It has become a norm in Nigeria to intimidate, harass and blackmail judges into perverting justice in the favor of the dictator-in-chief, Muhammadu Buhari, against the rule of law. Justice John Tsoho is an example; he was used by Muhammadu Buhari to remand Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in Kuje prison against a court order to release him unconditionally.
A careful observation in the last court proceedings of Nnamdi Kanu's case; on 17th November 2016, at the Federal High Court Abuja, revealed that “the hand of the monkey has entered the soup." Dictator Muhammadu Buhari have started manifesting his dictatorship on Justice Binta Nyako, to satisfy his unquenchable thirst to deny Kanu bail and jail him.

It was observed also that Justice Binta ordered that nobody should capture video of the proceedings or image of Nnamdi Kanu, the seizure of electronic devices such as phones, camera and electronic devices. She made orders targeted at intimidating the supporters of Kanu and IPOB officers who were present in their large numbers to stand by their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Justice Binta should know that for ones name to be ‘a cast-in-gold', there must be a sacrifice made. Justice Binta must resist Buhari’s harassment, blackmail and intimidation now, before it becomes too late for her. Justice demands that Nnamdi Kanu be released unconditionally as the court has ordered. The world is expecting Justice Binta to uphold the rule of law and not the will of Dictator Muhammadu Buhari.
Justice Binta Nyako must know that the eyes of the great Indigenous People of Biafra are watching her closely from all rounds. The International Community is not blinking on Kanu’s case because he is a prisoner of conscience and an icon of international importance. It is time to let Kanu go. Anything less than the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu amounts to international disgrace for Justice Binta; more intimidation for the judiciary and more calamity for Nigeria.
