Nnamdi Kanu is in FG’s custody, claims lawyer



1min read

Kingsley Ejiofor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has told the Federal High Court in Abuja that his client is still in the custody of the federal government.

Ejiofor said this on Tuesday while announcing his presence in court for the continuation of Kanu’s treason trial.

Three of the co-defendants in the trial — Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi — were present in court

They were brought to court by prison officials at about 10am on Tuesday, but Bright Chimezie, who became a co-accused person in the case following an amendment of the charges, was also absent.

Ejiofor had filed an application in court seeking to compel the Chief of Army Staff to produce Kanu in court as he was last seen on September 14, when his home was invaded by soldiers.

But Orji Uzor-Kalu, former Governor of Abia State, told newsmen that Kanu had fled to the United Kingdom through Malaysia.
