Court Adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial In Terrorism Charges 

A Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned indefinitely the trial of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in the terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government.  

Justice Binta Nyako was said to have put off the trial sine die at the instance of Kanu, pending the resolution of the Federal Government’s appeal against the October 13 judgment of the Court of Appeal that discharged him from the terrorism charges, Daily Post reports. 

The Federal Government’s appeal seeking reversal of the Court of Appeal judgment is pending before the Supreme Court.

Kanu was said to have refused to appear in court on Monday in protest against the refusal of the federal government to release. 

The refusal to honour the High Court was conveyed to Justice Binta Nyako by the Federal Government counsel, Mr Mohammed Abubakar.

According to a report by Daily Post, Mr Abubakar informed the court that all entreaties made to persuade him to have a change of heart were rebuffed.

Kanu was said to have stood his ground not to appear in court until the October 13 judgment of the Court of Appeal is respected and obeyed by releasing him from the custody of the Department of the State Service, DSS, in Abuja.
