Biafra: Supreme Court adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s trial till next month
The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, till next month.
The decision of the Supreme Court was disclosed in a tweet by Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor.
Tweeting, Ejimakor wrote: “Sadly, the Supreme Court has adjourned the #MNK appeal hearing to next month.”
The secessionist had, on November 3, 2022, filed an appeal at the Supreme Court against the Court of Appeal’s ruling halting his release from DSS custody.
Kalu appealed against the October 28, 2022, decision of the Court of Appeal, which stayed the execution of its earlier order acquitting him of all charges and directing his release from the custody of the secret police.
Prior to the hearing, Kanu’s Special Counsel had urged the Supreme Court to ensure justice in the trial of the IPOB leader, stressing that his matter should end today.
Many prominent Igbo leaders, as well as the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, have been clamoring for Kanu’s release before President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure ends in one month, precisely on May 29, 2023.
