From The Federal high Court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, the case has been adjourned and further proceedings in the case against the IPOB (Indigenous people of Biafra) leader, Nnamdi Kanu placed on hold till Wednesday.
… has ordered DSS to allow him change cloth and do exercise.
The adjournment was duly followed by Kanu’s complaint that the federal Government has failed to promptly serve him the fresh 15 amended charges it brought before the court.
The team of Kanu’s lawyers led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Mike Ozekhome, through Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Federal government of denying him the necessary facility to properly defend the charge against him.
Ozekhome made it known to the court that the amended charges were served on them barely 24 hours to the scheduled time of hearing.
“My Lord, the proposed amended charges were served on us yesterday (Monday) evening. As I speak to you my lord, the defendant, who was just brought in, has not even seen the charges which he is being told to enter his plea.
“With due respect, that is not justice. It is ambushing. I know that the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, allows FG to amend, but this is the sixth amendment they are making, and each time they do it, they serve us a day to the hearing, just to frustrate the trial,” Ozekhome added.
