The trial of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, is scheduled to resume today, Tuesday October 17th, before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The sitting will be the court’s first after Justice Binta Nyako granted bail to Kanu on April 25.

But Nnamdi Kanu’s lead defence lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said his client remains missing. And the matter would not continue if the Federal Government fails to produce him in court.

In an interview with Punch’s correspondent on Sunday, Ejiofor insisted that Kanu was still in the custody of the Federal Government and if not produced in court on Tuesday, the trial would not continue.

“On Tuesday, if the Federal Government fails to produce him in court, then the trial will not go on. It is simple. We have asked them to produce him in court because he is in their custody,” the lawyer said.
Ejiofor had, on September 27, led other lawyers to file an originating motion, marked FHC/ABJ/CS/908/2017, before the Federal High Court in Abuja, praying for an order directing the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to produce Kanu in court.

Punchng.com reports that the lawyers claimed that soldiers on September 14 invaded the IPOB leader’s house “on a murderous raid, where live and mortar bullets were fired on unarmed and defenceless populace, leaving 28 persons dead and abducting many.

“It is either the respondent’s rampaging soldiers abducted the applicant during this raid or they must have killed him in the process,” part of the grounds of the motion read.
