COURT ORDERS KANU’S TRANSFER TO KUJE CORRECTIONAL CENTER, CASE ADJOURNED TILL JANUARY,2022
Abuja: Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday has ordered that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), who has been detained in a DSS facility since June, 2021 be transferred to Kuje Correctional Center, Abuja.
Although, Kanu was absent in court, the case was adjourned to be from January 18 to 19 next year. The shift in the trial date was based on the abridgment of time granted by the judge following a passionate plea to that effect.
Meanwhile, following the recent visit of Igbo elders led by Zikist Nonagenarian, Pa Mbazulike Amechi to President Muhammadu Buhari to request Kanu’s release, hope of his release through a political solution seems rekindled.
