There was a mild drama at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday as a team of lawyers, numbering about fifteen and working for the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu withdrew from the ongoing case.
This was disclosed by the spokesperson of Kanu’s legal team, Vincent Obetta at the premises of the court shortly after Justice John Tsoho refused the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra bail.
Speaking on the withdrawal, Obetta said, “Following the letter written by the appellant, the team led by Nnoruka Udechukwu, SAN, and Joe Adi, SAN, are no longer part of the team representing Kanu.”
Kanu had addressed a personal handwritten letter to Justice Tsoho, saying he has only two lawyers- Chuks Mouma and Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Kanu in the letter to the court alleged that one of the counsels on the defence team, M. U. Udechukwu who argued for his bail in the last hearing was not his counsel of choice.
Udechekwu, in his response to the letter disclosed his intention to “stand down” while urging the court to remove his name from the team of the defence counsel.
Kanu’s lawyer, Mouma, however urged Tsoho to proceed with ruling on the bail application not minding the fact that Udechukwu who argued for the application had withdrawn from the matter.
Justice Tsoho in his ruling denied Kanu bail and ordered that he should be sent back to Kuje Prison.
