BREAKING: Court reserves judgement on Charges against Nnamdi Kanu

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reserved Judgment on an appeal filed by the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu challenging the seven charges levelled against him by the Federal Government.

Zolexreporters reports that Human Rights Lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who leads the delegation of legal practitioners representing Kanu, urged the Court to strike out the remaining charges citing lack of credibility.

The session at the Court of Appeal commenced at about 10 am on Tuesday as Kanu’s legal team mounted a strong defense against the allegations of terrorism and treasonable felony.

The case is presided over by Justice Jummai Hannatu Saki.

The hearing of Kanu’s appeal challenging the seven-count charge filed against him by the federal government was earlier slated for October 11 but was later brought forward to today, September 13.

It would be recalled that the federal government had re-arraigned Kanu on an amended 15-count charge bordering on treasonable felony. However, on May 28, the trial judge, Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja, struck out eight of the 15-count charge.

The Appeal marked No: CA/ABJ/CR/ 625/2022; is challenging the remaining seven-count against Kanu.
