Mr Kanu, through his lead counsels Mike Ozekhome, (SAN) wants the Appeal Court to dismiss charges filed by the Federal Government against him and granted by the Federal High Court, Abuja.
The lower court had struck out some charges and said that counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 15 showed some allegations, which Kanu had to answer.
But Kanu approached the appellate court, seeking the “quashing, striking out and dismissing of the 15-count amended charge” for being “incompetent and denying the court of jurisdiction to entertain the suit.”
