IPOB wants Justice Tsoho off Kanu case

26 September 2016, 13:01

Delta - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has asked Justice John Terhemba Tsoho to resign or be sacked following the alleged violations of the legal rights of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The group noted Kanu had remained in lengthy detention, partly because Tsoho in his first ruling in January denied him bail under controversial circumstances.

The judge ruled Kanu was a threat to national security and if released, might again commit the same offence he is accused of.

He raised fears there was a probability Kanu might skip bail because he possessed dual citizenship.

Kanu, who also holds British citizenship, is facing charges of "criminal conspiracy, intimidation and membership of an illegal organization.”

IPOB further noted ruled that items belonging to Kanu should not be returned to him even when such items were not listed as part of the before the courts.

“From the facts above, it is crystal clear that the Hon. Justice John Tsoho lacks the moral, ethical, and judicial burden to continue as the trial Judge on this case,” said Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, spokesperson for IPOB.

He recommended the case be transferred to another judge.

“Nnamdi Kanu looks forward to battling the DSS in court under an unbiased trial Judge and we are confident that victory shall be that of Nnamdi Kanu’s.”

The Department of State Services (DSS) arrested Kanu in Lagos last October.
