Court Adjourns IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu’s Case

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned the hearing of the case of terrorism against Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to 19th and 20th of June, 2024.

Justice Nyako dismissed the the bail application and transfer from Department of State Services custody, on Monday, filed by Aloy Ejimakor, counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu stating that he jumped bail previously.

In his defence, Kanu pointed out that he cannot be tried in any court in Nigeria citing Section 2, Subsection 3(f) of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, which he claims labels anyone attempting to try him as a terrorist.

“Terrorism Prohibition and Prevention Act said that I cannot be tried in Nigeria, that is the law of Nigeria. I can never be tried in any court of law in Nigeria. That is what the law says.

“Anyone standing in trial or coming to try me is a terrorist. That is what the law says, not me.  Section 2, Subsection 3 F of the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act, that is what it says.

“Any court continuing to try me is committing an act of terrorism.”
