IPOB Speaks On Hiring New Lawyers For Nnamdi Kanu

The lawyers to embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafran (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, have arrived the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The legal team, led by Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, are set to engage in a legal battle against the team of the federal government.

It was gathered that Ejiofor and his team arrived the court as early as 8am with over 50 others already inside the court room.

Reports suggests that security is relaxed from the Court’s main gate to that of the Court door, which is unlike previous sittings.

Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader, has not been brought to the court as at the time of filing in this report.

According to Daily Post, Kanu’s bail motion would be entertained by Justice Binta Nyako later in the day after attending to regular matters slated for the day.

Naija News reports that Nnamdi Kanu is facing an amended 7-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism which were brought against him by the Federal Government after his re-arrest and repatriation to Nigeria in June this year

The IPOB leader has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) from where he attends his court sessions in Abuja amidst heavy security.

Justice Binta Nyako had adjourned Kanu’s case till January 19 and 20, 2022, for trial.

However, the IPOB leader is set to appear in an emergency court session scheduled for today, in what some sources say is a move to grant the Biafra activist bail.
