A British envoy in Nigeria has stormed the federal high court in Abuja for the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Kanu is to be re-arraigned today on a seven-count charge as against the five counts he was previously answering to, bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.
The UK representative arrived in a white Toyota Highlander around 8:03 am on Thursday, according to TheCableonline.
Kanu was brought to court in handcuffs on Thursday morning by a combined team of security personnel.
He had jumped bail and fled to the UK in 2017 after he jumped bail, but Kanu’s counsel, Mr. Aloy Ejimakor said the DSS prevented his client from seeking assistance from the UK.
He holds British citizenship, was arrested in June and brought to Nigeria to face trial for treasonable felony.
