Nnamdi Kanu has filed a new lawsuit against the Chief Justice of the High Court over his secret trial strategy

Nnamdi Kanu, the self-declared leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has filed a new lawsuit against Justice John Terhamba Tsoho, the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, for using a secret trial process in the criminal charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

At the Federal High Court in Abuja, the Chief Judge and the Chief Registrar of the court were sued by the jailed Kanu, who is seeking an order from the court to annul the secret trial policy, which he claims is illegitimate, unlawful, and unconstitutional.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the lawyers in his defense team, filed the FHC/ABJ/CS/556/2022 lawsuit on his behalf.

Kanu’s opposition to a secret trial was based on the fact that the policy infringed on his fundamental rights under Section 36 of the 1999 Constitution and Section 34 of the Terrorism Prevention Act of 2011.
