The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr Nnamdi Kanu has said he would expose secrets that would sink Nigeria.
Kanu’s trial continued today before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The Federal Government had applied for her witnesses’ identities by shielded from the trial.
Justice Binta granted the FG’s prayers stating that witnesses will present their cases behind a screen.
She also said the witnesses will enter and leave the courtroom through a secret door.
Justice Nyako also held that names of all the prosecution witnesses would not be disclosed in any record of the court proceedings.
Justice Nyako, however, stressed that both the defendants and their counsel would be allowed to see the witnesses.
Immediately Justice Binta gave the ruling, Nnamdi Kanu exploded from the dock.
“I won’t stand this travesty of Justice. Buhari spoke in public, he accused me in public.
“I must also be allowed to stand my trial in public”, Kanu bellowed from the dock.
“This is nonsense! I will give testimony before this court!
“By the time I finish, there will be no Nigeria. This is no Sharia court.
“It is a court that operates under the common law.
“There will be no screening of witnesses, no fake identities or fake addresses.
“I cannot be tried in secret. No! Nnamdi Kanu cannot be jailed in secret!
“They are mad. Why must I be tried in secrecy by a government that does not obey court orders?
“They are [neutralizing] my people in public.
“After [neutralizing] my people they want to try me in private?
“That person is mad. I won’t allow it. “, Kanu fumed.
Nnamdi Kanu is being accused of treasonable felony and their alleged involvement in acts of terrorism.
