On Tuesday, 18 January, a Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed further procedures for the situation against the detained head of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, till Wednesday 19 January.

The dismissal followed Kanu’s protests that the Federal Government neglected to instantly serve him the new 15 revised charges it brought under the watchful eye of the court.

Kanu, through his group of attorneys, drove by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Mike Ozekhome, further blamed the FG for denying him the essential office to shield the charge against him.

Ozekhome let the court know that the corrected charges were served bearly 24 hours before the planned hearing.

“My Lord, the proposed amended charges were served on us yesterday (Monday) evening. As I speak to you, my lord, the defendant, who was just brought in, has not even seen the charges which he is being told to enter his plea.

“With due respect, that is not justice. It is ambushing. I know that the Administration of Criminal Justice Act allows the Federal Government to amend, but this is the sixth amendment they are making, and each time they do it, they serve us a day to the hearing, just to frustrate the trial,” Ozekhome added.

Also, Justice Binta Nyako, ordered the Department of State Services, DSS, allow Kanu to have a change in cloth.
