Conspiracy: Convicted Before Trial

Conspiracy:  Convicted Before Trial
By Okonkwo Isaac Somto
For Family Writers


Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra and the Director of Radio Biafra and Television has been in detention since October 14, 2015. Nnamdi kanu was arraigned for conspiracy, terrorism and funding a terrorist organization by the Nigeria DSS on orders from Buhari. Those charges was later dropped and Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail by the presiding judge but instead of letting the judiciary do their job, Muhammdu buhari insisted he wasn't going to let the judiciary grant him bail, so new treasonable felony charges was brought up against him, while President Buhari stated his reasons saying- Kanu would not be granted bail due to the "atrocities" allegedly committed.
Justice John Tsoho


Kanu was kept in DSS custody where he was been tortured for months until Hon Justice John Tsoho ruled that he should be transferred to the Nigeria Prison Service in Kuje, about 40km south-west of Abuja. Nnamdi  Kanu along with Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi - has been charged with six counts of treasonable felony after Nigerian authorities accused him of belonging to an unlawful society, using his radio station to levy war against the state, illegally entering Nigeria and bringing "sophisticated weapons". Following the new charges, Justice Ahmed Mohammed refused to hear the trial and was substituted by Tsoho. Meanwhile, Kanu said he was confident he would not receive a fair trial before the Abuja federal court.


All the accusations levied against Nnamdi Kanu are all groundless, unjustified and untenable facts, even the Nigeria judiciary was aware of the situation, they knew what Buhari was planning to do to Nnamdi Kanu was wrong and also goes against the rule of law. For even dragging Nnamdi Kanu to court continuously is wrong, let alone accusing him of terrorism, etc, the Nigeria judiciary is just doing Buhari's bidding that's all. I wonder when freedom of speech and freedom of express in a democratic government becomes a treasonable offence. A trial was supposed to hold on the 9th, 10th, 11th and the 12th of February but it was cancelled and adjourned to the 19th of February. All this are just schemes to try and frustrate Nnamdi Kanu and his people into giving up on Biafra. Buhari is using judge Tosho to do his bidding because why will judge tosho adjourn a trial that was suppose to take place for straight 4days without any reasonable details? What judge tosho is trying to do is to help Buhari push for Section 41, 63, and 47 of the criminal code.                                           


According to Section 41 of the criminal code, a person found guilty of treasonable offences can be sentenced to life imprisonment. If the defendant is acquitted, they cannot be tried for treason related to the same facts. Section 63 says that a person who manages or assists in the management of an unlawful society is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for seven years. According to section 47 of the Customs and Excise Management Act, a person who imports or causes to be imported concealed goods or goods found "not to correspond with the entry delivered thereof" can be sentenced to five years in prison without the option of paying a fine. These are all schemes Buhari is trying to use judge Tosho to accomplish. Nnamdi kanu was arrested, persecuted, tried and forcefully labeled guilty long before he even appeared in court.


There is no suitable evidence to trial, jail or persecute Nnamdi Kanu, all the Nigeria judiciary and Buhari is trying to do is to keep maneuvering and shifting the trial in other to keep Nnamdi Kanu in jail and also to forcefully sentence him to life in imprisonment, unconditionally and wrongfully but it won’t work. To let you all know that this is just a plot to frustrate Nnamdi Kanu into dropping his quest for self-determination, Nnamdi Kanu was offered a bribe and promised a fortunes to turn down Biafra by the same Buhari who is calling him a terrorist but Nnamdi rejected his offer, that was what really provoked Buhari.  Judge Tosho who received N100million from Mohammdu Buhari seems to be getting the job done for him, but judge Tosho should know that if he eventually goes against proper justice and decides to keep doing Buhari's bidding then he will have himself to blame because no amount of money or security he thinks he have, will save him from the wrath he and his household will get if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu.

  2. Time is fastly approaching when people will be forming rebel armies and begin to fight the government armies like such that's happening in Syria, Iraq and Iran even Afghanistan if time is not carefully taken in this dead state called Nigeria. The government is pushing everybody to the wall. I don't wanna be part of Nigeria, is it a crime? It's like when one says he's not living with his parents anymore that he wants to go and establish his own family and then his parents will crucify him for saying that. Is it supposed to be like that?

  4. I have been very worried about what happened to the British Parliament Early Morning Motion 808, which was suppose to be debated the floor of the paliament early January, according to Wikipadia report on IPOB. I know that so many hard core Biafrans are silently worried. I humbly request the leadership of IPOB to address millions of Biafrans on this as matter to avoid misinformation from any source. Thanks you for all your relentless efforts and God bless you.
