Nnamdi Kanu Makes Surprise Move As Trial Resumes At Federal High Court In Abuja

Published by admin on

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has opted for new legal representation as his trial resumes at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

A fresh legal team led by Alloy Ejimakor will now spearhead Kanu’s defense against the 7-count charges, replacing the previous team led by Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, with reasons for the switch undisclosed.

Despite the change, the courtroom is filled with lawyers and supporters of Kanu, showing solidarity with the Biafra agitation.

Kanu faces charges including terrorizing people through broadcasts, being the leader of IPOB, spreading messages inciting violence, and more.

The trial follows a Supreme Court ruling that he must face trial after earlier judgments were set aside.

Kanu’s defense may reapply for bail as he has been in custody since his rearrest in June 2021.
