For Nigerians anxiously waiting to know the fate of Nnamdi Kalu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is still being held by federal authorities after the Court of Appeal discharged and acquitted him, the waiting continues.
A federal High Court in Abuja has adjourened his case indefinitely. Justice Binta Nyako put off the trial sine die at the instance of Kanu. This is to allow for the resolution of the Federal Government’s appeal at the Supreme Court against the October 13 judgment of the Court of Appeal which discharged him of the terrorism charges.
The development implies that Kanu’s fate know largely depends on the decision of the Supreme Court.
Kanu has been in detention since he was brought back from Kenya on June 19, 2021.
