The ongoing judgement delivery by the three-man justices of the Appeal Court has declared the arrest and extradition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, as illegal.
In an update by Kanu’s lead counsel, Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the justices faulted the procedure of the rendition.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor posted on his Facebook page, “Onyendu MAZI 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 ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU.”
