BREAKING: Appeal Court halts execution of judgment releasing Kanu, quashing terrorism charges
The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Friday stopped the execution of its own judgement which faulted the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria and also set aside the terrorism charges against him.
Justice Haruna Tsanami in a ruling upheld the Federal Government’s application and ordered that the execution of the judgment be put on hold.
The Federal Government had applied that the execution of the judgment be suspended pending the resolution of its appeal lodged at the Supreme Court.
Justice Tsanami in the brief ruling held that the counter affidavit filed against the Federal Government application by Kanu’s legal team was misleading.
