BIAFRA: NNAMDI KANU DELAYED FROM GOING TO COURT BY PRISON OFFICIALS: INSISTED ON APPEARING IN BIAFRAN ATTIRES: JOHN TSOHO STEPS DOWN

Monday 26 September 2016

The presiding judge, Justice John Tsoho, arrived exactly at 10am. This was followed immediately with the introduction of all the legal team and representatives from both the defendants' and prosecution counsel. The legal representatives of both parties arrived court earlier before the Justice John Tsoho. The lawyers to Nnamdi Kanu and the other accused are Barr Chuks Muoma [SAN], Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, while I. E. Eseme [Esq] and Maxwell Okpara represented Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, appeared gallantly in court on 26th September 2016, on white traditional attire and full of smiles, after being delayed in prison due to insistence to put on his Biafra clothes and shoes, which eventually was denied him. He was accompanied by the second and third defendant, Mr Benjamin Madubugwu and Mr David Nwawuisi.

The DSS had on the 18th of December 2015, filed a three-count fresh charge of treasonable felony, managing an unlawful society and concealing goods in a container against the accused. This was hurriedly filed barely 24 hours after Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja Division, ordered Kanu's unconditional release.

Ridiculously, Labaran afterwards expressed that he was not able to fully go through the motion filed by Kanu's defence team with reasons that the motion is voluminous.

Recall that Kanu's defence team has submitted this motion to the court since 20th June 2016 which the court promised to study it and react to it in the next court session, 26 September 2016.

Reacting to this, Barr Muoma expressed "I have been vindicated by the court records, I have also observed that nothing could be obtained from this application. "

In the same manner, I. E. Eseme representing the second defendant stated that they do not have confidence in Tsoho's court and suggested that the case be taken to another court emphasizing that the right of the defendants is paramount. He also lamented that it is unbelievable to realise that a motion filed since 20th June 2016 is yet to be served to the applicants.

In response to these, Justice Tsoho expressed his dismay at the utterances from the defence lawyers while denying that he has no interest in Nnamdi Kanu's case.

To this end, Justice Tsoho ruled that he will return the case file of the defendants to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court for possible assigning of the case to another judge.
