However, speaking to Biafra Writers’ Correspondents,
Barrister Ejiofor said they had approached the appellate court because they believe their client should not be tried in camera(secret) but whether the Appeal court will agree to this remains to be seen.
“You have seen what happened in court today, this is where trouble began because before now, we have been romancing with them but now we have taken the bull by the horn because we will never accept Nnamdi Kanu to be tried in secret,” Ejiofor said.
He went further to say, “We filed an application of preliminary objection in court challenging the decision of the court to hear the charges because the charge is patently competent and effective on the ground that the poor evidence attached to the charge cannot sustain it and it didn’t disclose one of the filed cases against our client as such the matter cannot be brought up for a trial.
“You know at the point where the bail application was argued and heard, the court did not have the opportunityto to look into the poor evidence and permitted to look at the reasons why it should be struck out. So this time around, we are inviting the court to look into the poor evidence attached to the charge which is the statements made by the Prosecutor including those made by the masked witnesses should be terminated by the court as those allegations could not be sustained at the point of law.
