The judge was said to have stepped aside after Kanu objected to the trial due to the Federal Government’s repeated disobedience of court orders relating to the case.

Federal High Court judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed has excused himself from hearing the treason case against Radio Biafra Director, Nnamdi Kanu, reports say.

Justice Mohammed reached the decision today, December 23, 2015, in Abuja, according to Premium Times.

The judge was said to have stepped aside after Kanu objected to the trial due to the Federal Government’s repeated disobedience of court orders relating to the case.

“If any of the parties has no confidence in the court, he has the right to say so. a$$uming it was the prosecution, if they had no confidence in the court of jurisdiction; would they not have done so?” Mohammed said.

“I hereby remit the case file to the honourable Chief Judge of this court to rea$$ign it,” he added.

The FG had filed a fresh charge of treason against Kanu on December 22 despite the Department of State Services (DSS) to release him unconditionally.

The decision was reached by Justice Adeniyi Ademola, also of the FHC, who held that the DSS’ continued detention of Kanu was unlawful.

The Radio Biafra boss was arrested in October and supposedly granted bail but he was never freed.

Kanu’s continued detention has led his followers to launch protests in various part of the country to demand his freedom.
