Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), made a furious outburst in court. It will surely set his trial on a new course that Nigerians may not have seen coming. 

The IPOB leader said he could not be tried in Nigeria because “according to the Nigerian constitution, any court that tries him is committing an act of terrorism”.

Also, he claimed that any attempt to put him on trial would amount to a breach of the Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act and international laws.

Kanu stated this after Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court on Monday, May 20, dismissed his fresh bail application as well as his request to be moved from DSS custody to house arrest.

Nnamdi Kanu told the court that he could not be tried in Nigeria because the Supreme Court had declared his forceful rendition from Kenya an act of illegality.

Furthermore, he insisted that the Supreme Court had made a pronouncement on his issue, stressing that “anything you do on the contrary is an act of terrorism”.

He quoted Section 2, Subsection 3(f) of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, which he claims labels anyone or any court attempting to try him as a terrorist.

“The Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act said that I cannot be tried in Nigeria; that is the law of Nigeria.

“I can never be tried in any court of law in Nigeria. That is what the law says. Anyone standing on trial or coming to try me is a terrorist. That is what the law says, not me.
