The Federal High Court has adjourned the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to June 28 for hearing and ruling.
IPOB Lead Counsel Ifeanyi Ejiofor made this known on Wednesday, May 25.
Ejiofor said his team was informed on Wednesday morning by the Federal High Court’s Registrar that the Court will no longer be sitting today, May 26, because the presiding Judge, Justice Binta Nyako is indisposed.
Ejiofor said: “Please be informed that we have just received communication from the Federal High Court’s Registrar, notifying us that the Court will no longer be sitting tomorrow, 26th May 2022, on Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case.
“According to the Registrar, this is because His lordship, Justice Binta Nyako, is indisposed, and as such, the matter is now adjourned to the 28th day of June 2022 for Ruling/Hearing.
“We most respectfully, urge you all to maintain restraint, as you have always done. Keep your eyes on the ball, which is the freedom of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Also, please note that Justice delayed is not justice denied. We are aggressively cruising to victory, it is only a matter of time.
“We profoundly appreciate your solidarity, unflinching support and prayers, which have been sustaining us thus far. Please do not relent in your prayers, we do not take it for granted.”
