Biafra: Real Reason Why Justice Tsoho hands-off Kanu, others trial


Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, announced his disqualification from presiding over the trial of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

Nnamdi Kanu who has been in detention since October 14, 2015, is answering to a six-count treason charge alongside two other pro-Biafra agitators, David Nwawusi and Benjamin Madubugwu.



At the resumed of today's (September 26th) sitting on the matter, Justice Tsoho who earlier denied Kanu and others bail, stated his decision to hands-off the matter on a petition pending against him before the National Judicial Council, NJC.

He said; It was in the best interest of justice that he (Justice John Tsoho) stepped aside from the trial, considering the weight of allegations the defendants levelled against him before the NJC.

It will be recalled that Kanu and his co-accused persons had in a joint petition they filed through their lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the NJC that Justice Tsoho indulged in act of “judicial rascality”, by delivering conflicting rulings on the same subject matter.
