Nigeria is a democratic and a secular entity domiciled by a large population of the Christian faith, predominantly in the Southern and the Western part of the country.
The country was designed by the imperialists in such a way that the Islamic fundamentalists and extremists are always the ones at the helm of affairs in the country. This paved way for the Hausa Fulanis who are ill-educated or even uneducated to always see Nigeria as their property, hence they see themselves as the first class citizens, while others are tagged infidels and unbelievers who ought to be beheaded and maimed for their Christian faith.
Nevertheless, the Islamic brotherhood in Nigeria have been working tirelessly and extremely determined to execute by all means, their grand plan to Islamize the totality of Nigeria. However, it hasn't been easy for them, because Nigeria is practising a democratic system of government guided by a Common/Civil law as enshrined in the Nigeria constitution.
The Hausa Fulani people and their political elites have been messing around with the civil law which they absolutely know nothing about, owing to the fact that they're backward in reasoning and uneducated.
In Nigeria, the constitution is never a watchword of an average Nigerian, but, it's whatever decision that the Hausa Fulani makes that is forced upon the entirety of Nigeria. It's very important to note that there is no rule of law in Nigeria; court injunctions are discarded and disobeyed with impunity by government officials on a daily basis.
As written in the 1999 constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, in chapter four which protects Right to fair hearing, it states that;
"Whenever any person is charged with a criminal offence, he shall, unless the charge is withdrawn, be entitled to a fair hearing in public within a reasonable time by a court or tribunal: Provided that - (a) a court or such a tribunal may exclude from its proceedings persons other than the parties thereto or their legal practitioners in the interest of defence, public safety, public order, public morality, the welfare of persons who have not attained the age of eighteen years, the protection of the private lives of the parties or to such extent as it may consider necessary by reason of special circumstances in which publicity would be contrary to the interests of justice."
Subsection five of that same chapter states;
"Every person who is charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed to be innocent until he is proved guilty; Provided that nothing in this section shall invalidate any law by reason only that the law imposes upon any such person the burden of proving particular facts."
Of course, anything contrary to the above stated constitutional provisions is an infringement on the right of the accused.
Since 14th October 2015, the exact time the Nigeria Government arrested Prophet Nnamdi Kanu through the unconstitutional Department of State Service (DSS) in Lagos, they have not been able convict him of any offence, but have kept him in detention without any transparent trial.
It's worth knowing that the right of Prophet Nnamdi Kanu has been grossly violated by Nigerian government through her corrupt judiciary who have been paid to pervert justice. The current Judge, Justice Binta Fatima Murtala Nyako presiding over the case, have taken it upon herself to convict, and jail Nnamdi Kanu. This will definitely be impossible because he (Nnamdi Kanu) committed no offence.
Binta who earlier ruled against secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu, had on March 20, and April 25, 2017, made a u-turn to reinstate the secret trial, while anchoring the basis of her ruling on Sharia law; thereby launching an incredible intimidation campaign against Nnamdi Kanu, his co-defendants and their defense counsels.
This is yet, another proof that the total Islamisation of Nigeria is extremely imminent; because quoting Sharia law in a democratic entity governed under civil law as the reason to reinstate the secret trial which Binta ruled against is totally absurd and very unimaginable.
Notwithstanding, there are three standing court orders which ordered that Nnamdi Kanu be released unconditionally, of which the federal government of Nigeria under general Muhammadu Buhari has flagrantly refused to obey, and which the said Justice Nyako is fully aware of. Binta must understand that Nigeria is a democratic and a secular state, and as such the rule of law must be paramount.
Also Binta must understand that Biafrans are Christians and as such can't be subjected under sharia law, hence Nnamdi Kanu can't undergo secret trial under Sharia Law. Biafrans are saying NO to secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendants, hence we are urging Binta to stop playing games and dancing to the tune of Buhari and his cohorts, and without further delay, vary all the unconstitutional terms she imposed on the bail of Nnamdi Kanu.
