The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had slated today for the commencement of the hearing of the suit filed by the Nigerian government against the four defendants whose trial were separated from that of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that on the last adjourned date, November 14, 2018, the absence of the prosecution witnesses (in court) stalled hearing in the matter. In addition, the presiding Justice Binta Nyako insisted on masking the witnesses made available to profess against the defendants.
Also, before the court are pending applications aligned by the lead counsel of IPOB, ‘challenging the competence of the charge on the ground that the shreds of evidence filed in support, did not disclose a ‘prima facie’ case against the defendants.
To this end, the basis of the trial is pending on the legal applications that is or would be put forward by the defence counsels.
Therefore, we look forward to the sanctity of the judicial process to absorb and effectuate, not without justice, the proceedings of today.
