According to Premium Times, a court official disclosed the adjournment date this morning after the scheduled court sitting failed to commence for undisclosed reasons.

Kanu is being tried alongside three others: David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe.

He was arrested in 2015 on an 11-count charge bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony.

He was granted bail in April by Justice Binta Nyako on health grounds.
