IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu appearing in Federal High Court Abuja

December 1, 2016.
By Ken Pat

Justice Binta Nyako has ruled that Nnamdi Kanu will not be granted bail today, the 1st of December 2016, at the Abuja high court. This unsurprising judgement which is in line with Muhammadu Buhari's instruction in his media chat is suspected to be in exchange for the pardon of Justice Binta's husband who was indicted for the embezzlement of public funds.

Recall that pressure was consistently mounted on Binta by Buhari and DSS as reported on Biafra Today on the 26th of November. That pressure has yielded its desired effect on the Judge as expedient in her questionable ruling today.

In denying  Kanu bail, Justice Binta read the argument presented by the defendants' lawyers,  including the United Nations' Charter on rights to self-determination, and then she argued that it will be improper to grant bail to the defendants, maintaining that granting bail to the defendants will result to evasion of trial and intimidation of witnesses in the course of the trial.

The counsel to the defendant, Barrister Ejiofor, clarified that the prosecution has no evidence whatsoever to prove the charges leveled against Kanu, and that IPOB activities are peaceful, and within the context of the law, thus he argued that the case cannot be in comparison to Asari Dokubo's or that of the Boko Haram sect as opined by the prosecuting counsel.

He went to state that Sub-Section 6(5) of the Constitution should be followed as a procedure on Kanu's bail decision.

Binta whose countenance and utterances portrayed her like a prosecuting counsel than a judge, however, gave her ruling thus "the offences levelled against the defendants are grievous and would not be granted bail."

Remember Buhari disobeyed the Court order to grant bail to Nnamdi Kanu on the 19th of October 2015.

Also, remember the Federal High Court Judge who granted Kanu bail, Justice Adeniyi Ademola has been under prosecution by Buhari and his right-hand tool, the DSS.
