As the next court sitting and hearing on the case of 5 count charges bothering on treasonable felony and other frivolous allegations instituted by Nigeria government against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) comes up on March 20th and 21st, 2017, the Nigeria Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Binta Nyako is standing between two choices if justice must smile to victory in the said court sitting. The two choices that will make justice to prevail in the coming court sitting of March 20th, is as follows:
Moreover, I want Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding Judge to see the judicial errors she committed by denying the 4 IPOB, their bail application on the order of General Muhammadu Buhari who want them to be jailed at all cost even extra-judicially. Has the court under Justice Binta Nyako as presiding Judge granted Nnamdi Kanu and other 3 IPOB bail on November 8, 2016 when the case file was opened as the law stipulated to go and prepare for their defense against the government allegations in the said case, Nigeria government can go ahead and stay till eternity before it substantiate its heavy allegation of treason against the 4 IPOB. However, it is rather a rape on justice for the honorable court to deny the accused persons bail on a mere assumption that the accused persons whose international passports and other travelling documents were confiscated by the same authorities of the government, could be flight risk or may jump bail. Now that the prosecution counsel has continued refusing to show seriousness in substantiating their allegation with evidences or tangible exhibits, the only thing that will return smile on the face of justice is for the court to overrule bail denial just as it overruled secret trial and acquit Nnamdi Kanu.
It has become important for the honorable court and the presiding Judge in particular to use her discretion to think of the pain associated with confining an accused person in prison for 17 calendar months when it is obvious that the government is using the power vested on the honourable court as tool for human right violation. Justice Binta Nyako should say "NO" to further waste of time by the prosecuting counsel and acquit Nnamdi Kanu and other 3 IPOB if S. I. Labaran continues praying the court for the reinstatement of the already thrown away laughable secret trial. The world is on the watch and their fingers crossed to see the incorruptibility in the trial Judge come March 20, 2017.
