BREAKING: Biafra: SSS operatives, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers, family members clash in court

Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu

The trial of a leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, took a dramatic turn Monday, when counsel in the case told Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court that their lives were under threat.

The prosecuting team also accused Mr. Kanu’s lawyers and family members of constituting threats to its witnesses.

Mr. Kanu and two others – Benjamin Maudubugwu and David Nwawuisi – were brought before the court for alleged treason, for maintaining unlawful society, among other charges.

At the commencement of hearing on Monday, prosecution counsel, Mohammed Diri, informed the court that Mr. Kanu’s lawyer had altercation with members of the State Security Service while trying to enter the courtroom, Monday morning.

Reading from a short note he claimed was written by a staff of the SSS, Mr. Diri said the defence counsel and members of Mr. Kanu’s family were constituting threats to the lives of witnesses.

He asked the court to adjourn the matter till such a time when the witnesses would be granted the needed protection to help them confidently testify in court.

But the lead counsel to Mr. Kanu, Chux Muoma, asked the court to grant permission to Ifeayin Ejiofor, the counsel who had altercation with the SSS, to explain what happened.

When Mr. Ejiofor was given permission to speak, he accused SSS operatives of trying to kill him.

According to Mr. Ejiofor, he had gone to intervene in a dispute between members of Mr. Kanu’s family and staff of the SSS.

He said at the scene of the disagreement, he was told that the SSS staff were blocking Mr. Kanu’s family members from entering the court.

Mr. Ejiofor said the SSS operatives at the scene insisted that they would only allow three additional family members of Mr. Kanu to join those already in the court premises.

He said when he (Mr. Ejiofor) tried to explain to them that there was an order of court permitting members of the public to witness the proceedings, Mr. Ejiofor said a staff of the SSS threatened to kill him.

He therefore prayed the court to take note of the threat.

“My lord I will like you to take note of this threat to my life, because I don’t know what will happen tomorrow,” Mr. Ejiofor said.

The trial judge, Mr. Tsoho, who noted that events had taken a different turn from what was expected, added that if the parties to the matter felt threatened, the case might as well be handed over to the celestial order to resolve.

He asked the parties to decide whether or not they wanted the trial to continue.

The matter was thereafter stepped down for a 30-minute break to enable parties determine the way forward for the matter.

The court had adjourned the matter on February 19, for today March 7.

    The trial judge, Mr. Tsoho, who noted that events had taken a different turn from what was expected, added that if the parties to the matter felt threatened, the case might as well be handed over to the celestial order to resolve.

    He asked the parties to decide whether or not they wanted the trial to continue.

    What a judge ! So all anyone not wanting this case to continue do is start some altercation in court and the judge would just hand the case over to what he called “celestial order” ? Judiciary is indeed a problem in Nigeria. Where is the fearlessness needed in the job ?

    • Julius

      Instead of taking charge of his courtroom, he is trying to pass it to someone else. What an absurd concept .

      • tundemash

        Strange!

        • Otile

          Not strange at all, what else do you expect from a kangaroo court?

        • Julius

          Yep. it seems like they lose interest when they cant make money from any case. Shameful. Buhari is right about the Judiciary in the country.

      • Höly Wähala

        What is, “celestial order” biko… .???
        Se na Cele Church dem wann carry Nnamdi go Hang? Hahaha chei indeed… methinks, both parties should slug it out outside court then, the winner goes back to inform the judge of his ideas about the way forward. Clowns!

        • Julius

          Its nonsense simply because he cant have bribe. Clowns is right.

  • Burning Spear

    All the trial judge needed to do, was to call the Buhari Gestapo–the DSS to order –period: Sadly for the Nation, the Judge as it is usual with most of the judges in Nigeria, does not have the courage to do so–because EFCC ati DSS operatives have declared Judge Tosho, Yunusa ati Lawyer Ricky Tarfa wanted in the Luciferic Celestial Relm—-of Buhari—————–Animals——

    • emmanuel

      lol!

  • Otile

    One Nigeria is degenerating into the ludicrous. Does Buhari also pay the ethereal realm to decide cases of this nature? This is absurd. Celestial order my foot.

  • Julius

    lolz. Ibos are always trying to bully people and issue threats to have their ways. Not gonna happen in this case. Na wa oo. Thats all they know how to do. Noise, bully and threats. Damn losers !

    • emmanuel

      Bastard.
      The Igbos want to bully? how about the ones who slaughter your people AT mile12? who should you worry about?
      A slave is a slave anyday and that is what you exhibit.
      Thank God you guys know that most of your people are slaves in the South America and it trully run in all your veins.
      That was confirmed in the dinner held with your Ooni of your false sources two weeks ago!

      • Julius

        lolz. I knew the cannibals will wake up. Im praying that you stop eating human beings. That will be realy nice. Dont you think ? Get da fck out, bytch !. You cant bully me. Never !!

    • Otile

      Dummy, the Fulanis are the real bullies in fake one Nigeria. See how they are bullying Yorubas in Mile12 and yet you are too cowardly to condemn their impunity. Do you think insulting Igbo makes you smart? Knock off sycophancy and praise-singing of your Fulani masters first. Traitor.

      • Julius

        bullying Yorubas in Mile 12 ?. how many Yoruba died there ? Oloshi, a faggot like you cant face reality. lolz. Show me where Im praising anybody. smdh ! Faggot

        • Otile

          How many times will you chant the word faggot? Can you swear that you have never praised illiterate Buhari or immoral Sanusi? Lair

          • Julius

            Otile, mofo homo !. You like that better ? Fcking pedo faggot u !

          • Otile

            Idiot_the topic is about your Fulani master hiring masked men to lie on the stand for him, but your own comment about the matter is …mofo homo !. You like that better ? Fcking pedo faggot u !

            Tomorrow you will be chanting the same old shit. Odale

    • Dan Arewa

      Noooooo! Sometimes they used to be serious ooooo!. It is only when they realize that fire is not a good thing to play with they take a life saving decision as in the case of Ojukwu (riP) Vs the Great Nigerian Military in 1970. In that historical case, Ojukwu decide to lit fire to the entire south east. He made sure that the entire region was engulfed in flames before he wore a women wrapper and ran away with his tail between his legs. I thought he left that legacy to his children (Kanus), but what I am seeing is real act of cowardice.

      • bjay

        Yesoo the igbos are cowardice may be they want to reduce their populations again.

        • Otile

          See how you fools_contradict each other. Dummy julius is saying that Igbo are bullies and you are agreeing with him say that they are cowards. What kind of fools_are you lot?

      • Otile

        Are you having a celebration party with your fellow Mohammedan Julius? Both of you are daily celebrating the death of 2 million Igbo children killed by Gowon and Awolowo. The blood of those children will haunt you and your fellow murderers unto the 4th generation. It will never be well with both of you. Bastards

        By the way Gowon ran away to Ingila, Ogundipe ran away to Ingila too. Ojukwu did well not to allow himself to perish at the dirty hands of those reptiles.

        • Peter

          But brother, have you pondered for once that the souls of the Igbomen killed in the brutish massacre in the north are at war in Hausa land now, this time around using the Boko Haram as a revenge tool to kill and maim their fellow men. The Almighty God is not at sleep.

          • Arabakpura

            This is the comment of the month!

          • Otile

            Thank you my brother, God lives.

      • Julius

        lolz. No mind the idiots. They think we dont know the history of the country. Nonsense !

      • Peace Forall

        There is no need engaging in a debate with you half illitrate or an educated illitrates. Stop living in the past. Perhaps, nigeria and nigerians has not studied history to know that dreams, freedom, liberty, justice, etc. cannot be quashed with ordinary tribal hatred, intolerance, violence and war. Islamic hausa-fulani government of nigeria and nigerians has lost major focus on international / diplomatic politics. One thing is certain, Biafra must be restored.

    • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

      Hahaha…at least Igbos are not attacking you and your people or burning down your face me I face you…Akiolu is missing since last week, seems like it doesn’t bother u and other losers…

      • Julius

        What did you do when BK slaughtered your people in the North. Please , tell me. You ran like a rat AGAIN ! .Mostly to the south west. Right ?

        • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

          We are not barbaric…

          • Julius

            Oh really ? What do you call soldiers going to their senior officers in the middle of the night killing them and their pregnant wives ? That must be civilized. Right ?

          • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

            Your people played a major role in the killing but you know you guys are two-faced and double-tongued…

          • Julius

            what major role ? You people love to re-write history. All their leaders were the Ibos. Ask your boy FFK. Better yet, read the various book written about it including the Ibos that were part of the barbaric , inhuman killing of a pregnant woman. Hoe vicious can a human being be ? You online talking about you are civilized ? Please.

          • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

            The Igbos are not your problem…your people are being slaughtered like rats and pigs in Ketu…tell your Oba Akiolu this is the right time for him to speak up and open the gate to lagoon because “yoruba lives matter”… he should stop hiding, his throne is under threat, he should face the adversity head on if he got balls…

          • Julius

            I asked your lazy ass a question and this is the answer I got ? You bore me, Bye, take care.

          • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

            Loser…

          • IKEM ONUOHA

            Hausa-Fulani-Yoruba should bury their faces in shame, how would you explain why an entirely military affair as regards the 1966 coup led to the slaughter of millions of Igbos in Northern Nigeria. What about the massacre of the Igbos in the bloody riots of Jos and Kano in 1945 and 1953 respectively in Northern Nigeria and the cycle of Igbo slaughter ever since then and now crowned by the Boko Haram insurgency. The plotters of the 1966 coup were not all Igbos. Even at that, Nzeogwu did not consult his kith and kin before embarking on the coup? Why should an ordinary Igbo man pay for what was clearly a military rebellion? Several officers of northern origin took part in Nigeria’s first military coup. The “Igbo coup” tag attached to the assault ignores the fact that scores of northern officers took part in the Lagos operations, and even assisted Nzeogwu when he stormed the residence of the Northern Region’s premier: Ahmadu Bello. Nzeogwu was later to describe the detachment of troops accompanying him to Bello’s house as “a truly Nigerian gathering” (New Nigerian – 18th January 1966). Nzeogwu pointed out that the northern soldiers accompanying him “had the chance to drop out. More than that, they had bullets. They had been issued with bullets but I was unarmed. If they disagreed they could have shot me….most of the Other Ranks were Northerners but they followed”. Among the prominent northern soldiers that helped Nzeogwu to overthrow the Northern Region’s government was John Atom Kpera. Kpera later became the military governor of Benue State. Many of the soldiers that accompanied Major Ifeajuna when he abducted the Prime Minister: Tafawa Balewa, were also northerners.

          • Julius

            I dont have time to read your poem. Sorry !. I understand that there are different stories/history made in Enugu. It has always been. Fact is they killed mainly Northern and Western officers. Abi na lie ? By the way, how did you expect them to react after you went around like savages in the middle of the night, killed their men and women ? See, the problem is there is no deep thinking by you the Ibos. You never think of what comes after your actions. Another case in point, Ojukwu started a war without much if any weapons . Abi na Yoruba man made him do that ?. After all the killings in the North, where did you run to ? South West !. Another lie ?

          • Otile

            Say you don’t understand good English, not that you don’t have time. Liar. You can’t even differentiate a prose from a poem. Where is the poem you are referring to? Dunce.

          • Julius

            No, I dont have the time reading some ranting illogical bullshit. Tell our boyfriend to make it short next time he has the need to respond to your master..Julius. If you dont, I’ll be spanking both of you daily. I know you sing each other to bed every night, Mofo faggot u !

    • Höly Wähala

      You dey fear Igbos when suya boys don bully Oba Akiolu into hiding ba? Misplaced fear of the unknown… Hahaha, Juliusie! Hahaha chaio!

      • Julius

        who dey fear IBos ?. Nobody can bully me, NOBODY !. Ibos cant do shyt other than issuing threats and make some noise. They usually beg after that. So, I know regardless of what they say now, they will come begging later. Its on the record. You do tat very well.

        • Höly Wähala

          Hahahahaha… you dey America dey run ya mouth abi? Talk is free indeed!

          • Julius

            hahahahahahaha, u danm right its free as it is free in Germany ! wey u dey run urs..abi.

            Don’t mind the_idiot. Our oil gave him free education and sent him US yet he is running his stinky mouth against his benefactors. Treacherous ingrate.

          • Julius

        • Otile

          See how stupid_you are. You always call them cowards, now you call them bullies. So you don’t know what bully means since you confuse it with coward. Dummy.

          • Julius

          • Otile

            Degenerate Yoruba man, Why are you so preoccupied with homosexuality? Try to grow up. Sorry, nature did not develop you beyond your base instincts and it shows in your low level behaviors. All your thoughts and behaviors recur around insults, hate, anger, sex organs, and all sorts of subhuman behavior. No amount of education will help you, your going to school is wasted education. You will remain subhuman all your life.

            While everybody else is commenting on this kangaroo court and perverted justice in Nigeria you are only commenting on your homosexual inclinations. Tomorrow you will be saying the same thing, bestial life indeed!

          • truth fact

            you are such a noise. shut up if your contribution can not solve this looming catastrophic problem this administration is over bloating ignorantly. our school of thoughts if not puppets of APC or buharimaniacs should have sued for referendum as this is the best practice in the world. mumu.

          • Julius

            lolz. You are trying too hard to make sense. You must be the Otile the fag boyfriend !. Tell the truth, you are both in love,aint u ?

      • Right Minded

        Wahala..where u go hide since???? Am sure you must be greatly regretting for supporting and campaigning for your wicked and evil minded Buhari. Av you just woken up from your slumber?

  • ed

    The judge should’ve ask the DSS to explain their part of the story. If an actual threat to live were made,
    charges must be laid against such out of control DSS.
    Judge Tsoho is unfit for the court if he allow that from the DSS.

    • emmanuel

      Another bribe taker is trully unfit. He would rather take the budget to Aso Villa himself just like Saraki because of his filt!

  • Cogito ergo sum

    Editor Premium Times,

    Was Minister Ocholi murdered?

    I have read yours and all other media accounts. I saw no clear-cut evidence of an accident. This is why.
    Even assuming that the driver of Minister Ocholi was overspeeding and pressed on the brakes suddenly,
    to cause the car to somersault, how come the driver suffered no skin bruises requiring hospital treatment?
    And how come the security car behind Minister Ocholi – which reportedly ran into Minister Ocholi’s car from
    the rear (according to some news reports) – did not report any injuries at all to any of that car’s occupants?
    I have raised these questions to enable the Police raise its gaze on other causes of death than a burst tyre.

    • APC is Doomed

      Everything you said could be possible. The drive could be on seatbelt and don’t forget that car has sophisticated airbags especially around the driver. those that died might have done so because they have no belts on. Always wear your belt. I think the man was discovered some distance from the car which means he was thrown out when the car was somersaulting. No harm intended. just candid input.

      • Arabakpura

        Your analysis is sound but APC is not doomed!

        • APC is Doomed

          Lol. Bro forget the name.

    • Arabakpura

      You think, therefore, you are!

    • NazirJos

      May be Minister Ocholi was anti Biafra, that’s why he was killed.

    • wode

      The answer is simply the because the guys (the driver & the Aide) in front most likely used seat-belt while the minister and others at the back seat(s) didn’t. It’s a common occurrence in such kind of accident. It’s really sad and most unfortunate.

All the trial judge needed to do, was to call the Buhari Gestapo–the DSS to order –period: Sadly for the Nation, the Judge as it is usual with most of the APC controlled judges in Nigeria, does not have the courage to do so–because EFCC ati DSS operatives have declared Judge Tosho, Yunusa ati Lawyer Ricky Tarfa wanted in the Luciferic Celestial Relm—-of Buhari——-So what do u expect him ati the Katsina DSS to do than dance to the tune of Buhari?———-Animals–

    Otile, you used to make intelligent contributions to issues. But these days you have descended into the hell-pit of tribal hullabaloo. How are the mighty fallen?

      otile has always been like that I wonder where you got his “intelligent contributions” from?

        Smelly cunt, must you always pollute the environment? Go wash you cunt and leave people in peace.

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    Nigerian security agencies should display their capability to handle the situation properly but anybody that may try to attack the DSS and police for doing their assigned duties should be dealt with severely.Nigeria is not a banana-republic.A felon is a felon and felon must face the consequence of their actions.Nnamdi Kanu remains in the penitentiary indefinitely and others blindly supporting him should be arrested and jailed along with him.

    • Don_C

      You are indeed a savage as the Europeans call you and complete coward. What makes Scotland free to secede from UK but not Biafra from Nigeria? What crime did Kanu commit or you think it is not within his rights to talk about self determination?
