The Supreme Court’s decision to postpone Nnamdi Kanu’s hearing prompted a response from the IPOB leader on Thursday.
Kanu bemoaned the fact that his case was past due for consideration by the Supreme Court and should not be continued.
He revealed this to his Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, during their regular meeting at the Department of State Service (DSS) office in Abuja.
After permitting the Federal government to submit nine more grounds to its appeal against the IPOB leader, the top court postponed Kanu’s case till May 11.
Tweeting about the meeting, Ejimakor wrote: “I just exited from today’s visitation with #MNK. I informed him of the adjournment of his appeal by the Supreme Court & he was not happy about it.
“He believes (and I concur) that his case is over-ripe for hearing. He, therefore, insisted that the case must not be adjourned again.”
The Federal Government’s appeal against the Court of Appeal’s discharge and acquittal of Kanu was approved by a five-person panel chaired by Justice John Okoro of the Supreme Court.
The court approved the request when ruling on a motion for leave made by Tijani Gazali, the attorney for the Nigerian government.
