A judge, John Tsoho has washed his hands off the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
Tsoho has been accused by Kanu’s lawyer, Chuks Muoma, of bias and acting a script by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I understand that there is a letter to NJC, though I haven’t seen it and the CJ has replied saying that the matter will be investigated,” he said.
“I would urge you that you transfer the matter; I would suggest that it be sent back to the CJ,” Muoma said.
Responding, the judge said: “I have no interest in trying your matter and I will return it to the CJ, but I will condemn the attitude of that counsel. I do not care if you take your case to another planet.” Justice Tsoho said.
Tsoho is the second judge to hand off Kanu’s trial in nine months.
