The appeal filed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), against the Federal Government, will be heard by the Appeal Court on Tuesday of the following week.
The remaining seven counts of charges brought against Kanu by the Nigerian government are being contested.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, on April 8, Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court dismissed eight of the fifteen counts of treasonable felonies Kanu had been charged with.
Kanu went to the Appeal Court to contest the remaining charges after the decision.
The appeal hearing, however, was previously scheduled for October 11, 2022 by the court.
However, the court reversed its decision and set the appeal hearing for next Tuesday.
The new date was disclosed by Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
A statement by Ejiofor reads: “Our Appeal No: CA/ABJ/CR/ 625/2022; between Nnamdi Kanu vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria, earlier scheduled for Hearing on the 11th Day of October, 2022, has been brought forward to the 13th day of September, 2022.
“Your relentless prayers and supplications are positively impacting.
“It, therefore, means that hearing on Onyendu’s Appeal challenging the remaining Seven count Charge filed against him, will now be coming up for Hearing at the Court of Appeal Abuja, next Tuesday, being the 13th Day of September, 2022.”
In order to prove his agitation for the actualization of Biafra, Kanu is being tried before Justice Nyako.
The IPOB leader has been imprisoned ever since he was detained in Kenya last year and returned to Nigeria.
