According to Ejiofor,
"Nnamdi Kanu is a freedom fighter not a terrorist; unlike other coup plotters who take over power from the leadership in this country through violence, Kanu is a freedom fighter.
"The offence for which Nnamdi Kanu is being tried is less than the 1983 coup d'etat which led to the enthronement of President Buhari as military head of state.
"There is no ingredients of treasonable felony found in the proof of evidence before this court."
Presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, adjourned the case to February 10 to rule over a bail application filed by pro-Biafran agitator Nnamdi Kanu's legal team.
