It could be recalled that Nigerian government
arrested Mazi Nnamdi Kanu since October 14th,
2015 due to his unbendable quest for the
restoration of Biafra as a sovereign state and have
kept him in an unlawful detention till today. It could
be recalled also that a Magistrate Court in Abuja
presided over by Hon. Usman Shaibu granted bail to
Nnamdi Kanu on October 19th, 2015 and the then
stringent bail conditions were met by Bar. Vincent
Obetta who was Nnamdi Kanu’s defense lawyer as
at that time, but the DSS and Gen Muhammadu
Buhari of Nigeria on the other hand refused to
release him after meeting his bail conditions. Mazi
Nnamdi Kanu was later discharged by Hon. Usman
Shaibu after arraignment in the Magistrate court
where the DSS was unable to substantiate its
allegation of Criminal Conspiracy against the
Nigerian state on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu but Gen.
Buhari still ordered that Mazi Kanu will not be
released to enjoy his freedom.

The DSS went ahead to detain Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
until they later arraigned him again in the Federal
High Court Abuja, Nigeria, presided over by an
incorruptible Judge, Hon. Justice Adeniyi Ademola
on allegation of terrorism sponsorship and dumped
Criminal Conspiracy preferred on Mazi Kanu in the
previous Magistrate Court. After hearing the
arguments from the both counsels led by
Mohammed Diri (DPP, Nigeria Min. of Justice)
representing DSS and Nigeria FG and Bar Vincent
Egechukwu Obetta representing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
and Biafra, the incorruptible Judge, Hon. Justice
Adeniyi Ademola first condemned the rationale for
detaining Mazi Kanu unlawfully for 90 days which
already violated his fundamental human right as a
citizen as stipulated in Nigerian Constitution of
1999 as amended. He ended his condemnation of
the unlawful detention with an adjournment of the
case to December 17th, 2015 for ruling.

On December 17th, 2015, the incorruptible Judge,
Hon Adeniyi Ademola drew the attention of the
counsel to the DSS and Nigerian government with a
statement which the incorruptible Judge made thus
“Next time when you people bring a person into this
honourable court on the allegation of terrorism,
make sure you bring a real terrorist and not a
freedom fighter or activist who preach his ideology
on radio station according to evidence before court
here provided by both counsels. Terrorists do not
stay and preach on radio stations as contained in
the evidences of the plaintiff which had it that the
accused was broadcasting from a radio station”.

After these analyses, the incorruptible Judge, Hon
Justice Adeniyi Ademola ruled that Mazi Nnamdi
Kanu is just a freedom fighter who has no traceable
link to terrorism, and should be released
unconditionally. Again, Gen Muhammadu Buhari
disobeyed court verdict and ordered DSS not to
release Nnamdi Kanu regardless of the court
verdict. It was on this note that Nigeria government
later shifted from terrorism to treason or
treasonable felony and arraigned Mazi Kanu again
on December 29th, 2015 before Justice Ahmed
Muhammed who finally hands-off the case that
same day because Mazi Nnamdi Kanu declared that
he has no confidence any more on Nigerian courts
as Nigerian government has in several occasions
disobeyed court orders and verdicts with Nigeria
Judicial Council doing nothing to call Nigeria
government to order. The case file eventually
continued to move until it reached Justice Binta
Nyako.

A visit to the numerous previous Family Writers
Press publications in our website, The Biafra Herald
publication blog will convince you that there is no
type of admonition within the confine of the law,
which we have not given to Justice Binta Nyako to
stand at where Justice stands from November 8th,
2016 when she opened the case file. Unfortunately,
Justice Binta Nyako placed no value on the advices
of Family Writers Press in the bid to satisfy
Nigerian government which vowed that Nnamdi
Kanu will never be released. The was a terrifying
statement made by Gen Muhammadu Buhari in his
first median media chat on December 30th, 2015,
which has being blackmailing Nigeria Judges in the
case of Nnamdi Kanu and Nigerian government,
Justice Binta Nyako inclusive.

“And the one you are
calling Kanu, do you know he had two passports –
one Nigerian, one British – and he came into the
country without any? Do you know he brought
equipment into this country and was broadcasting
Radio Biafra? Which kind of government do you
think should harbour that kind of person? There is a
treasonable felony suit against him and I hope the
court will listen to the case.” Said by President
Buhari
SinceJustice Binta Nyako became the presiding
Judge in the case under reference here, she has
indulged in all manner of judicial rascality
noticeable in her controversial way of handling the
case all these months.

(1) Justice Binta Nyako declared that the terrifying
and judicial influencing statement made by Gen
Buhari as the president of Nigeria will not by any
reason constitute an executive interference in the
case and that simply showed that she is
intellectually dwarf in judicial knowledge by not
knowing that such word of the president can
influence court.
(2) She continued doing verdict somersaults in her
rulings against judicial procedures in Nigeria which
has it that a court has no jurisdiction to overrule,
withdraw, overturn or set aside its verdict unless a
higher court does that through an appeal filed in the
appellate court by plaintiff or defendant.

(3) She quickly denied the defendants bail at the
beginning of the opening of the case not
considering the enormous damages it may cause
the plaintiff to pay in consequence as restitution
should the accused person be found innocent after
the trial as he has been detained for too long.

(4) She continued making all manner of reckless
statements inside court room which includes (a)
that the court is her own and will do anything she
wish whether Nnamdi Kanu like it or not, (b) that
she will declare Nnamdi Kanu unrule if he ever talk
in the court again and will deny him court
appearance subsequently.
(5) She continued doing needless adjournment in
the case to buy more time for the plaintiff against
the judicial procedures.
(6) She sneaked in Sharia Law type of secret trial
which will feature masked witnesses without the
ratification of Attorney General of Nigeria, with
satisfiable exhibits contained in an affidavit made
available before the court as stipulated by Section
36 of 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as amended.

It is in view of all these judicial misconducts and
many more displayed by Justice Binta Nyako since
November 8th, 2016, when she opened the case
file, that Family Writers Press want Justice Binta
Nyako to understand that a trial Judge is not a
monopoly or island of powers and right vested on
courts. It is important for her to understand that it
is where the right and powers of the trial Judge
ends, is where that of defense lawyers or even a
prosecutor begins in a judicial procedures. If
Justice Binta Nyako cluelessly believed that a trial
Judge is the island or bus stop of the powers
vested on courts, then she is heading to intentional
career and moral suicide.

Family Writers Press
hereby once again advise Justice Binta Nyako to
resign from her judicial office in Nigeria Federal
High Court if she is not educated enough to serve
as a Judge, in order to save Nigeria judiciary from
further embarrassment due to her display of judicial
cluelessness.
Whatever she likes, let her be doing in the Nigeria
Federal High Court which she has converted herself
as the self-styled owner of the court, but she has no
judicial powers and right to subject Mazi Nnamdi
Kanu, the Supreme leader of Indigenous People of
Biafra to such a kangaroo and useless grant of bail.
By this bail ruling, Justice Binta Nyako has
succeeded in nailing the coffin of the Nigerian
judiciary before the world and a laughing stock
before international observers.

Family Writers Press
rejects in strong terms such unconstitutional grant
of bail because it’s not just a violation of
fundamental human right of Nnamdi Kanu but a way
of placing a man who doubles as the Supreme
leaders of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
Worldwide and Eastern Consultative Assembly
(ECA) in a house arrest for no crime in democratic
Nigeria. If she fails to overrule this bail which
contains the questionable conditions as she has
been overruling her verdicts in the past, then she
will risk being dragged to National Judicial Council
(NJC) for investigation into what has been
blackmailing her in the case or be reported to
international judicial arena.
Family Writers Press found it as unfortunate and
disturbing that a supposed high profile Judge in
Federal High Court of Nigeria as Justice Binta
Nyako does not understand the reason for bail to a
defendant. For her information, a defendant is
entitled to bail on the following reasons:

(1) To enable him/her go home and prepare for his
defense against the accusation levelled against him
by the plaintiff because he still enjoy equality in
human right with plaintiff before the court.

(2) To save the plaintiff from paying an enormous
restitution to the accused person should he/she be
found innocent after the trial. By the grant of bail,
the accused will be at liberty to enjoy his freedom
and be doing his/her business and at the same
time appears in court on court sitting days.
In conclusion, Family Writers Press declares in this
Press Release that we reject the bail ruling until the
right thing is done by the court.
