The legal team of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, led by Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, has filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

The appeal, filed in response to a ruling delivered on June 19, 2024, addresses concerns outlined in Paragraph 2 of the court's decision.

Ejimakor, while expressing deep dissatisfaction with the ruling issued by Justice Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, posted the information on his X account on Tuesday evening, saying, “Today, we headed to the Court of Appeal to challenge the 19th June 2024 ruling of Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako, refusing our objections to her jurisdiction to subject Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to trial. We’re not joking.”

The appeal document, referenced as Charge No. FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, states as follows: "Appellant being dissatisfied with the Ruling of the Federal High Court, Abuja Division coram: B.F.M. Nyako, J. delivered on the 19th June, 2024, more particularly set out in Paragraph 2, doth hereby appeal to the Court of Appeal, Abuja upon the grounds set out in Paragraph 3 below and will at the hearing of the Appeal seek the Reliefs set out in Paragraph 4 of this Notice of Appeal.


“AND TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the names and addresses of persons directly affected by this appeal are those set out in Paragraph 5." 

It was earlier reported that Ejimakor had clarified that it was the Federal High Court in Abuja that directed the Nigerian government and the IPOB leader to pursue reconciliation.


Ejimakor said the court gave the directive last Wednesday when Kanu’s case came up.


The lawyer said some media reports that Kanu sought negotiation with the Nigerian government on the charges levelled against him were slanted.


According to him, it was the court that invoked its powers under Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act and issued the directive.

Kanu had filed an application before the court seeking to move form 49, and a second application which objected to the court's jurisdiction to try him.


Kanu is facing trial on terrorism charges levelled against him by former President Muhammadu Buhari;s administration over his call and agitation for a sovereign state of Biafra.

The case has continued under President Bola Tinubu’s administration.


The case was adjourned to September 24 for further hearing.
