COURT CASE UPDATE: JUSTICE JOHN TOSHO DENIES FG SECRET TRIAL OF KANU

JUSTICE JOHN TOSHO DENIES FG SECRET TRIAL OF KANU

In what appears more like a successful pressure, Justice John Tosho of federal high court has ruled that the leader of indigenous people of Biafra will not be given secret trial. Recall that the prosecution team had filed for a secret trial on grounds that the witnesses against Kanu are afraid and would only stand for witness if given a secret trial. FG further alleged that IPOB has been violent which will pose a threat to the lives of the witnesses, however the alleged violence is coming without evidence even as IPOB have been murdered and violently attacked while they remained peaceful.

Meanwhile, countering the plea, the defence team of the leader of Indigenous people of Biafra, who explicitly argued that trying Kanu in secret would amount to being condemned. “When people are tried in secret, i ask my self, are they already condemned before trial" Muoma had asked in his argument. After the submissions and argument, Justice John Tosho held that Kanu will not be tried in secret, citing the reasons of the FG as immature and can't hold water. He reminded them that is the duty of the Nigerian security to protect whichever witness they have and so ruled that Kanu shall be tried publicly.

On his second ruling, the trial judge also held that the properties of the second defendant taken during his arrest be returned. The DSS during the arrest of the second defendant has seized and unlawfully confiscated the said properties as listed are Mecedez Benz GL450, Toyota Camry and Rav4 which was forcely taken after he was arrested. The prosecution team pleaded that they were not aware of the said properties and would communicate the authority to return the properties to its rightful owner. The case was adjourned to 7, 8, 9, and 10th of March for the provision of witnesses.  Ibeh Gift Amarachi and Okonkwo Isaac Somto of family writers, reporting from Federal high court Abuja.

    3. GOD BLESS YOU @DAVID BROWN. A SIMPLE REFERENDUM WILL PRESERVE EFFORTS AT BEATING A DEAD HOESE.
      THE PREACHERS OF BOTH GLOBAL AND REGIONAL PEACE; AU,UN,EU,US,ECOWAS,GERMANY,RUSSIA,FRANCE ETC MUST NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHEN THEY ARE IN A POSITION TO APPLY A SIMPLE SOLUTION OF REFERENDUM TO ACTUALIZING THEIR MESSAGE OF PEACE,FREEDOM AND RESPECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND PRIVILEDGES.
      THE WORLD IS WATCHING AND POSTERITY WILL JUDGE THEIR ACTION AND INACTION.
      ECONOMIC INTEREST AND ALLY MUST NOT BE PLACED ABOVE HUMAN LIVES.
      THE WORLD MUST REALIZE THAT FORCE,BRUTALIZATION AND VICTIMIZATION DOES NOT ACHIEVE PEACE NOR WORK WITH BIAFRA,THE EXPLOSIVE CURRENT AGITATION BY BIAFRANS FOR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE IS AN INDICATION THAT WARS AND VIOLENCE OF 1967-70 CIVIL WAR DID NOT ACHIEVE THAT. THE GOVERNMENT USE OF FORCE CAN ONLY MAKE MATTERS WORSE. IF REFERNDUM FAVOURS BIAFRA, THE NEW NATION CAN BE A BETTER NEIGHBOUR TO NIGERIA ECONOMICALLY AND DIPLOMATICALLY BUT AS IT CURRENTLY STANDS,BIAFRANS HAVE NUTURED AND HARBOURED INWARDLY THEIR INDEPENDECE EVEN AFTER THE WAR ENDED AND ONLY REFERENDUM CAN PROVE THEM WRONG SATISFACTORILY AND NOT FORCEFUL COEXISTENCE. THE GLOBAL AND REGIONAL GOVERNMENTS AND OTHER WORLD POWERS SUCH AS GERMANY, RUSSIA, FRANCE,NETHERLANDS ETC MUST REALIZE THAT THEIR MESSAGE OF PEACE IS BEING QUESTIONED,MOCKED AND CHALLENGED IN THE BIAFRAN CIRCUMSTANCE. ITS TIME TO LISTEN TO VOICE OF WISDOM FREEDOM AND LIBERTY,IT'S TIME TO LET GO OF SENTIMENT AND JEALOUSY AGAINST BIAFRAN PEOPLE,IT'S TIME NIP AT THE BUD AN IMPENDING UGLY HISTORY BY DOING THE RIGHT THING,IT'S TIME TO PROVE TO MANKIND THAT THE MESSAGE OF PEACE CUTS ACROSS ALL DIVIDES OF MANKIND REGARLESS OF COLOUR AND LOCATION,IT'S TIME TO RESTORE THE CONFIDENCE THE WORLD HAS IN THESE GLOBAL AND REGIONAL PLAYERS, IT'S TIME TO SHEATH THE SWORD OF EGO, SENTIMENT AND RESENTMENT AGAINST BIAFRA BY NIGERIA AND THE WORLD, IT'S TIME TO STAND FOR THE TRUTH, IT'S TIME THE GRAY HAIRED IN NIGERIA AND AFRICA COME OUT FROM RECLUSIVE CORNER AND SPEAK UP, ITS TIME WE AVERT AN IMPENDING UGLY HISTORY CAPABLE OD DOUBLING OR EVEN TRIPLING THE CURRENT HATRED AND AGITATION BY THE FUTURE GENERATION. NIGERIA MUST SEEK FOR A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH BIAFRAN PEOPLE ANYTHING CONTRARY WOULD NEVER HELP. THE CURRENT SOLUTION TO ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL WOES BEEN SOUGHT FOR BY NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT CAN BE FOUND IN A PEACEFUL AND DIPLOMATIC RELATIONSHIP OF BOTH NATIONS.
      THE WORLD MUST REALIZE THAT A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE. AFRICAN LEADERS MUST SWALLOW FEAR AND PRIDE OVER THE EMERGENCE OF A BIAFRAN NATION. AFRICA,NIGERIA AND THE WORLD COULD BE BETTER OF WITH BIAFRA THAN WITHOUT IT. FOR OVER 100YEARS
      WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH EXPERIMENT WITH ONE NIGERIA WITH FAILURE AS A RESULT, I AM SURE INDEPENDENCE OF THE NATIONS AS CONSTITUTES IN NIGERIA WILL SKY ROCKET DEVELOPMENT BOTH HUMANLY AND ECONOMICALLY.

  5. Why keep adjourning this hearing. There is nothing to judge. Release Mr Kanu and all Biafrans in your custody. Stop using delay tactics because you will not achieve anything at the end. All hail Biafra!

  9. With what is happening to Biafrans in Nigeria and the subsequent silence of US UN UK Human rights,I think they are collaborating with the Nigerian Buhari to eliminate Biafrans.
