The Supreme court of Nigeria will today hear the appeal filed by the legal representatives of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, since he was renditioned to Nigeria in June 2021, has been held under custody of the Department of Security Service, DSS, pending his continuous court hearing.
Also, appeal court of Nigeria sitting in Abuja had on October 10th, 2022 – ordered Kanu to be released, a judgement which was also appealed by the legal representatives of the Federal government with trumped up charges bordering on treason.
Following his continued detention by the DSS, Kanu’s legal representatives led by lawyer, Mike Ozekhome and Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, filed an appeal at the supreme court praying the apex court to throw out FG’s appeal and uphold the Appeal Court verdict.
In a twitter post, Ejiofor announced that the Supreme Court will today hear their appeal and hoping that the court will deliver in their favor.
“…the Supreme Court of Nigeria will this morning, hear Appeal over the continued illegal detention of our indefatigable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“We are very firm in our belief that the Almighty ChukwuOkike Abiama will take absolute control of today’s proceedings. His Grace will prevail in judgement over today’s outing at the Supreme Court 🙏.
“We shall keep you all updated on the outcome of the legal fireworks that will ensue in the Court today,” Ejiofor tweeted.
