Nigerian Court of Appeal has discharged and acquaint Nnamdi Kanu, of terrorism.

Mr. Kanu approached the Court of Appeal after a Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Bint Niak ordered him to answer to seven of the terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The court delivered its judgment on Thursday and also condemned the abduction and extraordinary rendition of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

How the IPOB leader was brought back to Nigeria from Kenya must be taken into account, said the 3-man panel of Justices led by Justice Hanatu Sankey, after the prosecution failed to explain to the court  how Mr. Kanu was brought into Nigeria.

The separatist leader was kidnapped in Kenya and unlawfully extradited to Nigeria in 2021.

UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention had called for his unconditional release, saying he has committed no crime and that the Nigerian government violated international law.
