There was drama in court when Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Abuja refused to hear the Nnamdi Kanu case that was assigned to him.
Nnamdi Kanu said he felt he would not receive a fair trial by the court and was raising an objection.
The Judge ruled that he was standing down from the case because Nnamdi Kanu had the right to reject the chance to stand trial.
Reacting to the whole drama, the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olufemi Fani-Kayode praised Justice Mohammed for being courageous enough to reject the sitting.
He said: “Finally a hero emerges. Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Abuja has refused to hear the Nnamdi Kanu case that was assigned to him on the grounds that the executive and the security agencies no longer abide by court orders and rulings.
“It is men like this that inspire us and give us hope. Thank God there are still such courageous people on the Bench and in on our country.
“When you seek justice and fairness for others and you stand for the oppressed and villified, God will stand and speak for u. I am so proud of this man. Well done sir.”
