Nnamdi Kanu Gets New Court Deal

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has gotten a new deal from the Abuja Federal High Court, FCT, which spells out the requirements to start processing a fresh bail condition.

He was given three days to present his case for fresh bail and to challenge the competence of the new terrorism charges that was presented against him by the federal government of Nigeria.

It would be recalled that on October 21, last year, Kanu received a seven-count charge on terrorism where he however pleaded not guilty to the various charges levelled against him as he further chose to contest the validity of the alleged heinous crimes.

On Sunday, the Federal High Court presented a hearing notice in a bid to determine the two motions filed the acclaimed leader of IPOB which emphasised the point that only three days had been slated to address the case.

It was gathered that the hearing notice was served through the Nigerian Government via the Federal Ministry of Justice and to Kanu, a process that involved his lead counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

The particular date fixed for the hearing is January 18, 19 and 20 to squarely address the two motions presented to the court.

However, the IPOB leader is also expected to use the three days to contest the court’s jurisdiction to conclude the trial on the terrorism charge following the alleged offences that were supposedly committed in the United Kingdom and not in Nigeria.
