Human rights activist, Prince Deji Adeyanju, given reasons why the DSS failed to produce the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in court.
In a post on his Twitter page, Adeyanju suggested that the federal government has no case against Kanu, hence the failure to bring Kanu to court.
He wrote: “BREAKING: Court adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s trial till October because of failure of DSS to bring him to court.
“There’s no case in the first place. All the show is just to keep him in custody indefinitely.”
This newspaper had earlier reported that the IPOB leader’s trial was adjourned till October 21st, 2021.
Justice Binta Nyako adjourned the trial on Monday at the resumption of proceedings at the court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The trial suffered a setback after the Department of State Services (DSS) failed to produce Kanu in court.
The judge slammed the action of the DSS noting that she had stayed back in her chambers waiting for the defendant to be in court.
She asked the prosecution to be diligent with dates whenever she gives one, stressing that it was important for Kanu to be present at his trial.
