Supreme Court to Rule on Nnamdi Kanu on December 15

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has fixed December 15 to deliver judgment in the appeal filed by the Federal Government against the judgement of Court of Appeal that quashed the criminal charges against the leader of the  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun announced the judgment date after hearing arguments from Kanu’s legal team led by Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN, and Tijani Gazali SAN, the lawyer to the Federal Government.

The Federal Government, had through their lawyer urged the apex court to uphold the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja that upheld seven count charges against Kanu.

Opposing the position of the federal government, Chief  Ozekhome maintained that the Federal Government has since 2021 been detaining Kanu illegally and unlawfully.

Ozwkhome therefore, urged the Supreme Court to uphold the judgment of the Court of Appeal which quashed the charges against Kanu and ordered his immediate release.
