The Indigenous People of Biafra on Tuesday rejected Justice Binta Nyako as the new judge in the case involving its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
This was contained in statement signed by IPOB’s Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
The group said, “The appointment of Justice Binta Nyako as the trial judge for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case was masterminded by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The appointment came after the harassment and the intimidation of the judges who were working tirelessly to address the country’s injustice perpetrated by the government of the day in Nigeria.”
The group’s statement added, “The government of the contraption called Nigeria assigned her to make sure she jails Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has committed no crime against anybody in Nigeria.
“But we want to ask if the new trial judge, Binta Nyako, will jail people who did not commit any crime against the people?
“We are calling on international community and other wonderful men and women across the globe to mount their watch on the new trial judge assigned to be handling the case concerning the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.”
It said that no amount of blackmail, propaganda and intimidation would stop the agitation for Biafra
“We want to let the world understand that she has started by using the same date the ECOWAS court fixed their own date, 8th of November, 2016, as the day she for the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in a Federal High Court Abuja,” the communiqué also stated.
