Kanu Engages New Lawyers In Terrorism Charges

todayFebruary 26, 2024 8

Background
share close

The Federal Government has engaged the services of a legal luminary, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo to lead its legal team in the prosecution of treasonable felony charges it brought again Nnamdi Kanu.

Awomolo is taking over from David Kaswe a senior lawyer from the Federal Ministry of Justice in Abuja who has been handling the case for the federal government.

In the same vein, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu charged with terrorism offences by the Federal Government has engaged new lawyers for his defense.

Kanu’s trial is expected to resume at the Federal High Court in Abuja today.

It was gathered that a new team of lawyers to be led by PAM Ejiofor and Alloy Ejimakor will take over Kanu’s defense in the 7-count charges.

No reason has been adduced for the change in the legal team being led before now by Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN and Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

Meanwhile, the court is already full with lawyers, traditional rrulers, clergymen, family members and sympathizers of the Biafra agitator present.

Kanu has already been brought to the court room by operatives of the Department of State Service, DSS.
