There is a new twist in the case of Nnamdi Kanu versus the Federal Government as the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Friday halted the execution of the judgement it passed on the charges against the Indegenous People of Biafra leader.
The Appeal Court had faulted the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria and also set aside the terrorism charges against him.
Justice Haruna Tsanami in a ruling upheld the Federal Government’s application and ordered that the execution of the judgment be put on hold.
The Federal Government had applied that the execution of the judgment be suspended pending the resolution of its appeal lodged at the Supreme Court.
Justice Tsanami in the brief ruling held that the counter affidavit filed against the Federal Government application by Kanu’s legal team was misleading.
