‘Buhari Cannot Intimidate me, He is mad’ – Nnamdi Kanu Bellows (VIDEO)

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being a liar, adding that president Buhari could not intimidate him.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in heated court session opined that the president can intimidate court judges, but not him.

“The president can intimidate the judges, but he cannot do that to me. Tell him he has lied”.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had ruled on an application seeking the protection of witnesses in the trial of Mr. Kanu and David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe, who are in court for alleged treasonable felony.

In her ruling,

Delivering the ruling, Justice Binta Nyako said the court would allow the witnesses some degree of protection.

“The counsels and the defendants will see the witnesses. The witnesses will have special entrances to and outside the court,” said the Judge.

She further added that court would allow the witnesses to be shielded with screen-guards, That the court would set aside two days for rehearsals on how the witnesses will come into the court and depart from the court.

The ruling irked Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who flared up saying  he would not allow himself to be given a secret trial in any way.

Adding that he would not be accused in public and tried in secret.

Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, Chux Muoma, warned his client to allow the counsel he employed to do his job without undue interference in court.

“Sit down! I am your counsel let me talk. I have not come all the way here to allow you speak for me in court,

The judge, Mrs. Nyako, warned the defendants to desist from making her court rowdy.

“It is not going to be a secret trial. The court will allow the defendants see the witnesses. The defendant counsel will also see the witnesses,” replied the trial Judge.

The defendants challenged that position again, drawing the judge’s warning.

“If you don’t stop talking in my court I will assume you are becoming a nuisance in my court. And if I assume so, I will continue this trial in your absence, so do not try my patience,” she said.

“When you are in my court you will do what I want. It’s like having a visitor in your house; you can serve the visitor food but if he wants to eat he will eat and if he doesn’t want to, he will not.”

After a brief recess, Mr. Kanu began to speak again.

“I will address this court! You cannot be killing my people and tell me that you will make me have a secret trial. That won’t happen! The president can intimidate the judges, but he cannot do that to me. Tell him he has lied.

Court clerks then told the people present in court that the session was over and that the matter would not continue again on Tuesday.

    Comment…in the history of judiciary system or justice delivery i have never witness such judicial proceeding anywhere in the world with what we are seeing in nigeria judiciary.That somebody committed offence in the public and you are prosecuting him in secret.If government is sincere in this prosecution why are they bringing fresh charges every de novo, and making her judges to be ridiculed by the law.well, i am not flabagasted this is animal kingdom where rules of law are not obeyed.the law is always made by the superior[people in power]for inferiors [people they are governing] to obey.I know the world is watching.Even our slave master Britain seeing the evil they created because of crude Oil.Don’t they have regard on human rights in their land?
