Lead counsel of Nnamdi Kanu's legal team, Chuks Muoma, berated the judge for being bias and asked for him to return the case file to the Chief Justice of the Federation and threatened that the case would be dragged to the International Court of Justice on failure of adhering to the request.
Muoma said in court:
"We are only asking the court to hands off; my client has lost confidence in this court. I understand that there is a letter to NJC, though I haven’t seen it and the CJ has replied saying that the matter will be investigatedIn his final ruling, Justice Tsoho said:
"I would urge you that you transfer the matter; I would suggest that it be sent back to the CJ."
"I have no interest in trying your matter and I will return it to the CJ, but I will condemn the attitude of that counsel. I do not care if you take your case to another planet.
"This case is hereby transferred to the CJ."
