The ECOWAS County Court Judgment (CCJ) has adjourned the case involving the leader of Indigenious People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and the Federal Government.
At the resumption of the case which was earlier adjourned on Tuesday morning, counsel for the Federal Government told the court that their lead counsel would not be able to attend as he has an urgent meeting with the Vice President and asked for a short adjournment. They also requested a copy of the ruling from the last hearing.
Kanu’s lawyer, however, objected to an adjournment and argued there was no reason for the case not to proceed.
He said that the government was stalling the case and asked that any adjournment be with terms and requested N2 million naira. He also stated that he did not believe the lead counsel was delayed at the Supreme Court earlier
The court adjourned the case till November 21, stating it would be the last adjournment in the case and they will also give their decision on the application for N2 million on November 21, 2017.
