They’re saying that I can’t be jailed in Uyo prison because of COVID protocol, that I have to be in Ikot Ekpene prison. Uyo prison has rejected me. We are going back to the court now for His Lordship to determine where I should be jailed. History will vindicate the just.

The moment My Lord entered the Courtroom, His Lordship ordered the orderly attached to the court to go out and bring the armed policemen inside the courtroom. I started feeling that there was going to be trouble. After the Premium Times reporter was sent out, I raised the issue.

The Chief Judge of Akwa Akwa Ibom ordered a Premium Times reporter to leave the court. I said my lord, we were thinking that since the proceeding is public, that members of the public should be allowed to observe the proceeding. My Lord asked me to proceed with cross examination.

I obeyed. I informed the court that I was not feeling comfortable and safe having two armed mobile policemen seated inside the courtroom, that it was strange and that I felt unsafe. I applied for the judge to excuse the armed policemen from the courtroom.

The video of terrorists torturing kidnapped Kaduna train victims is heart wrenching. Why are people still supporting Buhari and his murderous regime? Why?

When will we say that we have had it enough as a people? Section 14 of the Constitution says that security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government. This means that a government that fails in security has failed in everything.

If Buhari is your biological father or you’re related to him by blood, I can excuse your silence because of family and blood ties. But if your only relationship with him is that he is your unfortunate President, you have no sensible reason still supporting this man.

If your continued support is propelled by religion and ethnicity or political partisanship, then you’re not worthy to be called a citizen of this country. How can you be supporting a regime that has inflicted so much pain on this country? This is simply insane.
