Nnamdi Kanu Seeks Negotiations With FG Over Trial

Detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has expressed his intention to pursue negotiations with the Federal Government regarding his ongoing trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja. Kanu, who has been in custody since his arrest in Kenya in June 2021, is facing charges related to terrorism brought by the Federal Government.
His lead counsel, Alloy Ejimakor, presented this stance during proceedings, highlighting that they had filed applications challenging the court’s jurisdiction.
Ejimakor stated that if these applications are denied, they will move for the implementation of Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act, which allows the court to promote reconciliation and amicable settlements.
However, the government’s counsel clarified that he lacks authority to negotiate on behalf of the government, advising Kanu to approach the Attorney General instead.
