News Release: IPOB Leader's Lawyer Says Legal Team Will Challenge Appeal Court Recent Unfavorable Ruling


IPOB leader(middle) in court with legal team

"Be informed that we will challenge today’s Ruling of the Court of Appeal staying the execution of its judgement after conferring with the Lead Counsel Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN.

Without any prejudice to the integrity of the Learned Justices that delivered this Ruling, the fact that Hearing Notice on such a crucial/sensitive Ruling was served on us barely 45 minutes before the time slated for the Ruling, is pregnant with meaning.

Since the appeal is now to be heard expeditiously, be assured that we will move with speed as always, in adopting the most appropriate legal strategy to ensure immediate review of the decision by the Supreme Court, and the release of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

I urge you all to remain calm and be rest assured that the Ruling of the Court of Appeal today, did not interfere in any way with the status of its judgement discharging Onyendu.

The judgement of the Court of Appeal discharging Onyendu and striking out the seven-count charge still subsists, it has not been set aside."
