Abuja - A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday struck out an application by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and his co-accused, David Nwawusi and Benjamin Madubugwu, asking for a stay of proceedings in their ongoing trial.
Justice James Tsoho ruled that the application for a stay of proceedings lacked merit and ordered that the trial should proceed in the mode earlier directed by the court.
In his ruling on Tuesday, Justice Tsoho, said he would not yield to any blackmail in the handling of the case.
