Kanu’s counsel, Chuks Muoma (SAN) applied for stay of proceedings pending the hearing and determination of the appeal filed by them challenging the ruling of the court delivered on March 7 granting the request of the Federal Government to shield witnesses.

Justice James Tsoho has therefore adjourned ruling on the stay of proceedings to April 26th

A Federal High Court in Abuja had on March 7 granted the application by the government to shield its witnesses in the trial of the self-proclaimed leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mr Nnamdi Kanu and two others standing trial for alleged treason.

According to the prosecutor, the witnesses claimed they had been threatened by associates of the accused persons should they testify in the court, stressing that they would only testify if they were assured of their personal safety.12932766_1122333437787592_3423644100848274334_n 12924551_1122333497787586_5833873800557639085_n 11694919_1122333537787582_5381658084038008061_n 12512745_1122333594454243_4826031684273216406_n 12592604_1122334214454181_6343320576401112033_n 11202609_1122333811120888_5814684341476065511_n 12920517_1122333977787538_3952011397406299062_n 12524432_1122334044454198_4831770495760486594_n 11140053_1122334101120859_6724381277454447379_n
