I Won’t Return To Court For Trial –Nnamdi Kanu


The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed not to return to the Federal High Court in Abuja where he was standing trial before he left the country.
The Federal Government had charged him with treason but Justice Binta Nyako granted him bail after 18 months in detention.
Kanu had flouted all the terms of the bail before the military invaded his Abia residence on September 14, 2017.
He fled afterwards and resurfaced in Jerusalem on Friday.
In a broadcast via Radio Biafra, Kanu boasted that the Nigerian court lacked the capacity to try him.
He said the judge who asked his sureties to produce him should have asked the army why they invaded his residence.
“The Nigerian court is a Kangaroo court. I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me.
“I shall not be honouring the court. I cannot be tried by a court I do not recognise.The zoo called Nigeria cannot jail me. I will fight till the last day. Till now, Binta Nyanko’s court has yet to hold a hearing about the circumstances that led the Nigerian Army to come to my house to kill 28 people. Only upon a clear pronouncement of the intentions of that very court, which I suggest to them should be free, will this very case move forward.
“Going forward, there must be guarantee from the international community so that this case can proceed and I will prove once and for all that there is something fundamentally wrong with the brains of those that rule Nigeria.”
