Nnnamdi Kanu's ECOWAS Court Update: A Comprehensive Report From Family Writers

Nnnamdi Kanu's ECOWAS Court Update: A Comprehensive  Report From Family Writers

Today, Biafrans from different works of life and cities came out en-mass and assembled at the ECOWAS Regional Court of Justice at Wuse in Abuja, Nigeria, at the early hours of 18th May, 2017 in solidarity with the leader of IPOB worldwide- Citizen Nnamdi Kanu  to witness the court proceeding.

However, confusion ensued as it seemed  no proper channel of communication between the ECOWAS court and the lead legal counsel to Citizen Nnamdi Kanu. While a good number of Biafrans were outside the ECOWAS Court premises waiting for the case between the defendant- citizen Nnamdi Kanu and the plaintiff- the Federal Government of Nigerian to commence; the court clerk  arrived.

A Family Writers correspondent stated: "the clerk approached us and demanded to know what and why we were at the premises. We told him that the case between Citizen Nnamdi Kanu and the Nigerian government was scheduled for ruling today, even as the Biafra flags were seen flying  everywhere at the court premises.

Surprisingly, the clerk told us that we don't have any case today and that they were notified about our leader's case two days ago being 16th of May, but none of our counsels showed up when the case was called for hearing.

We insisted. Probably, the clerk was not properly informed that the case was shifted to hold today, 18th of May 2017. When the controversy became endless between Biafrans and the court clerk, he decided to put a call across to Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor the lead counsel. Our lawyer confirmed that our case holds for ruling today and never held two days ago.

The 'drama' continued and Barr.Ejiofor made it categorically clear to the clerk that he was informed of the case this morning. He could not control his rage, he told the clerk to hang on, and as he arrived immediately he calmed the situation. Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor went inside the court to ascertain what went wrong, came out disappointed. While briefing us, he said that there was a misunderstanding on the date as a result of typographical error on the document he was served with. The real date was supposed to be 16th May, 2017 and not 18th May, 2017 and as a result of that mistake the court proceeding has been stalled once again. He  told us not to be deterred but to always remain resolute and committed because this case must be drawn to it's  logical conclusion. justice must prevail at last no matter how long it takes".

The case was adjourned again to a new date which is 10th OCTOBER, 2017.
