Kanu to know fate in April in a motion seeking to dismiss terrorism charges


Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafran IPOB Nnamdi Kanu will on April 8 know his fate in his quest to get the terrorism charges against him dismissed.

Justice Binta Nyako fixed the date on Wednesday after taking arguments for and against his motion asking the court to throw away the charges.

Kanu’s motion was argued by Mike Ozekhome SAN who prayed the court to dismantle the charges.

The ground of the motion were that a prima facie was not made against Kanu and that the alleged offence was committed outside the shores of Nigeria, thereby robbing the court of jurisdiction.

The federal government’s counsel, Shuaib Labaran, however, asked the court to dismiss the motion for being unmeritorious.
