Appeal Court reserves judgment in Nnamdi Kanu’s suit challenging charges against him
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has appealed the Federal Government's decision to charge him with terrorism and treason, and the Court of Appeal Abuja has reserved judgement.

The IPOB leader sought the court of appeal to inquire about the legitimacy of the accusation that was brought against him. He is currently on trial before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He is asking the court to reconsider the trial court's April 8 decision, which only dismissed eight of the 15-count accusation.

Insisting that the charge FG entered against him had no basis in law, he is also urging the appellate court to order his release on bail, pending the determination of his appeal.

Though the appeal was initially fixed for October 11, following an application the embattled IPOB leader filed for abridgment of time, the appellate court brought the matter forward for hearing.
