A Federal High Court in Abuja has postponed Nnamdi Kanu’s trial on terrorism-related charges brought against him by the Federal Government. Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group that has been outlawed.
At Kanu’s request, Justice Binta Nyako put the case on hold while the Federal Government appealed the Court of Appeal’s decision from October 13 exonerating him of all charges related to terrorism.
According to Channels Television, two additional cases that were scheduled for court hearings were also postponed indefinitely for the same reason.
Kanu declined to show up in front of the judge on today, November 14. The Federal Government’s counsel, Mohammed Abubakar told the court that all entreaties made to persuade Kanu to have a change of heart were rebuffed.
