Nnamdi Kanu’s trial adjourned sine die
The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on terrorism charges brought against him by the federal government, has been adjourned indefinitely by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
Judge Binta Nyako adjourned the case at Kanu’s request pending resolution of the federal government’s appeal against the Court of Appeal’s Oct. 13 ruling that acquitted him of terrorism charges.
Channels Television reported that two other cases billed for hearing in court have also been postponed indefinitely for the same reason.
The judge was also informed that Kanu refused to appear before her today, November 14. Federal government lawyer Mohammed Abubakar told the court that all pleas made to persuade Kanu to change his mind had been rebuffed.
