Court Adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial Indefinitely

The trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group that has been declared illegal by the federal government, has been postponed indefinitely by the Federal High Court of Abuja.

Kanu requested that Justice Binta Nyako postpone the trial sine die pending the outcome of the Federal Government’s appeal against the October 13 Court of Appeal ruling that cleared him of the terrorism charges.

The Supreme Court is hearing the Federal Government’s appeal, which asks them to reverse the Court of Appeal ruling.

For the same reason, two further cases that were scheduled for court hearings were also postponed indefinitely.

Kanu declined to show up on Monday in front of the Federal High Court.

Justice Nyako was informed of the refusal to respect the high court by Mohammed Abubakar, counsel for the Federal Government.

He told the court that Kanu had rejected all attempts to sway him to modify his mind.
