The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria has discharged and acquitted the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

‘Nnamdi Kanu’s abduction and extraordinary rendition from Kenya is declared illegal and consequently constitutes a bar to further proceeding /trial.
Court Held that It was done in clear and egregious violation of extant international laws, there is no justification whatsoever even the warrant of arrest issued in NIGERIA cannot justify the illegality in the abduction and extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’


Kanu is being prosecuted by the Federal Government at the Federal High Court in Abuja for 15 count charges bordering, including treasonable felony and terrorism, offences he allegedly committed in the course of his separatist campaigns.

The court held that the 15-count charge preferred against Kanu did not disclose the place, date, time and nature of the alleged offences before being unlawfully extradited to Nigeria in clear violation of international treaties.

The court further held that Federal Government failed to disclose where Nnamdi Kanu was arrested despite the grave allegations against him
