Nnamdi Kanu who was live yesterday on a world press conference in Jerusalem, vowed to return to country as he revealed why he left Nigeria.
The IPOB leader who was charged with treason but granted bail by Justice Binta Nyako after 18 months in detention, stated that Nigerian courts do not have the capacity to try him. According to him, there is something fundamentally wrong with the brains of those that rule Nigeria.
Nnamdi Kanu who fled the country and resurfaced last Friday in Jerusalem after almost a year, said;
“The Nigerian court is a Kangaroo court. I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me. I shall not be honouring the court. I cannot be tried by a court I do not recognise. The zoo called Nigeria cannot jail me. I will fight till the last day. Till now, Binta Nyanko’s court has yet to hold a hearing about the circumstances that led the Nigerian Army to come to my house to kill 28 people. Only upon a clear pronouncement of the intentions of that very court, which I suggest to them should be free, will this very case move forward. Going forward, there must be guarantee from the international community so that this case can proceed and I will prove once and for all that there is something fundamentally wrong with the brains of those that rule Nigeria.”
Recall that Justice Binta Nyako ordered him not to attend any rally, grant interviews or be in a gathering of more than 10 persons.
The Judge in addition ordered that the defendant should produce three sureties with N100 million each, who should include a highly respected Jewish leader since, according to her, the defendant claimed Judaism as his religion, a senior and highly placed individual of Igbo extraction and in the ranking of a senator, while the last is expected to be a respected individual resident in Abuja with proof of ownership of landed property.
Nnamdi Kanu, a former real estate agent in London, was also ordered to deposit his international passport, including his British passport with the court. He was released after meeting all the bail conditions. It is, however, unclear how he left Nigeria for Israel without his travel documents and his trial has stalled due to his consistent absence from court.
