Presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako storms out of court room
Politics Nigeria has exclusively gotten photographs from the secret trial session of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
It could be recalled that Justice Binta on the 13th of Dec 2016, ruled that masked witnesses would be allowed to testify against Kanu. She quoted circumstances under section 36(6) of the 1999 constitution, whereby witnesses are allowed to conceal their identity.
She held that the court will be able to see their witnesses, but it will be restricted to the representatives of both parties. She added that the court is going to be arranged in such a way that only the defendants and the defense counsels will be able to see the witnesses.
But Nnamdi Kanu in quick response to her presposterous ruling, made an outburst
“Do i look like a fool to you? I won’t take this. Buhari accused me in the public and the trial must be open to all, I won’t accept this.”
“Buhari cannot accuse me in the open and try me in secret.”
