The Nigerian government, however, appealed the judgment at the Supreme Court.

The apex court, in its judgment on December 15, 2023, ordered the continuation of the trial of Kanu on terrorism charges.


Kanu has been in DSS detention since June 2021 when he was repatriated from Kenya to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, it gathered that a new team of lawyers led by Alloy Ejimakor will take over Kanu’s defense in the 7-count charges.

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

This report is developing, more details will be shared on the Intel Region WhatsApp group as soon as possible.
