The hearing for Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader, was postponed by the Supreme Court on Thursday until the next month.
Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s Special Counsel, tweeted on the Supreme Court’s ruling. “Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has postponed the #MNK appeal hearing to next month,” tweeted Ejimakor. On November 3, 2022, the secessionist appealed the Court of Appeal’s decision to prevent his release from DSS custody to the Supreme Court.
Kalu filed an appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision from October 28, 2022, which suspended the execution of its previous judgement clearing him of all accusations and ordering his release from the secret police’s custody.
Prior to the hearing, Kanu’s Special Counsel pleaded with the Supreme Court to ensure justice in the IPOB leader’s trial and emphasized that his case should be resolved right away.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo and numerous notable Igbo leaders have been calling for Kanu’s release before President Muhammadu Buhari’s term ends exactly one month from now, on May 29, 2023.
