The Federal Government on Tuesday presented the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu before Federal High Court in Abuja.
Kanu’s appearance after initially jumping bail and fled the country followed earlier announcement on the same Tuesday of the secessionist’s extradition in a joint press briefing by the Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami and the Department of the State Services, DSS.
In the court, following federal government’s counsel, S. M Labaran’s ex-parte application, Justice Binta Nyako ordered that Kanu, who was brought to court in handcuffs and hooded before the court’s sitting, be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Justice Nyako granted an accelerated hearing by bringing the charge pending against him from the earlier adjourned date of October 20 to July 26 and 27.
At the conclusion of proceedings, the DSS operatives who brought him to court, sneaked him away, using the judge’s access stairs.
