Nnamdi Kanu appears in Court
Embattled Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, was finally arraigned on Monday, in an Abuja Magistrate Court.

The court had ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to produce Mr. Kanu unfailingly before it on Monday.

Kanu had earlier failed to appear in court as the prosecution counsel, Mr Moses Idakwo, told the court that the IPOD leader was not brought to court because of an application challenging the jurisdiction of the court to continue the trial, which was already slated for hearing.

Following the absence of the accused person, Magistrate Shuaibu Usman ordered the DSS to produce him on November 23, to enable him identify his legal team.
Citizen Edith Otubo who took to Facebook said: “Though he now looks thin and somehow unkempt because he hasn’t had a hair cut.
“But I can assure you that everything including everyone is on high tempo but calm, considering the fact that after much rumours and speculations that our director is dead.”
Mr Nnamdi Kanu is standing trial for alleged criminal conspiracy, managing and belonging to an unlawful society and criminal intimidation contrary to sections 97 and 397 of the penal code.

Kanu was arrested on October 18 by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on his arrival from the United Kingdom.
