A Federal High Court in Abia State has adjourned a suit filed on behalf of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, against the Federal Government.
The court had assigned the suit for hearing today (November 2) but it has now been adjourned for reasons that are yet to be clear.
According to Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, the suit was seeking his client’s unconditional release from ‘illegal detention’.
“I am saddened by this untoward development over a suit that seeks the unconditional release of Kanu from his illegal detention,” Ejimakor said.
Meanwhile, the previous judge presiding over the matter had hinted that he would not continue and therefore, called on the Chief Judge to reassign the matter to another judge.
Kanu was first arrested in 2015 on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, managing an unlawful society, publication of defamatory matter, illegal possession of firearms, and improper importation of goods, among others.
