Nnamdi Kanu hopes to finally defeat FG at Supreme Court on December 15th

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday expressed hope of victory in the Supreme Court on December 15th.

On December 15, the Supreme Court will hear the federal government’s appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision to acquit Kanu of all terrorism charges.

In 2022, an appeals court declared Kanu’s abduction from Kenya to Nigeria illegal and quashed all terrorism charges brought against him by the federal government.

The court found that the federal government violated all local and international laws when it forcibly extradited Mr. Kanu to Nigeria, thereby rendering the terrorism charges against him incompetent and illegal.

In a ruling by Justice Oludotun Adefope Okojie on Kanu’s appeal, the federal government’s criminal charges against him were vacated and stayed.

Dissatisfied with this decision, the federal government went to the Supreme Court to challenge the Court of Appeals’ decision.

The Supreme Court had set December 15th as the date to issue a decision on the matter.

Mr. Kanu expressed his hope for victory during a regular meeting with his legal team at the State Department’s DSS facility in Abuja.

This was disclosed by Kanu’s special public prosecutor, Aloy Ejimakor, in a post on X.

According to Ejimakor, “Update: Today, Chief Advocate General Kanu Agabi (SAN) led my humble self and Prince Mandela Umegbolog on an important visit with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the DSS. As expected, Onyedu was happy with his recent impressive win in Enugu and is hoping for a similar victory at SC on December 15th.

“During the pogroms, you confiscated their property in the Rivers, deceived them in the creation of a state, starved their roads, railways and ports, handed over their leaders and called them dots. Now you are bothering them with #demolitions. But you wonder why they #incite. Why not? #FreeMNK.”
