Supreme Court to Hear Appeal Over Kanu’s Detention Today


The leading counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Chief Ifeanyi Ejiofor has said the Supreme Court will today hear the appeal filed by the legal representatives of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB. 

Ejiofor tweeted:  “…The Supreme Court of Nigeria will this morning hear Appeal over the continued illegal detention of our indefatigable client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

“We are very firm in our belief that the Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama will take absolute control of today’s proceedings. His Grace will prevail in judgement over today’s outing at the Supreme Court.”

Kanu, since he was released to Nigeria in June 2021, has been held under custody of the Department of Security Service (DSS) pending his continuous court hearing.

Also, the appeal court of Nigeria sitting in Abuja on October 10, 2022 – ordered Kanu to be released, a judgement which was also appealed by the legal representatives of the Federal government with trumped up charges bordering on treason. 

Following his continued detention by the DSS, Kanu’s legal representatives led by lawyer Mike Ozekhome and Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, filed an appeal at the Supreme Court praying the apex court to throw out FG’s appeal and uphold the Appeal Court verdict.
