Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu is expected to appear in court for the commencement of his treason trial alongside three others. However, Kanu’s whereabouts has remained unknown, a development that has placed his sureties at risk of being sent to prison. The Biafra group has issued a threat calling on the army to bring Nnamdi Kanu to court or it will take up arms against security operatives.
Kanu was billed to appear before trial Justice Binta Nyako to be re-arraigned on an amended five count charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, alongside three other pro-Biafra agitators- Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie.
However, Kanu’s whereabouts has remained unkown, a development that has placed his sureties, including a serving Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe and a Jewish High Chief Priest, Immanuu El-Shalom, at risk of being sent to prison.
FG is prosecuting the defendants through the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.
Charges against them border mainly on criminal conspiracy and treasonable felony.
