A viral video has emerged on social media where the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu on Tuesday exploded after learning that witnesses that will testify against him will give their testimony in secret.
In the footage, the embattled IPOB leader can be seen fuming in rage and saying he won’t allow President Muhammadu Buhari to jail him.

In the video, Kanu who, during his resumed trial on Tuesday, vehemently rejected the ruling of trial Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja who granted the Federal Government the nod to shield identities of witnesses billed to testify against him also threatened that he would expose secrets that will sink Nigeria finally.
“The person is MAD…completely MAD – Nnamdi Kanu reacts to ‘Secret Trial’

“Buhari went on national television to accuse me in public and he wants to try me in secret. I will not allow myself to be subjected to this kind of trial,” he fumed.
“They are mad!” he exclaimed, “tell Buhari that’s what I said- that he is mad!”
“I won’t stand this travesty of justice. Buhari spoke in public, he accused me in public. I must also be allowed to stand my trial in public,” Kanu fumed in court.
The IPOB leader is facing an 11-count charge alongside three other pro-Biafra agitators, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
Charges against the accused persons border on reasonable felony and their alleged involvement in acts of terrorism.
He continued: “This is nonsense. I will give testimony before this court. By the time I finish, there will be no Nigeria. This is no Sharia court. It is a court that operates under the common law.
“There will be no screening of witnesses, no fake identities or fake addresses. I cannot be tried in secret. No. Nnamdi Kanu cannot be jailed in secret. They are mad. Why must I be tried in secrecy by a government that does not obey court orders. “
They are killing my people in public. After killing my people, they want to try me in private? That person is mad. I won’t allow it.“
