A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Federal Government to pay N200,000 to four individuals earlier charged with the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The four, who are now being tried separately on a treasonable felony charge, are Bright Chimezie, Chidiebere Onwudike, Benjamin Maduagwu, and David Nwaurusi.

Justice Binta Nyako, in a ruling on Wednesday, ordered the prosecution 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 about the absence of the prosecution lawyer in court and that the defendants were subjected to unnecessary hardship of raising funds to attend court from their base outside Abuja.

At the mention of the case, no lawyer appeared for the prosecution.
