News - by RadioNow / Jul. 26th, 2021

The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu resumes on Monday the 26th of July, before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

Kanu is being tried by the Federal Government on charges bordering on treasonable felony, terrorism, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

Although he was granted bail on health grounds, Kanu jumped bail and was re-arrested on the 29th of June.

Following his re-arrest and trial in court last month, Justice Binta Nyako granted the request of the prosecution counsel that Mazi Kanu be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

As at the close of work on Friday, the court’s management was reported to be working with security agencies to avert possible security breaches in view of the large turnout of IPOB followers and other spectators witnessed during previous trial dates.

Although reporters covering the judicial system were issued special identity cards for the coverage, only 10 were approved by the DSS to witness the proceedings.
