Supreme Court Has Opened New Window For My Release – IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Assures Supporters
The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has described the Supreme Court ruling that blocked his bail as a new window for his freedom.
Kanu stated this during his routine meeting with his legal team, led by his special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, and Barrister Nnaemeka, at the Abuja facility of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Ejimakor, giving a report about Kanu’s remark, wrote via his X platform, “UPDATE: I met with #MNK today in tow with Barr Nnaemeka. Onyendu expressed his profound disappointment with the Supreme Court judgment but he believes that aspects of the judgement have opened a new legal window to pursue his release. He asked all and sundry to remain confident.”
AttNews had also reported that Nnamdi Kanu, earlier accepted the apex court’s ruling which blocked his release.
Ugamatv on Friday reported that the apex court in a judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim but written by Justice Garba Lawal nullified the judgment of the Court of Appeal that ordered Kanu’s release and asked the trial court to continue with the case.
The Supreme Court, however, held that the Nigerian government recklessly and unlawfully renditioned Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria. It, however, held that such an unlawful act would not strip any court of its power to proceed with the trial.
But reacting to the Supreme Court judgment when his legal team visited him on Tuesday, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who gave an update on Kanu’s reaction, said that the IPOB leader questioned whether the apex court effectively repealed constitutional provisions cited before it on his release.
