Nigerian government lawyer has called for an arrest warrant to be issued for secessionist leader Nnamdi Kanu, and also to revoke his bail stating that he (Kanu) failed to appear at his treason trial in the capital, Abuja.
However, in response, Mr Kanu’s lawyer completely denied knowledge of his client saying he did not know the whereabouts of Nnandi Kanu and that whether alive or dead remains a mystery to him (the lawyer).
He said, ” I have not seen Mr Kanu the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra group since a security force raid last month on his home in the south-east”.
It will be recalled that Mr Kanu was released on bail in April after being detained without trial for more than a year and half by the federal government.
The treason trial of missing pro-Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu has been adjourned, with the judge ordering that the people who stood as surety for him must produce him at the court’s next sitting on 20 November.
However, both the defence and the prosecution say they do not know the whereabouts of Mr Kanu, the leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (Ipob), which is campaigning for an independent state in south-eastern Nigeria.
Some of Mr Kano’s supporters were in the court building to show their solidarity with him.
Meanwhile, the senator, who stood as surety when Mr Kanu was freed on bail in April, has asked if he can be “relieved of that role”.
