Nnamdi Kanu: ECOWAS court adjourns hearing into rights suit


The hearing into the fundamental rights suit of the leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has been adjourned by ECOWAS court.

The suit which was filed in March 2016 has again been adjourned until May 30 for hearing; the suit had not reached the hearing stage as it was filed at the court.

It was adjourned in November 2017, after a previous postponement a month before, following applications by parties in the matter.

The court presided over by Justice Hemeye Mahdmadane in Abuja announced its decision to make further adjournment after entertaining a fresh application by the prosecution.

Mahdmadane said the court’s decision to adjourn sitting was based on the motions brought before the court in November which is yet to be translated into English language.

However, while reacting to a recent application, Mr. Ejiofor accused the prosecution of making unnecessary motions aimed at preventing the case from succeeding.

Meanwhile, the court has warned Ejiofor to desist from making such utterances in court.
