The Court of Appeal in Abuja has discharged and acquitted the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, of allegations of terrorism and treasonable felony.

A three-member panel of justices led by Justice Jummai Hanatu on Thursday struck out the seven-count charges preferred against him by the federal government.

The panel held that the trial court had no jurisdiction to entertain the case following Kanu’s rendition from Kenya.

Kanu, who jumped bail and travelled out of the country, was arrested in Kenya in June 2021 and extradited to Nigeria to answer terrorism charges.
