[VIDEO] It’s Illegality,’ I Cannot Be Tried By Any Court In Nigeria – Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has faulted his trial, claiming it is illegal.

Kanu spoke on Monday after a proceeding to determine his bail request at the Federal High Court in Abuja, insisting that no Nigerian court can try him.

Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act said I cannot be tried in Nigeria. That is the law of Nigeria. I can never be tried in any court of law in Nigeria. That is what the law says.

Anyone standing in trial or coming to try me is a terrorist. That is what the law says, not me. Section 2, Subsection 3F of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, that is what it says, Kanu said.  “Any court continuing to try me is committing an act of terrorism.

He said, You cannot violate a treaty that Nigeria entered into. You entered my house and then came to try me, that is not done anywhere in the world so you must be aware that that is where there are all these ridiculous delays that is what the Supreme Court says, I did not jump bail, my home was invaded they came to kill me and I survived.

They came to Kenya to kidnap me, brought me back to this country, and sought to try me, which the law says cannot happen.

You cannot violate a treaty that was entered into and then hope to stand on that illegality to conduct a trial.

It is not done anywhere in the world, and nobody has. There’s no exception, no exception whatsoever. That’s what the law says in Section 12.
