FG, Nnamdi Kanu Visits The Appeal Court

The Federal Government has arrived at the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday for the continuation of the battle against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who was earlier set free by the court from the terrorism charge against him.

The Federal Government is asking the court to stay the execution of the judgment of October 13 which voided the extradition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria on account of breach of local and international laws.

According to a notice of appeal marked CA/ABJ/CR/625/2025 which was sighted by newsmen, a three-panel of the court would determine the FG’s motion on notice.

Leading the legal team was kanu’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, (SAN) and Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, also a senior lawyer.

To avoid security breaches there were armed policemen at the entrance of the court as incoming vehicles and their occupants were thoroughly screened.
