Four members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), who were previously charged with Nnamdi Kanu for treasonable felony, have gotten the judgement of a Federal High Court to be paid N200,000 for delaying trial.

The four defendants who are now being tried separately are Bright Chimezie, Chidiebere Onwudike, Benjamin Maduagwu and David Nwawusi

The presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, in a ruling on Wednesday, ordered the Federal government to pay each of the defendants N50,000 for stalling proceedings in the case.

The judge’s position was informed by the complaint by the defence counsel about the absence of federal government lawyer in court and that the defendants were subjected to unnecessary hardship of raising funds to attend court from their base which is outside Abuja.

She however adjourned the case till March 17, 2022.
