An Abuja Federal High Court has adjourned the hearing of the case of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, said the legal team of the Biafra agitator is determined to join issues with the “never-ending case” that has lasted for nine years.
The court had scheduled February 8 for the hearing of Kanu’s terrorism charges following the December judgment of the Supreme Court.
In December, the Supreme Court transferred Kanu’s case back to the Federal High Court for the continuation of trial.
This was after the apex court upturned the Appeal Court ruling that discharged and acquitted Kanu of all terrorism charges.
Reacting, Ejimakor described the adjournment as a setback.
Posting on X on Wednesday, Ejimakor wrote: “Sadly, the Federal High Court hearing of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case set for 8th Feb has been ADJOURNED. Despite this setback, the Legal Team is poised for a short date, as we stand ready to join issues with this never-ending case, spanning nine years from 2015. All processes are in.”
