by Victor Ndubuisi

The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday 26, July 2021, continued his trial at the Abuja High Court.

Recall that the Biafra leader was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria on the 27th of June, 2021.

The secessionist was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date which is July 26 and 27.

Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.


The Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government is expected to amend the charges against the IPOB leader.

AGF Abubakar Malami had accused Nnamdi Kanu of ordering the killing of security operatives in the South-East and South-South.
