Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has insulted President Muhammadu Buhari for ‘attempting to jail him.’

Kanu made the comments after losing his temper on Tuesday, December 13, during a trial hearing at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The IPOB leader was reacting to the decision of the court to shield witnesses who would testify against him.

“I won’t stand this travesty of Justice. Buhari spoke in public, he accused me in public. I must also be allowed to stand my trial in public,” he said.

“This is nonsense! I will give testimony before this court! By the time I finish, there will be no Nigeria. This is no Sharia court. It is a court that operates under the common law.

“There will be no screening of witnesses, no fake identities or fake addresses. I cannot be tried in secret. No! Nnamdi Kanu cannot be jailed in secret! They are mad. Why must I be tried in secrecy by a government that does not obey court orders?

“They are killing my people in public, after killing my people they want to try me in private? That person is mad. I won’t allow it. Tell Buhari that’s what I said; that he is mad. He cannot jail me. He cannot jail me. He’s a mad man…” he added.

Kanu is facing charges of treasonable felony due to his activities as the Director of Radio Biafra.
