DAY 1 OF COURT CASE: NNAMDI KANU TO APPEAR BEFORE APPEAL COURT IN ABUJA

DAY 1 OF COURT CASE: NNAMDI KANU TO APPEAR BEFORE APPEAL COURT IN ABUJA


The Court of Appeal, Abuja division on Thursday fixed April 25 to hear the appeal brought before it by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, and his co-accused, David Nwawusi and Benjamin Madubugwu.



Justice Moore Adumen who presided over a three-man panel of justices had told Kanu that his case could not be accommodated until after the vacation.

The appellants have accused the trial judge, Justice James Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja of bias.



Kanu and his two co-defendants are being prosecuted on six counts of treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and other offences bordering on alleged agitation for secession of the Republic of Biafra from Nigeria. They had approached the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal asking for an order to compel the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta, to withdraw the case from Justice Tsoho and re-assign it to another judge.



The defendants on Tuesday filed a one-ground notice of appeal, asking for an order setting aside Justice Tsoho’s ruling and transfer of the case to another judge of the Federal High Court.



As at 8:54 25th of April 2016, the presiding Judge Justice Adume Moore and appellant Nnamdi Kanu are not on sit. Both the appellant and defending counsels, are not yet in Court.



Stay tuned for more updates!
