The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the trial of leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, until February 20, 2018.
Justice Nyako on Tuesday adjourned Kanu’s trial after Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe had urged the court to visit the home of Kanu in Abia state.
Abaribe is one of the three sureties of the missing IPOB leader.
The motion, filed by Abaribe’s lawyer, Chukwuma Umeh (SAN) alleged subsequent arrest and “taking away of Kanu by the Nigerian Army.”
As part of the grounds for the motion, Abaribe contended that Kanu was at his residence before and all through the period of September 11 to 14, 2017, when the house was allegedly invaded by soldiers.
