Photos obtained by NigerianEye have confirmed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, appeared in court today.

 

The photos showed Kanu and members of his legal counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Aloy Ejimakor and others in the courtroom together.

 

Kanu was arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja today over charges of treasonable felony and terrorism.

 

A seven-count charge was last week slammed by the Federal Government against Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services.

 When the charges were read to him, the IPOB leader pleaded not guilty.

 

During the last proceedings, the IPOB leader was not brought to court. This was blamed on “logistical issues” by the prosecuting lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar.

 

His lead counsel, Ejiofor, in a press conference yesterday, urged authorities to provide his client in court today to allay fears held by people in the South-East about his well-being.


He said, “We also wish to state that the current tension and regular Monday sit-at-home being observed by our people in the South East, despite the exercise being called off by our Client’s peaceful movement, is steadily gaining momentum because our people are yet to see and believe that our Client Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still alive.

 

“This suspicion was further fueled by his non-production in Court on the 26th day of July 2021, for no tangible reason. Our people’s demand for his unconditional release from custody is a well-informed position, which the Government at the centre currently persecuting Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should give a listening ear to, and speedily activate the process towards his freedom, as he has committed no offence known to law.”

 

He added, “Further note that our objection to the competency or otherwise of the newly amended seven-count charge is now before the Court, and we believe most strongly that there shall be light at the end of the tunnel.”
