Admiral Murtala Nyako, husband to Nnamdi Kanu’s trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako is currently being docked for financial misappropriation and money laundering; an offence he is alleged to have committed as the former governor of Adamawa state.
The former governor who is also a retired Naval officer and his son Abdulaziz Nyako forming two notorious gangster, was arraigned at the Federal High Court, Abuja, but the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on 37-count charge of alleged corruption which includes abuse of public funds, embezzlement, looting, laundering, gross misconduct, etc. They have since been found guilty as charged.
It was revealed that under Governor Nyako's watch, fraudulent activities, looting of public treasuries by top politicians in Adamawa and diversion of state funds was exceeding and an order of the day during his tenure as governor of the state.

Murtala Nyako and son, Abdul, alleged to have siphoned a whopping sum of 40 billion naira was never "tried in secret", neither was "secret trial" nor "Sharia law" established as a mode of trial in their court case.
One of the witnesses, Mr. Chinedu Ayogu, a compliance officer with Diamond Bank who gave his testimony in court of how the former governor and son diverted state's funds to run their five private companies, was never made to appear on mask nor behind the screen during his testimonies.
One wonders why then would injustice Binta Nyako, Kanu's trial judge will insist that his witnesses must testify behind screen or wearing masks with their faces and identity being withheld from the public and press. Again, as if that wasn't enough, one wonders why this obviously biased judge will introduce Sharia law in Nnamdi Kanu's case in a supposed democratic dispensation believed to be in practice in Nigeria.

Could this be the starting point of the Islamization agenda of the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to promote and escalate Islam and Sharia across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria even when it is against one's faith and belief? It is on record that Muhammadu Buhari promised to spread Islam, Sharia and forcefully islamize Biafrans(Christians) and he now intend to begin this miscarriage of justice in a common court of law where Nnamdi Kanu, a Biafra activist cum freedom fighter is currently being tried.
Why must Nnamdi Kanu be tried in secret under a Sharia law with only five (5) count charges against him, which none of them bothers on corruption, financial crimes, money laundering, terrorism, nor looting unlike the notorious husband of the partial judge, Binta Murtala Nyako with 37-count solid charges starring at him.

Is Justice Binta trying to play a fast game in conjunction with the fanatical Islamic Head of state, Buhari, using Nnamdi Kanu's trial as a willing tool? Is Binta trying to outsmart Biafrans by reversing the order on secret trial which was previously quashed by Kanu's lead counsel?
Sharia law is the law of Islam, only practicable in the Northern Nigeria where Islam is said to be a predominant religion. It has no basis in a common court of law, most especially in the trial of Nnamdi Kanu as he's not a practicing Muslim nor an Islamic worshipper, the last time I checked. More so, Justice Binta’s husband, Admiral Murtala Nyako and son were never tried in secret even when the duo are staunch practicing Muslims.
For the avoidance of doubt, on two separate occasions, Nnamdi Kanu was never found guilty of committing treasonable felony as charged. As a matter of fact, he was acquitted and granted an unconditional bail unlike Murtala Nyako that was found guilty of corruption as charged by the EFCC and Court, yet he was not locked up, tried in secrecy, nor was Sharia law used in his trial.

Biafrans are asking, why is Nnamdi Kanu still in detention despite proven not guilty? Injustice Binta Nyako should tell the world why Nnamdi Kanu must undergo a secret trial under a Sharia law, if not, such incitement of hers will be regarded as trash.
There's a saying that goes this way, “what is good for the goose is equally good for the gander.” To help balance the equation, there is every need for Justice Binta's husband, Admiral Murtala Nyako who was found wanting by the EFCC, to also be subjected to secret trial and also introduce Sharia law in his case as was recommended for Nnamdi Kanu.
Murtala Nyako must be tried in secret, Sharia law must be brought in his financial crime and fraud case if not, justice is raped in Nigeria.
Binta Nyako has proven time without number that she is predisposed to thwarting the law in order to please her master, Buhari and as such Unqualified to handle Kanu’s case.
