05 April 2016, 13:40

Abuja - The Radio Biafra director and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Tuesday made moves to stall the continuation of his trial before a federal high court in Abuja.

Kanu through his counsel, Chuks Muoma in an application prayed the court to stay further proceedings on his trial until the Appeal Court takes a decision on a ruling by the court for the Department of State Services (DSS) to protect its witness.

However, the prosecution told the court that the DSS has filed a 5-paragraph counter affidavit from the office of the director public prosecution.

The DSS counsel, S. N Labaran said a 4-paragraph written address was also filed to adopt all the process filed in opposition on the motion on notice by the defendant.

He prayed the court to discontence the application and rather move for a speedy trial stating that the DSS is not opposing the right of appeal by the defendants.

The court in its ruling had asked that the witnesses be shielded from the audience and that their names and addresses protected from the public.
