FG Vs Nnamdi Kanu: Why There’ll Be Challenges In Court – Lawyer
The counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor, has hinted what would happen if his clients trial resumes on Monday.
Ejimakor in his statement said there would be lots of legal challenges if Kanu is subjected to any trial.
According to the IPOB leader’s lawyer, Kanu’s trial can’t be held due to his extraordinary rendition.
Ejimakor said what is expected on Monday is Kanu “taking a plea” or a re-arraignment.
He advised President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, not to be jittery.
According to Ejimakor: “Subjecting Kanu to any trial under the circumstances of his extraordinary rendition will face lots of legal challenges. So, what is expected on Monday is not a trial but what Lawyers call ‘taking a plea’ or a re-arraignment on the amended Charges that might be brought.
“Should that happen, the procedure permits taking an adjournment to study the new Charges to advise the defendant on the next steps.
“So, there’s nothing significant that will happen on Monday that warrants anybody, including the government, to be jittery.”
