Lamenting the adjournment and lock out in a twit shortly after the matter was adjourned till January 19, 2022, Kanu’s Special Counsel, Barr Aloy Ejimakor, said  “we (the legal team) will surely take urgent and decisive measures over the development,” noting, “I, particularly, am not happy. And the world should not be happy. How can the judge just lock out Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers and refuse us entry into the courtroom? And then arbitrarily adjourned the case to January 19,2022. This is a travesty of justice, and we will surely take urgent and decisive measures over the development,” Ejimakor bemoaned.

 Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court, Abuja, had, on Wednesday, adjourned till January 19, 2021, the trial of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who is facing a cocktail of charges bordering on state security.

Kanu, who was brought into the courtroom at about 9.50am, had shortly after his case was called up bemoaned the refusal of security agents to allow some members of his legal team, especially his lawyer from the United State of America, Bruce Fein, to enter the courtroom.

He told Justice Nyako that Fein, who was handling a case for him in the US, was around to witness his trial.

“I have an ongoing case in the US. I have not been allowed to see him. He is here to see me and to observe the proceedings, but here he is, being locked out of the courtroom, Kanu stated from the dock.

When asked by the Judge, if he was ready to conduct the proceedings himself, in the absence of his lawyers, Kanu said no./SHARE THIS
