I am not a prophet of doom but the ability to always read the handwriting on the wall is a virtue, I put it forward that the Judge that would accept to preside over Nnamdi Kanu’s case will loathe. Nnamdi Kanu’s case is not a complex one neither is it a case that is twisted, it is a simple case that has to do with agitation. he is an activist arrested and charged with trumped up treasonable felony, the impossibility of one man to execute treasonable felony made his case a soft one. One thing that should always ring a bell in your head is, Nnamdi Kanu’s case is the epitome of the corruption in Nigeria.
The task before Nigerian court is to interpret self-determination or adjudicate and help cut the bigotry of Buhari through professional debate and decisions. This simple task proved weithy simply because corruption is upon it, you had imagined what corruption has done to the tiny case starring at the whole of Nigerian Judiciary. In spite of the fact that UN 2007 charter that was domesticated by Nigeria, which deals or explains the rights of Indigenous People is there; you start to wonder what is too hard for Nigerian Judges to decipher in this case.
Laughably, two judges had resigned on the case, their resignation simply as a result of corruption, I won’t believe that to interpret self-determination act or adjudicate on a civil matter will prove such stubborn, leading to the resignation of two trial judges. One thing is corruption causes stagnancy and that is what we are experiencing today in Nigeria; Nnamdi Kanu’s case is stagnant because corrupt Buhari won’t let a corrupt free adjudication or interpretation; any Judge that takes up the case will loathe unless there is unusual bravery to fight corruption.
Nnamdi Kanu on the other hand is a man that forbids corruption, he had proven that he is indeed whiter than white and never knowing corruption; he is the last man on this planet that would see corruption and fold his arms. He would fight corruption without boundaries or anywhere he sees it; having found sufficient corruption in his trial, he would indeed fight without looking back and with the last drop of his blood to conquer the corruption therein. As long as corruption persists, Nnamdi Kanu’s case will destroy a lot of people.
Justice John Tsoho is regretting why he danced to the beat of corruption by Buhari, his name had reached to the ends of the world as a corrupt Judge that disgraced Nigerian Judiciary. It would be interesting to see the Judge come to USA and say he is Tsoho that presided over Nnamdi Kanu’s case and we see the perception of him from foreigners. Even in Nigeria, it would be a hard thing for any defendant or accuser to go with the man when there is an interest on the table. Justice John Tsoho has destroyed a name he built for many years and being investigated by NJC; he might be made the scapegoat in this matter.
One thing Judges forget is that they have a legacy to preserve while a politician has nothing to preserve; when Buhari want to do a dirty job, he calls a Judge and the Judge finds himself on the receiving end while Buhari being the chief actor stays free. There is need for them to have a rethink and allow the horse to do the race by itself; putting the cart before the horse is such a thoughtless move. Buhari is there going about his businesses while Tsoho is here languishing in an effort to redeem his name. The worst that would come upon the thoughtless and puppet Judge is if NJC takes a punitive measure. Buhari might fight and save him from the blade of the NJC, but he cannot fight and save him from the perception of the public that now see him as a corrupt Judge that cannot be trusted.
Unless the Judge that would take up Kanu’s case will be brave enough to fight executive interference, he would definitely loathe. Fighting the executive interference is simply telling Nigerian government that self-determination is not a crime in any part of the world and Nigeria will not be different. Fighting executive interference is telling Buhari that incarceration of an activist is not legal and a peaceful activist at that is condemnable. At the end of the day, the justice therein is to release Nnamdi Kanu and urge the government to address the cause of the agitation or approach it lawfully.
