Nnamdi Kanu: Appeal Court Declines FG’s Request For Adjournment


On Monday, the Court of Appeal declined to allow the Federal Government's plea to postpone the hearing on the appeal to prevent the execution of the ruling that cleared Nnamdi Kanu of all accusations of terrorism brought against him by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Federal Government was given till today at noon by the court to move its application.

At the day's sessions, Kanu's attorney Mike Ozekhome complained that the Federal Government's counsel, David Kaswe, had served him with a counter affidavit last Friday.

Kaswe asserted that he received notification of one more authority this morning and that he needed time to respond.

However, Kanu's attorney protested to the motion, arguing that since only one additional authority had been served, the Federal Government shouldn't have been allowed to obtain an adjournment based only on that authority.

Ozekhome asserted that the government has not yet complied with the court judgment requiring Kanu's release from prison from October 13.

He testified before the court that Kanu's freedom was being violated since he was dying. He also pleaded with the court to deny any requests for adjournments.

Justice Haruna Tsanami, the presiding judge, then granted the Federal Government till 12 o'clock today to file its plea for a stay of the judgment's implementation and to reply to the new authority given by Kanu's legal team.
