Ejimakor posted on X, stating: “UPDATE: Barr Nnaemeka and I met with #MNK today.

Although Onyendu voiced his deep dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court’s ruling, he thinks that certain of the ruling’s provisions have created a fresh legal avenue for him to seek his freedom. He urged everyone to maintain their confidence.

According to the DAILY POST, the Supreme Court denied an appeal to free the troubled IPOB leader from custody.

In a decision authored by Justice Garba Lawal and delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the Supreme Court reversed the October 2022 Appeal Court decision clearing Kanu of all terrorism-related charges.

The Nigerian government illegally and carelessly removed Kanu from Kenya, but it did not stop any court from moving on with a trial, the Supreme Court said.

According to Justice Lawal, there was no mention of any Nigerian law in the lawsuit asking for Kanu’s release from his kidnapping by force in Kenya.
