The university of Nigeria Nsukka has declared tomorrow (21th October) lecture free day as a result of the trial of the indigenous People of Biafra leader, Nnamdi kanu which was scheduled to hold the same date.
This information was relayed on the notice board of the higher institution earlier today(October 20th).The lecture free day declaration order by the University was further confirmed through one of the executives of students union government (SUG) who pleaded anonymous.
However, It will be recalled that this was not the first time the trial date of the IPOB leader is being scheduled.
Mr Kanu, who fled Nigeria in 2017, was re-arrested and returned to Nigeria in June under tumultuous circumstances.
On June 29, he appeared in court, where the trial judge, Binta Nyako, ruled that he be remanded in the custody of the State Security Service (SSS) and that the matter be adjourned until July 26.
The hearing was resumed on July 26 at 11:10 a.m. when the judge arrived. Mr Kanu was conspicuously absent, owing to the SSS's failure to appear in court. SSS's inability to present Mr Kanu in court was described by the prosecution as a result of "logistical" concerns,However, the defendant's lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, refuted the claim, stating that the defendant had been transported out of Abuja.
Mrs Nyako then postponed the trial until October 21.
