A suit filed by the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, against the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court on the secret trial of terrorism charges policy of the court has been struck out. DailyPost reported that the suit, which has the Chief Judge, Justice John Tsoho, as sole defendant, was thrown out following its dramatic withdrawal by the Biafra nation agitator.
 
Kanu had dragged the Chief Judge before the court following the adoption of a Practice Direction that directed the trial of terrorism-related charges to be done in camera His grouse was that the secret trial policy effected shortly after the Federal Government slammed 15-count treasonable felony charges against him constituted an infringement to his fundamental rights to a fair trial.
 
At Friday’s proceedings, when the hearing was to commence, Kanu, through his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, announced that he was no longer interested in continuing with the suit. Ejiofor subsequently applied that the matter is struck out in line with the wish of Kanu. Speaking with newsmen on the issue, the counsel explained that the action was withdrawn following the discovery that the secret trial of terrorism charges policy adopted during the trial of Kanu was not targeted at his client.
 
Details later.
