The Supreme Court earlier today adjourned the hearing of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) trial to May 11, 2023.


This information was disclosed by Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, in a tweet on his Twitter handle: “Sadly, the Supreme Court has adjourned the #MNK appeal hearing to next month.”

It was earlier reported that the apex Court heard Kanu’s appeal filed over his continuous detention at the Department of State Services, DSS, facility in Abuja.


The appeal, which was filed on November 3, 2022, was against the decision of the Court of Appeal which, on October 28 2022, stayed the execution of its earlier order acquitting him of all charges and directing his release from the custody of the secret police.

Prior to the hearing, Kanu’s Special Counsel had urged the Supreme Court to ensure justice in the trial of the IPOB leader, stressing that his matter should end today.


The Supreme Court has also granted leave to the Federal Government to bring nine new grounds of appeal against the release of pro-Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.


A five-member panel led by Justice John Okoro granted the leave on Thursday while ruling on the motion by the Counsel to the Federal Government, Tijani Gadzali.

The apex court also granted leave to the Federal Government to include these nine new grounds as part of its amended notice of appeal dated 28th October 2022.


At the resumed hearing, Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, Mike Ozekhome, informed the court of his motions seeking for bail of his client and another seeking for his transfer to the Kuje Correctional Facility to get proper medical attention citing his failing health at the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
