Nnamdi Kanu's Lawyer Reveals New Plan After Appeal Ruling

Nnamdi Kanu's Lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor Reveals New Plan After Appeal Ruling
Ifeanyi Ejiofor

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead attorney for the Indigenous People of Biafra, said that the new Court of Appeal ruling suspending the execution of its previous judgement will be challenged in court.

The lawyer revealed this on Friday after the court that acquitted and discharged Kanu granted the Nigerian federal government a request for a stay of execution of the judgement pending the determination of the substantive appeal in the Supreme Court.

In a statement, Ejiofor said, “we will challenge today’s Ruling of the Court of Appeal staying the execution of its judgement  after conferring with the Lead Counsel - Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN. 

“Without any prejudice to the integrity of the Learned Justices that delivered this Ruling,  the fact that Hearing Notice on such a crucial/sensitive Ruling  was served on us barely 45 minutes before the time slated for the Ruling, is pregnant with meaning. 

“Since the appeal is now to be heard expeditiously, be assured that we will move with speed as always, in adopting the most appropriate legal strategy to ensure immediate review of the  decision by the Supreme Court, and the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
