BREAKING: Justice Nyako Adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial [See New date]

Local

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court has adjourned the trial of the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Naija News reports that Justice Nyako adjourned the case of the pro-Biafra activist till 14 November 2022, pending the determination of the Appeal Court. It was gathered that Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team will approach the Court of Appeal following his bail denial by the High Court. Naija News had earlier reported that the secessionist had filed a fresh application seeking his release on bail pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him. The application, however, was trashed when Kanu and his legal team appeared before the court for hearing on Tuesday. Kanu specifically urged the court to set aside the order it made on March 28, 2019, which not only issued a bench warrant for his arrest but also gave FG the nod to try him in absentia. However, Justice Binta Nyako who is in charge of the case said on Tuesday that she was not satisfied with the reason the IPOB leader gave for his failure to appear in court for continuation of his trial.
