As reported by Leadership Nigeria:
Despite this great victory the battle against undue censorship is not over and Iyan-Tama continues to require our help and support as he faces the upcoming retrial.
The appeal filed by the accused suffered many set- backs before it was finally mentioned on the 6th of this month. At the mention of the appeal before a state High Court, the accused counsel prayed the court to quash the case or order for retrial with compensation to the convict.
The state counsel, appearing for the defendants urged the court to order a retrial before a more competent magistrate.
He disqualified the appellant's request for quashing the earlier trial. However, the court, in the verdict yesterday, issued a retrial order without compensation for the filmmaker who has spent over 60 days in prison.
