Nnamdi Kanu Suffering From Nosebleed In DSS Detention -- Lawyer Cries Out

The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the ongoing trial against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to September 23, 25, and 26, 2024 following the inability of the trial to commence properly.

Justice Binta Nyako made the adjournment after the defense counsels prayed the court to explore section 17 of the Federal High Court Act on following the the denial of his application to quash the remaining 7 count charge against Kanu.

Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act states that “In any proceedings in the Court, the Court may promote reconciliation among the parties thereto and encourage and facilitate the amicable settlement thereof.”

This was the submission of Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Alloy Ejimakor, before Justice Binta Nyako following the dismissal of a fresh application by Kanu challenging the jurisdiction of the court to entertain counts 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 15 for being unconstitutional.

The court held that it cannot overrule itself on issues it had already resolved, adding that the only option left for the applicant was to proceed on appeal.
