Court Adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial Till January 2022

Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer was barred from the court after he left to address harassment by security operatives.

The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to Jan. 19 and 20, 2022.

Kanu is facing charges of terrorism and inciting sedition in the Southeast.

Justice Binta Nyako announced the adjournment in the absence of Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer who left the courtroom in anger to attend to security agents barring members of his legal team from accessing the court premises.

The judge arrived before Ejiofor could re-enter the courtroom.

Ejiofor said the court proceeding without his presence was an infringement on the right to fair hearing.
