Judge Binta also stated that she will demand that every defending counsel must study Sharia Law.
“I want you to understand that, whether their is an application before this court or not, trial must go on,
“If the defending counsel applies more than hundred times, the secret trial must take place,” Binta told the defendants who had earlier applied for bail.
“The witnesses must wear a mask and must not be facially identified,
“Nothing can change my ruling. There must be a secret trial,” Judge Binta Nyako stated.
The counsel to the first defendant, Barrister Ejiofor objecated the ruling of the judge, saying that it is grossly against the human rights of the defendants to a fair hearing.
The Presiding judge refused the objection and adjourned the case to, 6th of April 2017.
