The DSS requested to discontinue Kanu’s trial today, November 23, 2015, at a Senior Magistrates’ Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, Vanguard reports.
According to prosecution counsel, Moses Idakwo, the DSS had found some facts which showed that the accused had been involved in terrorism and had also been financing terrorism hence the matter was no longer under the jurisdiction of the court.
“The complainant is, therefore, applying to discontinue the matter under section 108(1) of administration of criminal justice act 2015.” Idakwo said.
Kanu is currently standing trial on a three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, intimidation and belonging to an unlawful society.
The case has been adjourned to December 1 for ruling.
