Appeal Court Discharges Nnamdi Kanu says Federal high court lacks jurisdiction to try him

Biafra: Why Nnamdi Kanu cannot be released – Nigerian govt reveals

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has been released by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

On Thursday, a three-judge appellate panel ruled that the Federal High Court lacked jurisdiction to try Mr. Kanu because his rendition to Nigeria violated the extradition protocol and the OAU convention.

The court held that the Federal Government failed to disclose the exact location Mr. Kanu was arrested; neither did the 15-count charge against him disclose the place, date, time, and nature of the alleged offenses before extraditing him.

Consequently, the appellate court discharged Kanu of the charges proffered against him by the federal government
