Though details are still  bit sketchy, reasons of his opting out of the case are still not known as at time of filing this report
Mr. Kanu is facing treason charges brought by the Nigerian government for leading a separatist group and has been in detention since October 2015.
The first judge in the case, Ahmed Mohammed, stepped down in December 2015, after Mr. Kanu said he had no confidence in him.
It would be recalled that in a  petition to the National Judicial Council, Mr. Kanu accused Justice Tsoho of “judicial rascality” and called for his investigation by the council.
