Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has slated for Hearing, all Appeals on Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case before the Apex Court on Thursday, October 5, 2023.

Sir ifeanyi Ejiofor, Esq. (KSC)
IPOB’S Lead Counsel said this in a statement signed on Saturday.

Recall that on October 13, 2022, the Court of Appeal, Abuja Judicial Division, delivered a landmark judgment in an appeal filed by Prof Mike Ozekhome SAN on behalf of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Ozekhome challenged part of the Federal High Court ruling, which had retained 7 counts out of the original 15 counts against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, after striking out eight out of the 15 count charge.

The learned Justices of the Court of Appeal, in allowing the appeal filed by the erudite Lead Counsel-Prof. Mike Ozekhome SAN, directed the Federal Government of Nigeria to immediately release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally.

The intermediate Court in the Landmark decision, proceeded in the aforesaid judgement to prohibit the Federal Government of Nigeria from further detaining Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, or prosecuting him on any indictment or charge before any Court in Nigeria.

On October 5, 2023, Prof. Mike Ozekhome SAN, leading Sir Ifeanyi Ejiofor Esq., and others, will be exchanging the legal fireworks on behalf of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in urging the Supreme Court to dismiss in its entirety the frivolous appeal filed by the Federal Government of Nigeria against this landmark judgement of the Court of Appeal.

Ozekhome would also ask the Court to further set aside the ruling of the Court of Appeal staying the execution of its earlier judgment.

The statement said: “We are very firm, and committed to our solemn belief that the wheels of justice,though grinds slowly, but grinds exceedingly fine and towards the attainment of justice at the end of the day.

“Justice shall prevail, by the grace of God. And the hour is here. We move.”
