The trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu earlier scheduled for Thursday has been moved to 28 June.

A statement from IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful confirmed the development.

According to the notice, IPOB received information from its legal counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor that the court will no longer sit Thursday.

The counsel said the Registrar of the Federal High Court, Abuja attributed the postponement to the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako being indisposed.

As a result, IPOB has canceled its sit-at-home order for Thursday and moved it to 28 June when Mazi Kanu will appear in court.

“IPOB has been informed why and what caused the sudden change of date and we accepted it.

“We just received the communication from the Federal High Court’s Registrar, through our legal counsel Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

“Therefore, there will be no sit-at-home in regard to tomorrow's case instead sit-at-home will hold on 28th June 2022.

“According to the Registrar, this is because Justice Binta Nyako is indisposed, and as such, the matter is now adjourned to the 28th day of June 2022 for ruling/hearing.

“We most respectfully, urge you all to maintain restraint, as you have always done.

“Keep your eyes on the ball, which is the freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Also, please note that Justice delayed is not justice denied.

“We are aggressively cruising to the victory of our leader, it is only a matter of time.

“There is no sit-at-home again tomorrow, Biafrans should bear with us,” the statement read.
