Nigerians have descended heavily on dictator Buhari’s reign of terror after the repressive regime, in a movement that is illegal and totally at variance with Nigeria’s constitution, selected 10 media organisations to cover the trial of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB].
Recall that CitizensAlert had previously reported how dictator Buhari, in his characteristic fashion of gagging the press, selected 10 media houses to cover Kanu’s trial as the IPOB leader appears before Justice Binta Nyanko of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
CitizensAlert also reported how officers of the State Security Service [SSS] took over the premises of the Federal High Court Abuja on Sunday, July 25. They also blocked the street on which the Federal High Court is located as they harassed law-abiding passers-by.
There have been concerns on the likelihood of Nnamdi Kanu getting a fair trial in a weak judiciary that is totally pliable to the orders of the executive led by a cruel tyrant Muhammadu Buhari.
Kanu is facing trumped-up charges of treason, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms, amongst others for merely demanding for self-determination through a referendum like Scotland’s recent attempt to break away from the UK, and UK’s successful break away from the European Union [EU].
Below are the comments by Nigerians and Amnesty International.
