Nnamdi Kanu spends Christmas in custody, as court adjourns trial


Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group may have his Christmas and New Year celebrations in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) as the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned his trial till January 19, 2022.

Kanu was rearrested in June and brought back to Nigeria after jumping bail and absconding from trial.

The separatist leader is currently facing a seven-count charge bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony.

It was learnt that his lawyers staged a walkout in protest against the refusal to grant some of the members of his legal team entry into the trial court.

In a brief ruling, Justice Binta Nyako expressed displeasure over the conduct of Kanu’s lawyers. She then adjourned the case till January 19, 2022, for trial.
