The Supreme Court of Nigeria had on Friday, December 15th, declined to order the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

The Supreme Court held that although the Nigerian government recklessly and unlawfully rendered Kanu from Kenya, such an unlawful act has not divested any court from proceeding with trial.

Justice Lawal said that no Nigerian law was cited in the suit seeking Kanu’s release on mere unlawful abduction from Kenya, adding that at the moment, the remedy for such action is for Kanu to file a civil matter against such act instead of removing the powers of courts to continue with his trial for alleged criminal charges

However, in a new development, fighters of Nnamdi Kanu’s Eastern Security Network who held a parade in an unknown forest, demanded that Nnamdi Kanu be released without delay.
