What is it like for Nnamdi Kanu?
For the kinds of Chief Mike Ozekhome, Chief Chukwuma Machukwu Ume and the unknown SAN to accept to defend Nnamdi Kanu, one can attest to the fact that the release of Nnamdi Kanu is imminent.
Kanu is a freedom fighter who has for more than 10 years fought for the emancipation of the Biafran nation.
Kanu was kidnapped in Kenya and subsequently brought back to Nigeria to continue his trial.
His lawyers however have filed a 30 point application countering the 15 count charges posed by the Nigerian government through Malami, the Attorney-General of the federation against Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu’s lawyers are of the view that since Kanu was kidnapped from a different country and repatriated to Nigeria without due processes, the Nigerian government lacks jurisdiction to continue with the trial.
The case between Nnamdi Kanu and the Nigerian government is set to continue on the 8th of April at the Binta Nyako’s High Court Abuja for a final ruling on whether Nigeria has rights to prosecute Nnamdi Kanu.
