IPOB Leader, Three Others To Know Fate On April 25

The Federal High Court Abuja, on Monday insisted that the identity of witnesses who are security personnel would be concealed in the on-going trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

"Security operatives need to be protected, not because of this case, but because of the future; so, as long as the witnesses are security personnel, they will be taken behind a screen", Nyako said.

In the same vein, Justice Nyako slated April 6, 2017 to rule on Nnamdi Kanu's application seeking the variation of the earlier order of the court on witness protection.

He reminded the court that kanu had been granted unconditional release by several courts including the Federal High Court, presided by Justice Ademola, but the Federal Government has failed to comply with the orders.

Mr. Kanu is now being tried by the federal government for treason based on his formation of IPOB, establishment of Radio Biafra, and his call for a sovereign Biafran state.

He stated that in the course of detaining the him, Kanu suffered severe health issues and prayed the court to grant the application on grounds of the failing health of the defendant and in most liberal terms, stressing that as a law abiding citizen, he will not jump bail but would be available for trial.

Counsel representing the federal government, Mr Labaran Shuaibu while objecting to the bail application of the defendants, asked the court to refuse the bail applications, stating that the constant delay in the prosecution of this case is predicated on the constant interlocutory applications from the defendants.

Backed by a vocal group of pro-Biafra agitators ahead of hearing today, Kanu, in the company of Igbo elders, made a colourful appearance in court after his 11-count charge was reduced to five.
