The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has been adjourned till October, 21st, 2021.
This was due to Kanu’s absence at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.
The prosecution counsel, M. B. Abubakar had informed the court sitting presided by Justice Binta Nyako, that the matter was slated for hearing and that they were ready to continue.
However, Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the court that there was a pending application before the court to transfer Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the Deparment of State Services (DSS) to the Kuje prison, Abuja.
Justice Nyako stated that the trial could not continue in the absence of the defendant and called the DSS to produce the IPOB leader in court for trial.
