The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Tuesday, again lambasted Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High court, following the revocation of his bail.
Kanu claimed that the trial judge was ignorant of the Nigerian constitution.
In a tweet, on Tuesday, the IPOB leader said the Nigerian constitution prohibits trial and conviction of anybody for “offence not written down.”
Citing Section 36 sub-section 12 of the Nigerian constitution, the IPOB leader maintained that secession was not written down as an offence in Nigeria, hence he can’t be convicted.
“Section 36 sub-section 12 of the Nigerian Constitution PROHIBITS trial and conviction of anybody in a Nigerian court of any offence not written down. Secession or self-determination is not written down as an offence in Nigeria. Binta Nyako is ignorant of the law,” he tweeted.
Justice Nyako, who had granted Kanu bail few years ago had last week revoked the bail.
The trial judge said that Kanu’s bail was revoked due to his refusal to attend his trial since he was granted bail.
