Court Adjourns Trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu till Wednesday January, 19 2022

The Federal High Court siting in Abuja where the extraordinary rendition trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, is been held, has adjourned the court trial till Wednesday 19th, January 2022.



The adjournment coming after the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu filed a complaint that the Federal Government failed to promptly serve him the fresh 15 amended charges it brought before the court, which FG did serve him on Monday evening.


Kanu, through his team of lawyers led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Mike Ozekhome, further accused FG of denying him the necessary facility to defend the charge against him.



Ozekhome told the court that the amended charges were served on them barely 24 hours to the scheduled hearing.


“My Lord, the proposed amended charges were served on us yesterday (Monday) evening. As I speak to you my lord, the defendant, who was just brought in, has not even seen the charges which he is being told to enter his plea.


“With due respect, that is not justice, It is ambushing. I know that the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, allows FG to amend, but this is the sixth amendment they are making, and each time they do it, they serve us a day to the hearing, just to frustrate the trial,” 


Before Adjourning The Case, Justice Binta Nyako, Ordered The DSS, To Allow The Leader Of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu To Have A Change Of Cloth. she said


“I Don’t Want To See Him In This Cloth Again. This One Is Almost Off-white. Also Make Sure That You Allow Him To Exercise”, – Justice Nyako added.
