On Wednesday, in a statement issued by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the group alleges that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government was not ready to give its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, a fair hearing.
The group alleges that the Federal Government through its security agents and the judge handling the case, Justice Binta Nyako, is deliberately frustrating Kanu’s trial as a way of buying enough time to perfect their plans of eliminating him.
“The delay in releasing Mr Kanu and his continued detention in Kuje prisons is to perfect plans, after several attempts without success to snuff life out of our leader. It is no more a secret and the perpetrators are using all kinds of plans and delay tactics to continue to hold him while trying to eliminate him in such a way that will leave no traces.
“The Federal Government has again introduced the long-forgotten secret trial to buy time, having failed severally to eliminate him. With the new decision to use secret trial and sharia law to prosecute his case, they believe the attention of the world will not be on them.
“We are aware that the Federal Government has never been ready for a fair trial of Mazi Kanu because they have a bad case and they have proved us right with all their moves and delay tactics. All they are doing is for attention to be removed from them, so they can eliminate him.”
