The resumption of the trial of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, which was due to continue on Thursday, May 26, has been postponed to June 28 for a hearing.
IPOB Lead Advisor Ifeanyi Ejiofor made this known on Wednesday, May 25th.
Ejiofor said his team had been informed this morning by the Clerk of the Supreme Court that the Court would not adjourn tomorrow, May 26, because the presiding Judge, Justice Binta Nyako, was not competent.
Ejiofor said: “Please be informed that we have recently received contact with the Registrar of the Supreme Court of the State, informing us that the Court will not adjourn tomorrow, 26 May 2022, in the case of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“According to the Registrar, this is because His sovereignty, Justice Binta Nyako, is infinite, and as a result, the matter is now being adjourned to June 28, 2022 for Judgment.
“With all due respect, we urge all of you to exercise self-control, as you have always done. Keep your eyes on the ball, which is the freedom of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Also, please know that justice is delayed and justice is not denied. We are looking for victory, it is only a matter of time.
“Thank you very much for your unity, your unwavering support and prayers, which has been a constant support to us. Please do not give up in your prayers, we do not take it lightly.”
