Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has responded to the decision of the Government High Court in Abuja to suspend the further trial of its client.

Ejimakor disclosed that it was outside the realm of possibilities for Justice Binta Nyako-led court to go on with Kanu’s trial.

Justice Nyako put off Kanu’s trial sine die because of the pending resolution of the Federal Government’s appeal against the October 13 judgment of the Court of Appeal that released him from the terrorism charges.

The Federal Government’s appeal looking for a reversal of the Court of Appeal judgment is pending before the Supreme Court.

Responding, Ejimakor said the Court of Appeal judgment and that of the Federal High Court in Umuahia made it impossible for Nyako to go on with Kanu’s trial.

In a chat with INFOXCLUSIVE, the Special Counsel said the pending appeal before the Supreme Court was an obstruction to the continuation of the trial.

“My reaction to today’s Federal High Court, Abuja ruling declining further trial of Nnamdi Kanu:

“The ruling today by Justice Binta of Federal High Court Abuja was not unexpected.

“There is absolutely no way she can proceed with the trial of Nnamdi Kanu in view of the jurisdictional barriers created by the judgments of the Court of Appeal and that of the Federal High Court, Umuahia.

“To cap it all, the matter is also pending before the Supreme Court on appeal. No trial court can proceed with any trial that is burdened by these triple factors,” he said.
