According to Justice Nyako, the witnesses will be brought in and taken out of the court in a discreet manner. She added that it is not a secret trial.
“It is not going to be a secret trial. The court will allow the defendants see the witnesses. The defendant counsel will also see the witnesses,” the judge saidThis position however did not go well with Kanu who flared up and began to shout in the court. Justice Binta had to caution him.
“If you don’t stop talking in my court I will assume you are becoming a nuisance in my court. And if I assume so, I will continue this trial in your absence, so do not try my patience. When you are in my court you will do what I want. It’s like having a visitor in your house; you can serve the visitor food but if he wants to eat he will eat and if he doesn’t want to, he will not.”An angry Kanu continued yelling
"I will address this court! You cannot be killing my people and tell me that you will make me have a secret trial. That won’t happen! The president can intimidate the judges, but he cannot do that to me. Tell him he has lied,”he said
