Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, has again adjourn trial of Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to January 19 and 20, 2022.
The court adjourned the case when Kanu’s team of Lawyers staged a walk-out on the court over refusal by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), to allow some of them to gain access into the courtroom.
The IPOB Leader protested refusal by security agents to allow some members of his legal team, especially his lawyer from the United States of America, Bruce Fein, to enter the Courtroom.
Kanu told the court that Mr. Fein, who he said was handling a case for him in the US, was around to witness his trial.
He added that in the previous sitting, his foreign lawyer, Fein, was also denied access
“I have an ongoing case in the US. I have not been allowed to see him. He is here to see me and to observe the proceedings.Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Mohammed Abubakar, told Justice Binta Nyako that Kanu’s counsel, led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, staged a walkout because some of the lawyers, including the American lawyer, Bruce Fein, were denied access into the Courtroom.
Justice Nyako then adjourned the matter until Jan. 19 and Jan. 20 for trial continuation.
