The office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has said it expects the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to appear in court for his ongoing trial over alleged treason.
An official in the AGF’s prosecution team, who spoke to Daily Trust, stated that the Abuja Federal High Court on Tuesday, will determine the application seeking to revoke the bail granted Kanu by Justice Binta Nyako, which the prosecution on August 25 claimed he violated.
Kanu is facing a five-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and criminal defamation, alongside Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
The official said the prosecution was not aware of reports of Kanu’s disappearance, maintaining that he was expected to be in court to defend his case like other defendants.
“What you are reading about him are speculations. When we meet in court, whatever happens we will see,” he said.
