NNAMDI KANU DRAGS FG TO APPEAL COURT OVER AMENDED SEVEN CHARGES ON TERRORISM

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has dragged the Federal Government to the Court of Appeal to challenge the amended seven charges on terrorism granted by Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The IPOB leader was challenging the decision of the court as contained in the ruling and final decision retaining counts to 8 and 15 of the amended charge, delivered on April 8, 2022.

Kanu had in the application he filed through his team of lawyers, Mr. Mike, Mr. Ozekhome (SAN), and  Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, maintained that the charge against him was legally defective.

He had argued that the court lacked the jurisdiction to try him on the strength of an incompetent charge.

Ozekhome had told the court that his client was “unlawfully, brutally and extraordinarily renditioned from Kenya without his consent”.

He had argued that since some of the allegations levelled against Kanu, were purportedly committed outside the country, the court, therefore, lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the charge.
