Again, IPOB rejects new judge assigned to Nnamdi Kanu

25 October 2016, 17:30

Anambra - The Indigenous People of Biafra has rejected a new judge assigned to its leader Nnamdi Kanu.

The group in a statement said assignment of Justice Binta Nyako by the chief judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja is an attempt by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to jail its leader.

The group also raised concerns over various kinds of relationship between the new judge and President Buhari.

Justice Nyako, a wife to the former governor of Adamawa state Murtala Nyako was assigned by the chief judge of the Federal High Court Ibrahim Auta to take over Kanu’s matter.

Justice Nyako’s appointed as the presiding judge over Kanu’s matter came after the IPOB leader had appeared before three judges who had previously presided over his case.

Kanu was expected to be arraigned before Justice Nyako on Tuesday, November 8.

The first judge to handle Kanu’s case was Justice Shuiabu Usman of a Magistrate Court in Wuse zone 2, Abuja.

However, Justice Usman squashed all the charges against Kanu after the prosecutor, the Department of State Services (DSS) filed a motion for lack the court’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.

The case was later filed before a Federal High Court where it was assigned to Justice Adeniyi Ademola.

The IPOB leader is facing a three-count charge of treasonable felony among others leveled against him by the Department of State Services.
