On Monday, October 24, the Supreme Court will hear the Federal Government’s case over IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.
The ruling by the Appeal Court that freed Nnamdi Kanu is being challenged by the government in the supreme court.
According to Daily Report, the Appellate Court dropped the charges against Kanu for flagrantly breaking all known laws when it extradited him from Kenya to the country to continue his trial in a unanimous decision by the three-judge panel.
The appeal court held:
“The court will never shy away from calling the Executive to order when it edges towards Executive recklessness.”
However, the Federal Government has gone to the nation’s apex court asking it to stay the execution of the judgement the appellate court delivered on October 13.
The government argues that the appeal court panel failed in law and occasioned a miscarriage of justice due to the manner Kanu was renditioned from Kenya to Nigeria after he jumped bail the trial court granted to him in 2017, to quash the entire charge against him.
