The Department of State Services (DSS) arraigned Nnamdi kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), at a magistrate court in Abuja on Monday, according to Channels Television.
Since his arrest by the DSS on October 18, there have been series of protests in some parts of south-south and south-east in demand for his release.
Kanu was arrested after he arrived the country from his base in the United Kingdom.
Last Wednesday, the court mandated the security agency to produce him “unfailingly” after refusing to arraign him on two separate occasions despite a court order.
In his ruling, Shuaibu Usman, the magistrate, said Kanu should be allowed to identify his legal team.
Kanu is standing trial over alleged criminal conspiracy, managing and belonging to an unlawful society and criminal intimidation.
The DSS accused him of forming an unlawful society with the purpose of establishing the republic of Biafra, proclaiming to be the leader of the Republic of Biafra and setting up a radio of Biafra.
