Today, the 26th of July, 2021, The Department of State Security Services, (DSS) could not produce in court, Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) and this has generated serious concerns.
THE VENT REPUBLIC can report that Kanu’s absence was predicated on logistics reasons and it is hoped that he would be produced in court at the next sitting of the case.
Justice Binta Nyako had to adjourn the case to October 21st, 2021 for further hearing as she refused to allow the trial to commence in Kanu’s absence.
She also turned down requests from Kanu’s lawyers to transfer him from DSS custody to Kuje Prisons.
Some supporters of the IPOB Leader were seen around the court premises chanting solidarity songs in support of their embattled leader.
THE VENT REPUBLIC had earlier reported that Sahara Reporters Publisher and Ex-AAC Presidential Candidate, Omoyele Sowore was arrested and taken to a police station at the Federal secretariat, 200 meters away from the court.
