The Federal Government has arrived at the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday to continue the battle against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who was earlier set free by the court from the terrorism charge against him.
At the appellate court today, the FG is asking the court to stay the execution of the judgment of October 13 which voided the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria on account of breach of local and international laws.
A three-panel of the court would determine the FG’s motion on notice, according to a notice of appeal marked CA/ABJ/CR/625/2025, sighted by newsmen.
Kanu’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, (SAN), leading the legal team, is in the court, alongside a senior lawyer, Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Armed policemen have been stationed at the entrance of the Court subjecting all incoming vehicles and their occupants to screening to avoid security breaches.
The PUNCH reports that the appellate court, sitting in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, on October 13, upheld the appeal of Kanu.
The court also discharged and acquitted the embattled leader of the proscribed group.
