The protest which was organised by the Abia state coordinator of IPOB witnessed great multitude who came from far and near to not only show their resentment towards the invocation of sharia law into Kanu's case by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High court, Abuja, but to also call for his unconditional release as ordered by her learned colleague, Justice A.F Ademola.

This protest is coming few days to the upcoming court date of the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu. Recall that the case was adjourned to 25th of April, following Binta's ruling for secret trial in the case despite several admonitions and opposition from Kanu's legal team. Binta Nyako had on several occasions reiterated that Nnamdi Kanu will be tried according to Sharia law irrespective, resulting to the ongoing protest today in Aba, Abia State.
It could also be recalled that the leader of the Concerned Nigerians group, Prince Deji Adeyanju alongside his comrade Mr. Brian was arrested yesterday the 21st April, 2017 while staging #NoToSecretTrial protest against Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian police and are being detained as at the time of filing this report. Biafra Writers is using this medium to commend such bravery considering what the group stands for.
