Federal High Court Abuja adjourns Nnamdi Kanu's trial till October as Nnamdi Kanu's whereabout remains unknown


The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) till October 21, 2021 after the SSS refused to present him in court today July 26, 2021.

The preceding judge, Justice Binta Nyako adjourned the case after Nnamdi Kanu did not show up for the trial which according to the prosecution counsel M.B Abubakar was due to logistics reason.

M.B Abubakar however told the court that the case was slated for hearing but Justice Nyako said the case could not be heard in as much as Kanu was absent.

Nnamdi Kanu's lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor told the court that he got information that Kanu had been taken out of Abuja and out of the DSS custody to a correctional centre.

He also said his team has not been granted access to Nnamdi Kanu in about ten 10 days. He equally raised an alarm concerning what the Buhari's regime would do to his client who has been having health issues in the DSS custody.
