The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday refused to grant the request of the Federal Government for adjournment in an application seeking to stay the execution of the judgment that set free the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The court, which has resumed its noon session on the matter, asked the FG to move its application or forget it.
The Federal government lawyer, Mr David Kaswe, complained that he was served with a counter affidavit by Kanu’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN, on Friday.
According to PUNCH news at the appellate court today, the FG is asking the court to stay the execution of the judgment of October 13 which voided the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria on account of breach of local and international laws.
A three-panel of the court would determine the FG’s motion on notice, according to a notice of appeal marked CA/ABJ/CR/625/2025, sighted by newsmen.
Kanu’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, (SAN), leading the legal team, is in the court, alongside a senior lawyer, Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
