Supreme Court Releases Certified True Copy of Judgment on Nnamdi Kanu’s Case

by ONUAH YVONNE

The Certified True Copy (CTC) of the December judgment on Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been officially released by the Supreme Court. According to Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, the apex court has assured that the IPOB leader’s case file will be forwarded to the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday.

Ejimakor confirmed the development through a post on his social media handle, stating, “Today, the Supreme Court released the CTC of its judgment in ‘Federal Republic of Nigeria versus Nnamdi Kanu’. The Court also promised to transmit the case file to the Federal High Court by tomorrow. Sooner than later, we shall lock horns at the Federal High Court to #FreeMNK.”

In December 2023, the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal to release Kanu and overturned the ruling of the Appeal Court in Abuja, which had previously acquitted Kanu of all terrorism charges. The Supreme Court directed that Kanu’s case be transferred back to the Federal High Court in Abuja for further trial.

The Supreme Court, in its verdict, criticized the Nigerian Government for the extraordinary rendition of Kanu from Kenya in June 2021. Due to the delay, Kanu’s legal team and IPOB have been exerting pressure for the release of the Certified True Copy and the transfer of the case file to the lower court.
