The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says the new judge, Justice Binta Nyako, appointed to take charge of Nnamdi Kanu's trial is unacceptable.

The group accused President Muhammadu Buhari of appointing Justice Binta to jail Kanu, its founder.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, October 25, by its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group called on the international community to keenly follow the trial as the new judge oversees it.

The statement reads: "The appointment of Justice  Binta Nyako as the trial judge for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case was masterminded by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

"The appointment came after the harassment and the intimidation of the judges who were working tirelessly to address the country’s injustice perpetrated by the government of the day in Nigeria.”

"The government of the contraption called Nigeria assigned her to make sure she jails Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has committed no crime against anybody in Nigeria.

"But we want to ask if the new trial judge, Binta Nyako, will jail people who did not commit any crime against the people?

"We are calling on international community and other wonderful men and women across the globe to mount their watch on the new trial judge assigned to be handling the case concerning the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra."
