Secret Trial: Buhari Pursuing Islamization Agenda Through The Judiciary

By Ogu Edozie Williams

In a display that appears like a child's play but really serious, although not to the utter amazement of the stakeholders in the Nigerian establishment as the drumming of the Islamization agenda of the north has been prevalent, Justice Binta Nyako, a Nigerian Federal High Court judge, has attested to the fact that the Islamization agenda is still ongoing and Nigeria is more of an Islamic State.

Justice Binta Nyako is the judge who took over the case of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, after Justice John Tsoho resigned from the case following a judicial blunder of countering his own ruling without proper appealing from the prosecution.

Binta was born in the same state with President Muhamadu Buhari, Katsina state; but married to the former governor of Adamawa state, Murtala Hamman-Yero Nyako.

She became a judge on 28th July, 2000; and the case of Nnamdi Kanu and co was reassigned to her in October,  2016 after much search for a trial judge with Islamic blood running in their veins, who would not have a second thought to  deliver judgements following Sharia law.

Nigerians, especially those of the Christian faith, have decried the Islamization agenda of Gen. Muhamadu Buhari, which agenda has been on the nurture since Nigeria's independence from the British colonial rule.

This Islamization agenda, although has been denied by the presidency, has been resurfacing at interval; which validates, most often than not, the fact that out of the abundance of the heart speaks the mouth".

They ( Northen Islamic Jihadists ) have founded and have been financing Boko Haram which is seeking to establish Islamic caliphate in Nigeria.

They have also formed and armed Fulani militia ravaging the whole country--- herdsmen heavily armed and shooting host communities yet the Federal Government is mute about it.

The maximum ruler, Gen. Muhamadu Buhari had promised and reiterated his commitment to spreading Sharia to the nukes and crannies in the Nigerian establishment on several ocassion in interviews mostly on Hausa radio.

He had been appointed by the Boko Haram sect to lead the negotiations with the Federal Government during the tenure of President Goodluck Ebelle Jonathan;  and recently in the House of Assembly, a northern Senator had advocated for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate for the Boko Haram.

They have been swimming between ways to carry out their Islamization agenda and have recently come up with Grazing Reserve Bill to make Fulani herdsmen legitimate owners of any land in any community in Nigeria which they want for feeding their cattle which the federal government would reserve for them.

The bill if passed, Nigerians have cried, would mean a step towards Islamization because the Fulani would have the right to choose any place which they deem good enough for their cattle and the Federal Government will be obligated to obtain it for them and by so doing can take possession of almost all communities in the country.

Since all their systematic moves to Islamize Christian Nigerians have been proving abortive, Muhamadu Buhari selected her sister, Binta, to establish the use of Sharia law to judge cases in all Nigerian courts, through first test-running it on the case of Nnamdi Kanu and co; because once Binta succeeds in using Sharia law, which permits secret trial of publicly accused persons, in Nnamdi Kanu's case, it becomes a law that will prevail in the entire Nigerian state.

Binta had in the last appearance in court (20th March, 2017) asked the defense counsels of Nnamdi Kanu and co accused to go and study Sharia law in order to equip themselves with necessary knowledge on how to defend their clients because her court shall be adopting Sharia law in the case.

Meanwhile, the counsel to Nnamdi Kanu had tendered application before the court of Binta, to vary her earlier ruling on secret trial which ruling was occasioned by the charge of Terrorism  levelled against Nnamdi Kanu and co which the Federal Government was not able to prove in a prima facie and as a result was one of the charges quashed by Justice Binta.

Ejiofor's (counsel to Nnamdi Kanu) argument is obviously valid seeing that the charge(s) which necessitated the ruling on secret trial is(are) no longer there, but in trying to uphold the decision of Buhari to spread Sharia law to all parts of Nigeria, Justice Binta has insisted on going on with the secret trial even though the law she is interpreting says otherwise.

She adjourned the hearing on the secret trial to 6th April, 2017 and we hope she would have by then cast off from herself the apron string of Buhari in her judgement.

Nnamdi Kanu was accused publicly and as the law stipulates, should be tried publicly, with journalists allowed to do their job unless there's something Binta and her brother Buhari want to hide or achieve other than justice.
