Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyers Confirm IPOB Leader Will Be In Court Thursday Fueling Speculation Of Possible Release

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has fixed Thursday to hear a case involving the leader of the Indigenuous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The court had on November 10 adjourned Kanu’s terrorism trial to January 19, 2022.

But there have been calls particularly from the South East, urging the President Muhammadu Buhari to release Kanu from the custody of the Department of State services.

A counsel to Kanu, Maxwell Opara confirmed to THE WHISTLER that his client will be in Court on Thursday instead of January 19.

“Yes yes. we are going on with the hearing tomorrow,” he told our correspondent in a phone chat.

Nnamdi kanu’s main counsel Ifeanyi Ejiofor also confirmed to our correspondent via text message, stating “yes”.

On his part, Buhari had told Igbo leaders that he would consider their request.

It is not clear what the court will preside over on Thursday but on the last sitting, Kanu’s lawyer was scheduled to challenge the competency of the seven count terrorism charge instituted against his client.
