Why Nnamdi Kanu MUST NOT Be Tried In SECRET or Under SHARIA Legal Principles

Why Nnamdi Kanu Must Not Be Tried In Secret or Under Sharia Legal Principles

Sharia Law is a legal system being practiced mostly, in Arab states or mainly in Islamic countries around the world. The law is mostly a common law in Islam. Sharia is also a law carried out amongst Muslims and neither between Christians, Jews nor other religious groups. Besides, Sharia is mainly observed in Islamic teaching and doctrines.

While Sharia has its own place in some Northern parts of Nigeria they are normally separated from ordinary courts, this Common Law is seen as the law of the land which is generally accepted by the people geared at settling disputes between individuals; between the state and individual; between individual and firms or institutions. Sharia can be said to be, the Law that strictly practiced in some Northern part of Nigeria used to discipline offenders or perpetrators who goes against Islamic doctrine.

As far as am concerned and the last time I checked, Nigeria is a democratic state devoid of Sharia Legal principles; Nigeria is also a secular state (though literally) which allows citizens to practice their own religion without any form of compulsion. Nigeria as a secular state abhors imposition of religion in any guise whether deliberately or not, knowingly or unknowingly.

Nnamdi Kanu is a full-fledged and proud Christian with the mandate to restore Biafra and as such must not be subjected to any form of trial that has to do with Islam and its doctrine or teaching.

The imposition of Justice Binta Nyako the Sharia queen who demanded that the counsel to Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendants study Sharia Law further mocks the corrupt establishment of Nigeria and her judicial system; even as Binta Nyako’s love for her religion and Sharia Law are so glaring, her pronouncement that only those with the knowledge of Sharia Law will understand why Nnamdi Kanu should be tried in secret and she unequivocally asserted that her stance on secret trial of Kanu remains unshakeable.

The whole world was held spellbound and the social media went agog at that irresponsible and unjust ruling made by Justice Binta Nyako the Sharia queen against the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, that he will be tried in secret under Sharia legal principles should not be allow to prevail or stand because it is tantamount to bleaching or violating the inalienable human right of Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendants to fair hearing and unbiased justice.

Justice Binta Nyako who previously ruled in January 2017 against secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu surprisingly made full U-turn, swallowed her own vomit by expressly reversing her ruling in favour of secret trial and making her stance known that the secret trial holds and Sharia Legal principles will be applied. Binta Nyako - a Muslim/Sharia queen is hell-bent in convicting Nnamdi Kanu at all cost by any means possible, hence the strange introduction of Sharia Legal principles in a trial that has dragged on for two(2) solid years and the obvious fact is that the Sharia queen (Binta Nyako’s) is playing a full written script to jail Kanu using this barbaric Sharia Legal madness.

However, the questions that should be going on in the minds of many who uphold true justice without being prejudiced should be:

  1. Is Nigeria a Sharia state or a secular state?
  2. Is the Federal High Court of Nigeria now a Federal Sharia Court of Nigeria?
  3. Why is Binta Nyako introducing Sharia Legal principles in Kanu’s case?
  4. How can Nnamdi Kanu who is clearly a Christian be tried in secret and subjected under Sharia Legal principles?
  5. Since the Nigerian government accused Kanu in the public why then is Binta Nyako hellbent in trying him secretly, albeit gross violation of his right to fair hearing?
  6. Why must the witnesses be shielded or masked while testifying against the accused while Nnamdi Kanu was accused openly or is Nnamdi Kanu’s life and safekeeping lesser than theirs?
  7. Why the sudden suspicious U-Turn made by Justice Binta, overturning her own ruling in her own very court?
  8. Is Nigeria finally heading to the loudly touted Islamisation agenda by the Northern cabals under Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration?

It is obvious that Justice Binta Nyako has vowed to tarnish and bastardized and rotten image of the Nigerian judiciary and as such the judiciary is progressively heading to oblivion or invariably to abyss. Justice Binta Nyako should be stopped and until those questions above are answered, the people of good conscience should not relent in fighting for justice for Nnamdi Kanu.

Binta Nyako, the Sharia queen should as a matter of urgency jettison the secret trial by upholding open and fair hearing in this case. It is now worthwhile and within the humble jurisdiction of the NBA to stand up, defends and redeems the reputation of the Nigerian judiciary even as Binta Nyako is working assiduously to shame the already battered image of the Nigerian judicial system. It is rather of utmost important for NBA to uphold preventive measures than curative measures to prevent the heavy but imminent break down of the law of the land which will be ushered in following the unjust ruling and obvious conviction of Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendants.

Justice Binta Nyako must be stopped with her Sharia madness and must release Nnamdi Kanu because the Nigerian government has no evidence against him. Relying on Sharia Legal principles to convict Nnamdi Kanu is barbaric and will not hold waters. Justice Nyako is setting a bad precedence in the Nigerian judicial or legal system by not recalling the criminal or judicial code in the case between Nnamdi Kanu and the Nigerian government therefore this so-called secret trial should be stopped before it even starts. This embarrassing drama that is coming up once again in the Nigeria Judiciary, further exposes why Biafrans are seeking Self-determination.
