Abuja, (an24) – The trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has suffered an early setback as power went off in the Federal High Court sitting at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, where the trial is currently going on.
Justice John Tshoho walked into the court room at about 10: 22 am and immediately the power in the courtroom went off.
As at the time of filing this report, the situation at the Federal High Court, Abuja remained absurd as the courtroom remained in darkness.
Kanu alongside his co-accused, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi are facing a six-count charge of treasonable felony, brought against them by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Although they have been granted bail twice by a federal high court sitting in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government has refused to obey the court orders raising doubts over the possibility of Mr. Kanu and his co-accused regaining freedom.
In a related development, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) alongside Ugoeze Nnenna Kanu, the mother of the Biafran leader, will on Thursday, April 28, 2016, stage a protest at the European parliament in Belgium in a bid to demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu as well as the continuous agitation for the creation of Biafra Republic.
