Concise News reports that the IPOB leader made this statement during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra over the weekend.

This online news platform understands that the broadcast of Kanu was focused on Nigeria’s judiciary where he also berated judges in Nigeria, describing them as “corrupt”.

During the broadcast, the IPOB leader added that “none of the judges in Nigeria obey the law”, noting that “everyone is corrupt in Nigeria” including the Acting CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad.

“Nigerian NJC is based on corruption, none of the judges in Nigeria obey the law. Everyone is corrupt,” he said.

Also speaking on his bail being revoked by Justice Binta Nyako, Kanu berated the judge, wondering why she would give such a judgment even when her child is facing trial.

Kanu said Justice Nyako has shown by her judgment that she is not a mother, noting that she would have thought of her son’s case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and act like a mother.

The broadcast is coming after a Federal High Court presided over by Justice Nyako in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, last month, revoked Kanu’s bail and also ordered his immediate arrest.
