IPOB: Kanu’s Trial Adjourned Till January 2022

Following the detention and trial of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, it has been reported that Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday has adjourned Kanu’s  trial till January 19, 2022.

According to reports, the trial was adjourned due to confusions as Kanu’s team of lawyers staged a walkout over the refusal of operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, to allow some of them to gain access into the courtroom.

Kanu, who was reportedly brought into the courtroom around 9.52am, had shortly after his case was called up bemoaned the refusal of security agents to allow some members of his legal team, especially his lawyer from the United State of America, Bruce Fein, to enter the courtroom.

Kanu reportedly told Justice Nyako that Fein, who was handling a case for him in the US, was around to witness his trial.

According to him, “I have an ongoing case in the US. I have not been allowed to see him. He is here to see me and to observe the proceedings.”

He added that, “He has been to the DSS to see me, but they denied him access to me.”

When Kanu was reportedly asked by the Judge if he was ready to conduct the proceedings himself, in the absence of his lawyers, he said no.

Delivering a short ruling, Justice Nyako reportedly expressed displeasure over the conduct of Kanu’s lawyers, and declined to dismiss the pending application and rather adjourned the case till January 19 and 20, 2022, for trial.
