Any Court Trying Me Is Committing Terrorism — Nnamdi Kanu

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that he cannot be tried in any Nigerian court, citing the country’s Constitution and international laws.

He said any court trying him is committing terrorism.

Following a Federal High Court ruling in Abuja that dismissed his applications for bail and transfer from Department of State Services custody, on Monday, Kanu addressed journalists at the court premises, asserting that the Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act prohibits his trial in Nigeria.

According to Kanu, the law states that he cannot be tried in any Nigerian court.

He quoted Section 2, Subsection 3(f) of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, which he claims labels anyone attempting to try him as a terrorist.

Kanu emphasized that any court proceeding with his trial would be committing an act of terrorism, according to the law.

He said, “Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act said that 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 3 F of Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, that is what it says.

“Any court continuing to try me is commiting an act of terrorism.”
