A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday has adjourned hearing in the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The court adjourned the case till Wednesday as Kanu complained that the Federal Government failed to promptly serve him the fresh 15 amended charges it brought before the court.
The IPOB leader, through is team of lawyers led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, also accused Federal Government of depriving him facility to defend the charge against him.
Ozekhome told the court that the new charges were served on them barely 24 hours before hearing day.
“My Lord, the proposed amended charges were served on us yesterday (Monday) evening. As I speak to you my lord, the defendant, who was just brought in, has not even seen the charges which he is being told to enter his plea.
“With due respect, that is not justice. It is ambushing. I know that the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, allows FG to amend, but this is the sixth amendment they are making, and each time they do it, they serve us a day to the hearing, just to frustrate the trial,” Ozekhome added.
