FG absence stalls Nnamdi Kanu's case at ECOWAS court

– The Nigerian government and its legal representatives were absent at the Economic Community of West African States Court of Justice today for Nnamdi Kanu’s case

– The federal government said the director appointed to represent it in the case had another matter at the Federal High Court in Kaduna


The federal government’s absence at the Economic Community of West African States Court of Justice today, October 5, stalled a case filed by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu.

Following his detention in Kuje prison and Nigerian government disobedience of court order, Kanu had asked the regional court to give an order mandating that his detention is unlawful.

He also asked the ECOWAS court to make an order mandating the Nigerian government to release him unconditionally.

However, hearing on the matter which was slated today was stalled following absence of counsels for the defendants.

At the call of the case, the counsel representing Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor told the court that the Nigerian government had submitted an application to be absent for the matter.
