proved, legislatures in many jurisdictions have authorized parties to seek disqualification on the basis of an “appearance” of judicial bias or impropriety. Based on that motion, IPOB hereby calls for Judge Tsoho to be disqualified, and recuse himself off the case of Nnamdi Kanu because he is biased.
John Tsoho cannot deny the fact that he is a PUPPET. He allowed himself to be maneuvered by a jihadist head of state, Buhari - without certificate, plainly because of material gains. He obviously cannot object his unspeakable ruling allowing masquerades to testify behind screen against Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra after he earlier kicked/ruled against it before cameras that masquerades cannot testify in his court room. Tsoho ridiculed himself, his career, his years of service and judiciary at large the moment he joined forces and collaborated with killers of innocent Biafrans - Buhari, to convict and deny Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader bail and justice.

The Saying that judiciary is the last hope of a common man is not applicable to the Nigerian state, Nigeria is a state where Judges act like a "prosecuting Attorney rather than a Judge", which, of course, is not right. Nigeria is a state where culprits, terrorists, killers, embezzlers and looters of public funds walk freely because of IMMUNITY, whilst the innocent perish in various Nigerian prisons.
Justice John Tsoho is the clear example of my assertions. He is the vitiated Judge a tyrannical boss, Buhari hired to convict the prisoner of conscience, Nnamdi Kanu after being discharged and acquitted by two sovereign jurisdictions. Tsoho was on a right track initially when he moved Kanu, and other two defendants - David Nwawuisi and Benjamin Madubugwu, from DSS custody to Kuje prison. Thereafter, he was struck to carry out illegal actions of Buhari to deny Nnamdi Kanu justice even when he merited it. This is quite absurd and extremely ridiculous. It portrays lack of reasoning, stupidity, unprofessionalism and ignorance.

On 26th September, 2016, Nnamdi Kanu will be appearing at the Federal High Court, Abuja, once again. IPOB do not have faith on Justice John Tsoho's judgements. We vividly can't get justice if corrupt John Tsoho still presides over Kanu's case. Indigenous people of Biafra can no longer condone the excesses of debased Judge Tsoho. Therefore, he is warned and adviced to recuse himself and steer clear off Nnamdi Kanu's case else he will be doomed.
In furtherance, IPOB verbally opine they can't be a party to incompetent, conspiratorial and unintelligent biased Judge John Tsoho in his sluggish, conflicting and convicting judgements. All we ask for is fairness and an incorruptible Judge to preside over Nnamdi Kanu's case, which is fast-approaching.
