The trial of the leader of the Independent People Of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu took a new turn after a Federal High Court judge ruled on an application for secret trial by the Department of State Services (DSS).
After the judge over the matter, Justice Binta Nyako, made her ruling that witnesses in the ongoing trial of Kanu would be protected behind a screen, a vexed Kanu, replying from the dock said he will not be subjected to a secret trial by the federal government.
Kanu said: “I will not be tried in the secret, this is not a Sharia court, I must be tried in an open court!” kanu snapped back at Justice Nyako.
Continuing in anger, the IPOB leader said: “Buhari went public and he accused me in public now you he wants to try me secretly, I will not accept that,” Kanu said.
"He (President Buhari) has sent his sister from Kastina state (refering to the judge) to try him, he should learn to guard his utterances," he added.
