Court postpones Nnamdi Kanu date of Appeal

The Court OF Appeal has fixed Tuesday 13th day of September  for the listening of the appeal filed by the leader of  the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, against the Federal Government.

The initial date fixed by the court  for the hearing of the appeal was October 11, 2022.

But the court postponed the date to next week Tuesday and the new date was disclosed by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamd Kanu’s lawyer.

A statement was made by Ejiofor which stated: “Our Appeal No: CA/ABJ/CR/ 625/2022; between Nnamdi Kanu vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria, earlier scheduled for Hearing on the 11th Day of October, 2022, has been postponed to the 13th of September, 2022.

“Your petitions and persistent prayers are certainly of a good influence.

Nnamdi is challenging the remaining seven count charges filed against him by the Nigerian government.

Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court, on April 8, struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against Kanu.

Following the ruling, Kanu headed to the Appeal Court to challenge the remaining charges.

The hearing on Kanu Appeal, of the Charge filed against him, will be coming up for Hearing at the Court of Appeal Abuja, next Tuesday, being the 13th Day of September, 2022.”

Kanu is standing trial before Justice Nyako over his agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
