Federal government of Nigeria has said that it will soon make decision on the Judgment made on the detained Nnnamdi Kanu by a three-member panel of the appellate court, led by Hanatu Sankey, that discharged Kanu of Terrorism crime and set him free.
Speaking to the media after the Council State meeting, Mohammed Maigari Dingyadi, Minister of Police Affairs said: “The issue of Kanu was raised and Council was briefed on the state of things on the matter and it was observed that Kanu was discharged, but he was not acquitted. So, the government is considering the appropriate action to be taken on the matter and Nigerians will be notified of the position that will finally be taken in due course.”
The “Nigeria’s Court of Appeal on Thursday dropped terrorism charges against separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu that had been brought by the government, in a unanimous decision by all three judges hearing the case. The lead judge dismissed a seven count charge of terrorism against Kanu and discharged him, citing that a lower court had no jurisdiction to try the case and that Kanu was abducted and extraordinarily extradited to Nigeria.”
