The court premise was already crowded with sympathizers of the director of Radio Biafra who were later informed by one of his counsel that the court would not sit.
The court registrar, Salisu Yunusa told that the magistrate’s father died on Thursday, November 26.
He said no date has been fixed for the continued hearing and ruling on the case.
Also asked if information was appropriately disseminated, Yunusa said: “Of course, the protesters complaining are not part of the case, besides, are the counsels complaining?”
“Did any of the counsels complain to you,” Yunusa asked.
However, in disappointment, majority of the protesters were seen leaving the court premises.
Kanu was arrested by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) on Sunday, October 18, on his arrival into Nigeria from the United Kingdom.
Although the court has granted him bail Kanu still remains in the custody of the SSS.
