Nigerian Government To Begin Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial In Absentia
Nigerian Government is set to Commence Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial In Absentia. According to report, a federal high court in Abuja is ready to commence the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB group.
The case scheduled for November 26th, will feature five prosecution witnesses lined up to testify against Nnamdi Kanu. This is according to a hearing notice served on the prosecution team in the office of the attorney general and Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
It will be recalled that Kanu’s bail was revoked in March 2019 by Justice Binta Nyarko, who also ordered for his arrest and directed that his trial on charges of treasonable felony proceed in his absence. She hinged the order on Kanu’s failure to appear in court since April 25th, 2017.
