The leader of the proscribed indigenous people of Biafra who was released for terrorism and treasonable felony was tried in court on the 16th of February, 2022.
During the court proceedings, the defense counsel brought to the notice of the judge, the deteriorating state of Nnamdi Kanu’s eye. Referring to the confiscation of his client’s eyeglass since 2015 by the federal government when he was first deported from Kenya. He requests the court to look into the matter before his client goes blind and the government should make provision for his eyeglass.
At the last seating of his trial, the court ordered DSS to allow the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu to change his clothing. For some months now, since his arrest, the young man has been on one white clothing made by GUCCI Company. After much deliberation, the court gave a grant for him to change but during yesterday’s seating, DSS gave reasons why they won’t allow Nnamdi Kanu to change his clothing.
They said that the apprehended man will wear Igbo clothe thereby instigating the public and causing more awareness on the sole aim of his arrest. That such permission won’t be granted. This statement was left in attack at the time of its declaration.
Towards the end of the proceedings, the presiding judge gave a conclusion of Nnamdi Kanu’s case being ruled on the 8th of April, 2022. And that will be the date for another hearing and probably, conclusion.
From our observation, the federal government is yet to prove the case beyond every reasonable doubt that Nnamdi Kanu is guilty of all the charges leveled against him.
There was no review made on the order made by Abia State Federal Court on the federal government paying Nnamdi Kanu handsomely for his property damage which was initiated by the FG at the time when they needed to arrest him.
