The trial of leader of Nnamdi Kanu, the self-styled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), took a new dimension on Wednesday as he expressed objection to the fresh six-count criminal charge filed against him and the judge recused himself.
Kanu, docked along with two others, stated that the information available to him indicated he would not be able to receive a fair trial before the judge, saying he would rather remain in detention than subject himself to a trial he knows would amount to subversion of justice.
He cited previous judgements granted in his favour by courts of competent jurisdiction that were not carried out by State Security Service (SSS).
