“I Can’t Be Tried In Nigerian Courts” – Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra who is now in detention, has disclosed the reasons why no Nigerian court will hear his case.

Kanu claimed that no national court could trial him because of Section 15 of the Nigeria Extradition Act.

This was his statement on Monday following the Federal High Court of Abuja’s denial of his bail plea and his desire to be transferred from the Department of State Services’ custody to a jail or house imprisonment.

The head of IPOB also stated that it would constitute terrorism for any court to attempt to trial him.

He said, “Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act said 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 in trial or coming to try me is a terrorist. That is what the law says, not me. Section 2, Subsection 3F of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, that is what it says.

“Any court continuing to try me is committing an act of terrorism.”

This, he said, was the reason his case was being delayed.

“They came to Kenya to kidnap me, brought me back to this country, and sought to try me, which the law says cannot happen.

“You cannot violate a treaty that was entered into and then hope to stand on that illegality to conduct a trial.

“It is not done anywhere in the world, and nobody has. There’s no exception, no exception whatsoever. That’s what the law says in Section 12.

“Nigeria becomes law, and it is law you cannot change. It doesn’t matter what they all do. This thing they are doing against me is just pure rubbish. You never stand not with me. I believe in justice and fairness, that’s all.” [CONTINUE READING HERE]
