Nnamdi Kanu Refused To Appear In Court – FG Tells Court | READ WHY

The Federal government represented by the Director of Public Prosecution, Mr. M.B. Abubakar, on Monday, told a Federal High Court in Abuja that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was absent in court in protest.


According to Abubakar, all efforts made to ensure that Kanu appeared in court failed as he insisted on not making a court appearance until the October 13, 2022 court of appeal judgement, ordering his release is obeyed.

 

“My lord, I understand that the defendant declined to come to court today.

“As of last week, the defendant was intimated of this sitting and he did not object. However, when I called the office this morning, I was informed that the defendant woke up and declined to come to court.

“All entreaties and pleas were made but he refused to come to court”, Abubakar told the court.

However, Nnamdi Kanu’s lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN said the allegation was strange as Kanu had never hidden his intention to always be in court.

“My lord, this is totally strange to me because this is a person that has never hidden his intention to always be in court. In fact, even in processes we filed at both the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court, the defendant said he would want to be present in court for hearing of all the matters,” he said.
