Nnamdi Kanu Proclaims “I Have No Confidence In This Court” And Judge Drops Out


PhotoNews: The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu who has been in detention since October 17, arrived court with vigour and declined to enter his plea to the fresh six-count charge that was preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Kanu and two others were charged with what the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, Mr. Mohammed Diri, said to be treasonable felony, an offence said to be punishable under Section 41(C) of the Criminal Code Act, CAP C38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria.


The IPOB leader told the Court that he had no confidence that the court would grant him fair trial, saying he would rather remain in detention than to be subjected to the rigours of trial that would eventually amount to nothing.

Consequently, the presiding judge, Justice Mohammed, disqualified himself from handling the matter, saying he will remit the case-file to the Chief Judge of the High Court for re-assignment to another Judge.
