ABUJA — Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra have filed an appeal against the Ruling of the Court of Appeal which granted the federal government of Nigeria an application for the stay of execution of the Judgment of the Court of Appeal that acquitted and discharged him.

In the Appeal filed by his lawyers led by Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) Kanu asked the Supreme Court to set aside the ruling of the Court of Appeal.

The apex court is also asked to bar the Nigerian government from further detaining and prosecuting the IPOB leader who was acquitted by the first Court of Appeal ruling.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer for Nnamdi Kanu who confirmed the suit on Thursday, said it was filed with the approval of the separatist leader.

“We have filed an appeal against the said Ruling of the Court of Appeal delivered on the 28th day of October, 2022, and will proactively follow up on the administrative process to ensure that both appeals are given accelerated hearing in line with the extant Fast Track Rules of the Supreme Court," said Ejiofor in a statement.

“We shall keep everyone abreast of the development in the appeals as we progress.”

He stated that “the judgment of the Court of Appeal discharging Onyendu and striking out the seven count charge still subsists, it has not been set aside.”

A date is expected to be fixed for the judgment at Supreme Court.
