Nnamdi Kanu to remain in detention till Sept

The Supreme Court on Thursday, postponed the hearing of the lawsuit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), till September 14.

Kanu had petitioned the court to overturn the appeals court’s decision to prevent his release from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

During Thursday’s hearings, the Supreme Court granted the plea of Abubakar Malami, the federation’s attorney-general, to file more processes in response to Kanu’s petition on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court stated that even if the appeal is heard, there is no time in its calendar to draft and deliver the judgement within the 90-day limit.
