Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, and operator of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu on Tuesday morning arrived the Federal High Court Abuja for the commencement of his trial, but refused to come down from the prison van. This led the prison officials to call his lawyer, Chuks Mouma, who after much persuasion was able to get Kanu to come down from the vehicle. He however refused to take off the handcuffs on him even while being led to the courtroom.
The Department of State Services, DSS, had arraigned the embattled Director of Radio Biafra before Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the same court on a six-count charge of treasonable felony but the matter could not be continued following Kanu’s vote of no confidence on Mohammed. Following Kanu’s vote of no confidence on the judge, the matter was brought before Justice John Tsoho.
