Supreme Court Sets Dec 15 To Determine Nnamdi Kanu’s Fate

The Supreme Court has scheduled December 15 as the date for announcing its decision on the appeal aiming to compel the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), from detention.

A five-member panel led by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun at the apex court approved the case for judgement following the adoption of final briefs of argument by counsels for both the Federal Government and the detained IPOB leader.

The team of lawyers representing the Federal Government is headed by Mr. T. A. Gazzali, SAN, an Acting Director of Civil Appeals at the Federal Ministry of Justice.

On the other side, Mr. Kanu Agabi, SAN, a former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, led Kanu’s legal team, but it was Prof. Mike Ozehkome, SAN, who presented his appeal to the apex court panel.

Ozehkome prayed the court to not only order the immediate release of his client from detention but to equally award a “very heavy and punitive cost” against the Federal Government.
