Nnamdi Kalu’s Lawyer Cries Out Over Delay Of Trial

 Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, the special counsel to the incarcerated leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Bi­afra, (IPOB), has cried out that the right of his client is being trampled upon.

In a statement made available to SUNDAY IN­DEPENDENT at the week­end, Ejimakor lamented that the IPOB leader’s case was being unnecessarily delayed in court.

He expressed disap­pointment that Kanu’s fundamental rights case did not hold as scheduled in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

Ejimakor stated: “You will recall that at the last hearing of this matter on September 21, 2021, the vacation judge had made a ruling transferring the case to the Chief Judge of Abia State High Court for as­signment.

“The reason was that the Abia court vacation was due to end on Septem­ber 30, and according to the judge, there was not enough time for the vaca­tion court to conclude the case within the vacation period.

“The case was there­fore adjourned to October 7, 2021 for assignment to a judge that will hear it under the regular court calendar.

“As of today, the case is yet to be assigned and I was informed by the regis­try that all parties will be notified of the next hear­ing date once the case is assigned to a court.

“A fundamental rights proceeding is sui gener­is. In other words, it is to be treated as special and expected to be concluded quickly, especially in situ­ations where the applicant is incarcerated.”
