IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Arrives Court For Trial



The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday arrived at the Federal High Court in Abuja amidst tight security.

The IPOB leader was brought to the Court in a black Sports Utility Vehicles at about 8am.

Naija News reports that the sitting had yet to commence as of the time of this report.

Security operatives barred journalists, lawyers and staff of the FHC from entering the Court premises.

From Transcorp Hilton through the Ministry of Justice and Abia House, a heightened presence of a combined team of Police, Army, Department of State Services operatives estimated to be over 3,000 can be seen.

Recall that the Biafra leader was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria on the 27th of June, 2021.

The secessionist was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date which is July 26 and 27.

The DSS however failed to produce the Biafra activist in court on the said date citing logistics reasons, hence the postponement of trial to today.
