Nnamdi Kanu: FG Asks Appellate Court To Grant Stay Of Execution

In response to the Appeal Court’s decision to discharge Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, the Federal Government asked the Court of Appeal in Abuja to grant a stay of execution on Monday.
The federal government asks for a stay of execution on the Appeal Court’s October 13 ruling that freed Kanu and overturned his rendition from Kenya to Nigeria due to a violation of local and international laws.
According to Akahi News, a three-man panel of the court will decide the FG’s motion on notice in a notice of appeal marked CA/ABJ/CR/625/2025 that was seen by reporters.
Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Kanu’s attorney, and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a senior lawyer, are present in court.
Additionally, it was reported that armed police officers were observed at the court’s entrance, screening incoming vehicles and their occupants to prevent security breaches.
In the meantime, Akahi News reported this morning that the leadership of the Appeal Court has transferred three justices who served on the panel that dismissed Kanu’s 15-count terrorism charge brought by the Federal Government.
Jummai Hanatu Sankey, Oludotun Adetope-Okojie, and Ebiowei Tobi, three justices, were said to have criticized the Muhammadu Buhari administration for “abducting” the IPOB from Kenya.
Justice Oludotun Adebola ruled on October 13 that the Federal Government violated all local and international laws when it forced Kanu to Nigeria, rendering the terrorism charges against him incompetent and illegal.
The Federal Government’s charges against Kanu were overturned by the justices.
Kanu was released from the alleged offenses by the Appellate Court.
According to Justice Adebola’s decision, the charges against Kanu were lost when Nigeria failed to comply with the legal requirements for extradition.
They also ruled that the terrorism charges were invalid and liable for dismissal because the federal government failed to disclose the location and time of the alleged crimes.
