The Court of Appeal in Abuja yesterday stopped the execution of its own judgment which faulted the rendition of Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria and also set aside the terrorism charges against him.

Justice Haruna Tsammani in a ruling upheld the application of the Federal Government and ordered that the execution of the judgment be put on hold.

The Federal Government had applied that the execution of the judgment be suspended pending the resolution of its appeal lodged at the Supreme Court.

Justice Tsammani in the briefing ruling held that the counter affidavit filed against the Federal Government’s application by Kanu’s legal team was misleading.
