Nnamdi Kanu gets another Judge for his Case.

Another judge has been
asked to take over the
case of Radio Biafra
director, Nnamdi Kanu.
According to IBTimes UK, the
pro-Biafran leader’s lawyer,
Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofo, the
case will be now presented
before Justice John Tsoho of
the Federal High Court in
Maitama, Abuja.
Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB
before his detention by the
DSS.
Kanu has been in detention
since last year October over
charges of terrorism and
conspiracy, and despite the
fact that an Abuja High Court
ruled he should be released,
officials pressed new
treasonable felony charges
against him and two other
defendants, Benjamin
Madubugwu and David
Nwawuisi.

His lawyer has now informed
that, “the case is now slated
for arraignment and hearing
of our pending application for
his bail on 18 January 2016.
“The motion for his bail was
today, 13 January, served
on the attorney general of
the federation. They are yet
to file any counter to the
application. I and the defence
team will now be leading the
case.”
On whether his client has
been subjected to series of
torture by the officials of the
Department of State Security
Services (DSS), the lawyer
said: “These allegations of
torture cannot be
established until we are able
to see him,” adding that his
team wrote a letter to the
director general of the DSS
asking for permission to see
their client.

“They are yet to respond. In
the unlikely event that we
won’t be able to see him
before, we are going to see
him in court on 18 January.”
There have been series of
protests since the arrest
and detention of Kanu as the
members of the Indigenous
People Of Biafra (IPOB) are
seeking the immediate
release of their leader.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural
group, Ohaneze Ndigbo has
also pleaded with President
Muhammadu Buhari to
release the detained director
of Radio Biafra to Igbo
leaders, assuring that they
would make him realize the
futility of continuing his pro-
Biafra stance.
