The sine die adjournment of the fresh charges brought by the federal government against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in agreement with the position of the legal team of the IPOB leader that the lower court lacks jurisdiction to entertain it, having been prevailed upon by the verdict of the Appeal Court which quashed all the charges against Kanu.
This is the reaction of one of Kanu’s lawyers, Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, after the matter was adjourned indefinitely today by Justice Binta Nyaka of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Ejiofor’s reaction was contained in his Facebook post.
He wrote, “Done and dusted! The court is in agreement with us that it lacks the jurisdiction to entertain any further charge against Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in view of the landmark judgment of the Court of Appeal.
“The matter was consequently adjourned sine die pending the outcome of the appeal at the Supreme Court.
“We are winning! Supreme Court here we come! No going back on ONYENDU’s freedom. Our appeal to set aside the order staying the execution of Onyendu’s judgment will be fixed for hearing any moment from now.
“We shall keep you all posted. ChukwuOkike Abiama is always on the throne. We move!”
