A’Court Moves Nnamdi Kanu’ Case To Supreme Court

By abdullah

The Federal Government’s request for a stay of the October 13 judgment’s execution—which freed Nnamdi Kanu—was approved by the Court of Appeal on Friday.

Additionally, according to Justice Haruna Tsanammi’s order, the Supreme Court must receive the decision’s outcome within seven days of the appeal’s filing for a prompt hearing.

As a result, Nnamdi Kanu, the self-described leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is anticipated to continue being held by the Department of State Services until the Supreme Court hears the issue.

A three-man panel of the Court of Appeal said the Federal High Court lacks the jurisdiction to try him in view of his abduction and extraordinary rendition to Nigeria in flagrant violation of the OAU convention and protocol on extradition.

The court also held charges preferred against Kanu did not disclose the place, date, time and nature of the alleged offences before being unlawfully extradited to Nigeria in clear violation of international treaties.

To stop Kanu’s subsequent release, the Federal Government had applied that the execution of the judgment be suspended pending the resolution of its appeal lodged at the Supreme Court.

Justice Tsanammi on Friday held that the counter affidavit filed against the Federal Government’s application by Kanu’s legal team was misleading.
