The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal on Friday ordered the stay of execution of its October 13 judgment freeing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and quashing the terrorism charge filed against him by the Federal Government.

The upper court upheld the Federal Government’s application and ordered that the execution of the judgment be put on hold pending the determination of the appeal filed against the judgment by the government.

Justice Tsanami, who read the lead ruling, ordered the FG to expedite action on the appeal it filed by ensuring prompt transmission of regards among others.

The Justice also in the ruling, held that the counter affidavit filed against the Federal Government’s application by Kanu’s legal team was misleading.
