Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, was previously cleared by the court of the terrorism accusation against him. On Monday, the Federal Government came to the Court of Appeal in Abuja to resume its fight against him.
The FG is seeking the appellate court to halt the execution of the ruling from October 13 that invalidated Kanu’s extradition from Kenya to Nigeria due to a violation of domestic and international law.
FG’s motion on notice would be decided by a three-panel court, according to an appeal notice with the designation CA/ABJ/CR/625/2025 that newsmen observed.
Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the legal team’s leader, and Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a seasoned attorney, are present in court with Kanu.
Armed police officers were stationed at the court’s entrance, checking arriving cars and their occupants to prevent security breaches.
On October 13, the Federal Capital Territory’s appellate court in Abuja upheld Kanu’s appeal.
Additionally, the court freed and exonerated the troubled group’s leader.
