The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB], Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has stated that the presiding judge in his treason case, Justice Binta Nyako, by granting him bail, partook in an elaborate ploy with the Nigerian government to set him up for assassination.
Mazi Kanu stated this on his Twitter handle on Saturday.
Kanu deduced that her failure to investigate the military invasion of his home is clear confirmation that she is angry he survived the attack’.
It’s now obvious Justice Binta Nyako only agreed to grant me bail as part of an elaborate ploy with the Nigerian govt to set me up for assassination.

It could be recalled that Justice Nyako on Thursday revoked the bail granted to Nnamdi Kanu, on April 17, 2017, and ordered his arrest.
The court also directed his trial on charges of treasonable felony should proceed in his absence.
The judge said her order was based on the provisions of Section 352(4) of the Administrative of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.
She pointed out Kanu had failed to appear in court since April 25, 2017 without any reasonable explanation.
Reacting, Nnamdi Kanu vows to challenge his arrest in UK court.
On Saturday, meanwhile, he accused Nyako of participating in a failed ploy to assassinate him.
After the attack on his house in Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, Nnadi Kanu had disappeared and resurfaced recently in Israel and later in Europe.
