Nnamdi Kanu’s case stalls over death of magistrate’s father

The hearing of the case involving the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was on Tuesday stalled due to the death of the magistrate’s father.

The court registrar, Salisu Yunusa said the magistrate’s father died on Thursday, November 26, adding that no date has been fixed for the hearing and ruling on the case.

On the protests regarding why the court could not sit over the case, Yunusa said, “Of course, the protesters complaining are not part of the case, besides, are the counsels complaining?”

“Did any of the counsels complain to you,” Yunusa asked.

We recalls that the Director of Radio Biafra was on October 18, arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, upon his arrival into Nigeria from the United Kingdom.

Though Kanu had being granted bail by a Wuse 2 Magistrate Court, he is still in the custody of the DSS.

Dim Udebuani, one of the counsels to Kanu in his reaction commiserated with the bereaved magistrate on the death of his father, but described the continued incarceration of Kanu by the DSS as demonic.

“It is a matter that speaks for itself; we have just being told that your lordship, Honourable Shuaibu Usman lost his father,” Udebuani said.
