The apex court also upturned the judgment of an Appeal Court sitting in Abuja that discharged and acquitted Kanu of all terrorism charges.

In its judgment, the Supreme Court ordered a transfer of Kanu’s case back to the Federal High Court in Abuja to continue his trial.

The court, however, faulted the Nigerian Government over the extraordinary rendition Kanu was subjected to from Kenya in June 2021.

Following the delay, there has been pressure from Kanu’s lawyers and IPOB for the release of the Certified True Copy and transfer of the case file to the subordinate court.
