Court Case Update: Judge And Nigeria Government Frustrated By Resilience Of Defense Counsels To Kanu And Co-defendants

Court Case Update: Judge And Nigeria Government Frustrated By Resilience Of Defense Counsels To Kanu And Co-defendants

The prosecuting counsel representing the Nigeria government, Hon. Barrister S.I Labaran, as well as the judge in charge of the proceedings, Mrs Binta Nyako have expressed discomfort over the continuous applications being filed by the Defense Counsels to IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and co-defendants, seeking for the court to grant their clients bail and to reject a secret trial for the defendants.

Following the  introduction of the Counsels,  Hon. Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Counsel to the first defendant-Nnamdi Kanu, requested the court to review its order made on December 13, 2016 against the bail of the defendant and in favour of a secret trial.

"My Lord, we filed an application on the 22/3/2017. In support of this application, is a Nine Paragraph affidavit, by Uchechukwu Moborogwu.
A written address dated 16/3/2017, was also filed,

  "We plea that, this honourable court should review the order made on the 13th day of December 2016," Barrister Ejiofor told the court.

However the Counsel of prosecution, S.I Labaran objected the application saying:

"My Lord, having gone through the application filed, we found out that, it has no difference with the previous one filed,

   "We hereby plead that, the court should accept the countered affidavit before the court,
  "We also demand that, my Lord should dismiss the application, because it does not just lack merit, but is frivolous in nature and a ploy to delay this matter.We hereby adopt the oral written address and affidavit," he stated.

The counsel to the Third defendant(Barrister Essene) adopted the argument of the first defense counsel, for the third defendant, and  which the prosecuting counsel also objected.

The judge intercepted in favour of the Counsel of Prosecution, and warned the defense counsels against frustrating the trial of the accused:

 "This filing of new applications by the defending counsels is delaying this case. I might get angry and adjourn this case, if this continues like this," the judge stated.

BUT WE ARE NOT LIKE OUR TALK AND OUT TALK IS NOT LIKE OUR ACTION. WE SHOULD START ATTACKING NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT AND THEY WILL KNOW THAT WE ARE VERY SERIOUS AND READY. BIAFRA SHOULD GET VERY VERY READY FOR WAR AND READY TO LOST SOUL AND LIVE BUT AT THE END THE BIAFRA WILL BE ACHIEVE. BELIEVE ME THAT NOTHING GOOD ACHIEVE EASY. I AM ALSO BIAFRA AND VERY READY TO SACRIFICE MY LIFE.

  9. Injustice arises when equals are treated unequally.. Why do Nigerians claimed to be one whereas we are not one!
    Nigeria only fights for the UNITY of Nigeria But never fight for PEACE of Nigerians.
    Hausa fulani kill Biafrans in d name of Herdsmen and cut off pastor's wife head and nothing happened... but someone who never hurt a house fly will be kept in the prison and we are claiming to be one Nigeria!!
    Who is fooling who?
    It is time for people to use their heads properly.
    Ndewonu!
    Ekwensumustobey by fire by force!!!
