Court Reserves Judgment In Nnamdi Kanu’s Appeal, adjourns indefinitely

Written by on September 13, 2022

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, reserved its judgement on an appeal the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB,  Nnamdi Kanu, filed to quash the terrorism and treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him.

The IPOB leader, who is currently facing trial before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, had through his team of lawyers led by Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, approached the appellate court to query the legal competence of the charge pending against him.

Kanu is seeking to quash the terrorism and treasonable felony charge preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Kanu is praying the court to review the April 8 ruling of the trial court which struck out only eight out of the 15-count charge.

He is insisting that the charge entered against him by the federal government had no basis in law.

The IPOB leader also urged the appellate court to order his release on bail, pending the determination of his appeal.

Though the appeal was initially fixed for October 11, following an application the embattled IPOB leader filed for abridgement of time, the appellate court brought the matter forward for hearing.
