Supreme Court fixes Dec. 15 for judgment in Nnamdi Kanu’s case

    The Supreme Court has fixed December 15 for judgment in the appeals filed by the Federal Government and the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

    The apex court chose the date after the Federal Government lawyer, Tijani Gazali (SAN), and Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the counsel to Mazi Kanu, made their final submissions on Thursday.

    It could be recalled that the Court of Appeal had quashed the treasonable felony charge against Kanu.

    The appellate court also ordered that Kanu be released on the grounds that he was unlawfully brought back to the country after he jumped bail.

    Gazali, speaking on behalf of the federal government, asked the court to set aside the earlier judgment by the Court of Appeal.

    Ozekhome, speaking on behalf of Kanu, asked the court to allow the judgment of the appeal court and set aside the later order that stayed the execution of the judgment.
