The Nigerian Federal High Court in Abuja has set a date for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu’s court trial for the 31st of March 2020 on grounds of treasonable felony.
President Muhammadu Buhari has instructed the Federal High Court Abuja to reject any request of bail concerning the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Before his disappearance in September 2017, after his home was invaded by soldiers, Nnamdi Kanu was already being prosecuted for treason on his agitation to break the Republic of Biafra away from Nigeria and set it up as a new nation, free from the tribalism and discrimination of other Nigerians.
In 2019 Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu’s counsel made a request to the Federal High Court to restore his bail and said Nnamdi Kanu will return to Nigeria if the high court can guarantee his safety.
Justice Binta Nyako, Federal High Court Judge Abuja said prison would be the safest place for Nnamdi Kanu if he were to return to Nigeria.
