IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu arrives Federal High Court Abuja for trial

Embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday was presented by the Department of State Service (DSS) for his trial in the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Recall NewsWireNGR had earlier reported the Court was under heavy security in preparation for the appearance of Nnamdi Kanu.

The Federal Government has also filed an amended seven-count charge against the IPOB leader.

Kanu is expected to take a fresh plea before trial Justice Binta Nyako, on an amended seven-count charge bordering on incitement, treasonable felony and terrorism.

Some of the security agents at the court were drawn from the Department of State Service, the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Nigerian Army (NA).

Meanwhile, Ohanaeze has called on the Presidency to ensure that Kanu is produced in Court on Thursday.

Ohanaeze said the appearance of Kanu in Court “is necessary to prove to the global community that Nnamdi Kanu is not only hale and hearty but that shady judicial process is not contemplated while on trial”.

Also, the proscribed IPOB group has announced a Sit-At-Home scheduled for Thursday as protest for the continuous detention of its leader.
